The Hail & Hog Kitchen & Tap hasn't been open at One Loudoun for very long, but in the short time it's been open, it's captivated the DMV and the Washingtonian, who place the restaurant among their listing of the "Top 10 Most Exciting Restaurants to Try This August" at No. 10.
Hail & Hog Kitchen and Tap on Thursday, May 19, 2016, provide a first look at the soon-to-be opened restaurant in Loudoun County, Va.
In late May, the Hail & Hog had a "soft" opening for the Redskins players, coaches, front office staff and even local dignitaries. Mark Moseley – the 1982 AP NFL MVP – was among the many alumni that attended the event. He was extremely impressed by the restaurant's layout, and everything it had to offer.
"It's good to have another place for good friends and good people who are Redskins fans to come," Moseley said. "I'm sure a lot of the players will be here. I think it will be an interesting and exciting place."
Redskins general manager Scot McCloughan was also in attendance, and seconded everything Moseley had to say about the establishment.
"When I first took the job, my first press conference, [I said] I was lucky to be in Green Bay and with San Fran[cisco] in two storied franchises, and to be able to come to the Redskins and have the same feeling about the Hall of Famers, the World Championships, its special," McCloughan said. "I think that's why the fan base is so strong and why things like this are so important for the fans to be able to come out and see."
