Dissppointing

We were there for breakfast on a mid week morning, the waitress looked tired and uninspired. We ordered omelets, and found they did NOT include potatoes. The bread was commercial, the presentation was poor. Its clean, and location is ideal. We won't be back - we will look for a breakfast place in... read more

The perfect place if you are looking for a diner. Decent breakfast that comes out exactly how you order it. Extremely quick service.

The first time I ate here, I had to use the ATM since they don't take credit cards. The second time, I brought cash. First time, I had breakfast and it was average. Nothing too special. Second time I had their lunch special of Avgolemono soup and barbecue sandwich with coleslaw. Way too much food for one person, one seating.... More

Great food. Beautiful "Queen of Sheba" waitress. There is no better place to have breakfast in Arlington or even Washington DC.

My family has been frequenting this restaurant for the past 30 years! They have the best Greek food ever! I always order the Gyro with Greek salad on the side. Their other sandwiches and salads are good too. They also serve breakfast all day, but I'm not a huge fan of their breakfasts. If you're looking for a casual laid... More

Cash only, good service and prices. Pancakes were good, my son ordered an extra one partway through dinner and it was delivered promptly hot off the grill. Fluffy omelette, crisp bacon and very good gyro meat. Solid variety diner menu, would return.

Highly disappointed in this Diner. Breakfast was gross. They use velvet-a in their omelets, our waffles were burnt, the grits had an odd "instant" nasty after taste, the potato fries were more like gross mush. We only ate about 1/2 our food. The bill was massive and the waitress informed me they don't take credit cards. She said there was... More

It's not what we expected. We went in because we wanted lunch and were at the Giant. One of us had a Gyro and the other the Greek salad. Both were very good. Servers were friendly and price was in line with chain restaurants. Good independent restaurant.

Very nice servers. Salad is iceberg. Gyros look good, but I haven't tried yet.
