Good food, a local special "hangout", and neighborly people

Louis and Sophia own this diner for many, many years when the emigrated from Greece. Expect a good variety of home cooked meals available all day. If you want chicken for breakfast, just look on their handwritten specialty menu for the day and "you got it." Many of the same faces show up everyday... read more

The atmosphere to be able to visit with friends in a relaxed and comfortable setting while eatting delucious Greek food, and not rushed to leave is perfect here. The owner and staff become like family in just one visit.

I met a friend here for brunch and it was only great because it was walking distance from my apartment. The food wasn't awful it was just the same quality if not worse than I could make at home. The eggs were cold when they got to the table and really just on average. The diner is definitely a diner... More

We were visiting the area and this was a convenient establishment for breakfast in route home. The service was great but my French toast wasn't great (soggy uncooked center and not flavorful). Pure maple syrup was not offered but instead imitation corn syrup. My husband gave 3 stars for his eggs and corn beef hash. Pricing was average for the... More

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 nearby Del Ray. They could be so... 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
