restaurant suggestions - near Crystal City area?

Had to change our plans so we decided to stay in Arlington.

Would appreciate suggestions as to mid-priced restaurants in area, sports bar types, chains, etc.

I think you will find plenty of dining options right in Arlington. My wife and I explored the "old-town" area (King St.) last April. It's a fun area with a lot of nice shops and dining. We walked King St from the train station right down to the waterfront park. Our favorite restaurant find there was Southside 815. It's a few blocks away from the rest, but easily walkable. It was a cool hopping place with a varied menu at reasonable prices. Also, don't hesitate to take the Metro if you want to explore Crystal City. It is only 2-3 stops away from Arlington. There are a lot of choices on 23rd St in Crystal City. We liked the Cantina Mexican restaurant there.

There's a list of Crystal City restaurants here:


I particularly like Jaleo (Spanish tapas) and Good Stuff Eatery (burger chain run by Spike Mendelsohn of "Top Chef" fame),
