Want to return to the days when life was simpler? Then head on over to the Arlington Diner.
The 30-year-old eatery at 2923 S. Glebe Road has been a hotspot from the moment the owner opened the doors. A Greek immigrant, he masterfully infused the architecture and culture of his homeland with the trappings of the traditional American greasy spoon.
But it’s the food that keeps fans coming back time and again. Let’s start with the breakfast menu, which includes all of the regulars: eggs, bacon, home fries, French toast and omelets. These staples are so popular, they are available around the clock.
Not in the mood for breakfast? Grab a New York-style deli sandwich, a pasta dish or one of the house specials. Though Alpos embraces the traditional diner fare, he also imports a taste of his culinary heritage. The lunch and dinner menus include Greek specialties like souvlaki or spanakopita.
Hungry patrons need not worry. The portions are generous and the fare delectable. Wallet-conscious diners can relax as well; the dishes are reasonably priced. Please note the diner is cash only.
And if you’re in a rush, you can always call ahead for take-out.
The Arlington Diner at 2923 S. Glebe Road, Arlington, is open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday; 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday. Call 703-549-0677 for more information.
