(aka Long John Silver's or Chi Chi's)

Bob’s Sluglines Parking Lot tentatively to be closed in MARCH 2020 for garage construction. Slugs will lose about 278 spaces and slug pickup stations during construction for about 2 years. Fairfax County is working with the commuters to find alternative space for parking and pickup locations. Please use the message board forum to discuss the impacts! [Go to forum]


Location: Just west of I-95 near the intersection of Old Keene Mill Road and Bland Street in Springfield, VA near the Springfield Town Center (aka Springfield Mall). The line itself in the morning moved next to Sunoco Gas station across Kmart parking lot. For DC slugger cars enter from Keene Mill Road and go around the loop.

Description: This location has undergone the test of time.  Although the construction of the "Mixing Bowl" disrupted this line for a short time, it is currently in full operation.  Because of some of the changes there are a few names to describe this location (Bob's, Springfield Plaza, Long John Silvers, Chi Chi's).  All names are actually the same slug line. There are two slug lines that operate out of the commuter lot. Line #1: L’Enfant Plaza and 14th street. Line #2: 18th Street locations (sometimes called Memorial Bridge).

New Springfield Survey! An effort has been underway regarding the slug lines at Springfield. Please take the 4 question survey below. [Springfield Survey]
