More dining options are coming to Tysons Corner with the arrival of a new Tex Mex restaurant called Rango’s and a trio of Hawaiian-inspired Pokeworks locations starting next month.

Rango’s (1934 Old Gallows Road, Vienna, Va.) is expected to make flour tortillas on-site, as well as serve margaritas and sangrias.

The 6,500-square-foot restaurant is scheduled to open this fall, its Newmark Knight Frank broker Paul Phillips tells Eater. The new 200-seat eatery comes from Ismael Rosa, who’s versed in the cuisine, and his son Robert. Stay tuned for more details about its offerings, ETA, and design, which will include indoor, outdoor, and bar areas.

In addition, raw fish import Pokeworks plans to plant three locations in the area, with the first slated to open inside Tysons Corner Center mall in October. The growing chain also recently inked a multi-unit agreement for seven new locations in D.C., with the first debuting any day at 1110 Vermont Avenue NW.

The brand, founded in 2015 in Irvine, Calif., currently has one area location inside Annandale, Va.’s Asian food court The Block, serving poke bowls, burritos, and salads. Its build-your-own menu includes a mix of proteins, sauces, and toppings to choose from, along with one-off orders like kale noodle bowls.

D.C. has seen a surge of poke-themed arrivals as of late. California import Poke Bar just opened inside Merrifield’s Mosaic District complex and already has another location in mind for Rosslyn. Meanwhile, Union Station welcomed Chicago-based Aloha Poke Co. this spring and another is scheduled to land in Dupont Circle later this year.

Tysons Corner’s newest fast-casual option is stir-fry chain Honeygrow, which opened over the weekend (8399 Leesburg Pike, Vienna, Va.).
