Candlelite Inn restaurant: an Arlington icon since 1957

One of the oldest restaurants in Arlington is the Candlelite Inn. It opened in 1957 with a simple menu — tacos, pizza, beer, and soft drinks. Early clientele likely included workers from the nearby General Motors plant, which is still a fixture of Arlington. Today, the restaurant is known for its eclectic menu and ambiance from a by-gone era. My wife and I recently made our first visit to the Candlelite Inn. Yes, I’m ashamed to say that we have never been. Spoiler alert: We loved it and will definitely be going back! Let’s check it out.
