First-time visit for us to this establishment as they don't exist on the West Coast. The smells emanating from here drew us in and we decided on the caramel cashew corn as well as a mixture of cheese corn and regular popcorn. We decided to go with the large bag, which given the name a "large" I would think would be more than a couple servings, but it turns out it was just enough for both of us for a nice dessert. $12 for a large bag. A little pricey but worth the Indulgence. Looking online prices are relatively high for larger tins for your home and enjoyment. Although I would recommend eating hot I'm not sure what I would be missing receiving my order 5-7 later, although fresh may not be obviously as fresh when it's nice and hot

I know Chicago is famous for their deep dish pizza and their style hot dogs but the best food to come out of Chicago is the popcorn. Get the Garrett Mix and you will be happy.

The popcorn is good. I would definitely recommend this place. They have different kinds of flavors also. But, overall it was good.

It was a pleasant surprise to find Garrett's in Pentagon City. The line went quickly and the medium seems huge as we've been eating it for a couple of days. I find the cheesy popcorn to be a bit greasy but addictive. Love the caramel/cheese mix.

Quick stop through Pentagon City on our way to Richmond and we had to go to Garrett's. I try to get some on my way throughChicago so I was more than excited when the Pentagon City store opened. We arrived early on Sunday morning close to opening. We walked right in.. The staff was friendly and engaging. I even expressed the issue of the cheddar being stale at the ATL store (twice) when people delivered that was purchased on Sunday and the young lady made sure I tasted before she added to my Chicago mix. This popcorn mix was freehand the Carmel pecan was delicious as well. I will definitely return.
