I stopped in on 3/5/2017 while visiting the Arlington, VA area. The place is actually quite large inside. The menu was varied and offered many great specials. I ordered a trukey club sandwich and it was absolutely HUGE! I have also been told the hot chocolate there is sensational.

Really nice staff, clean place, good dishes. Easy to find, easy to park. Big servings. We love eating here during Lent as their fish dishes are very good.

So, for those in the know, this used to be Pasha Cafe. It is one of those places which is tucked away in a small strip just off Lee Highway, almost next door to the 7-11. Don't be put iff by a rather drab exterior, make an effort to try it and you won't be disappointed. They have a great... More

The breakfasts are great! It's one of the few places where I trust the eggs Benedict. The French Toast is also something special. The omelets are great too, served with heaping portions of home fries. I recommend the food, and take my family here something like every 4 to 6 weeks. I would just caution you that the prices are...

Priced maybe a little high but portions are huge - had monte cristo on their house made French toast, philly cheese steak and burgers and everything was tasty. Had to come in because of Guy Fieri and DDD - French toast was superb!

If you can make it past the dessert display you'll have a great choice of breakfast, lunch or dinner menus. Substantial omelets, with good hash browns . Now back to the desserts! Even if you are full you have to take some home

I come here for Greek food every month or so. The parking is insane but worth it. Expect to wait on the weekends. Save room for dessert:)

Standard diner fare and adequate service. Often seems more expensive than other similar restaurants.

Had breakfast here. The food is really good. Our party had Nova Scotia eggs Benedict (me) which I enjoyed. Three people had challah French toast, and one had an omelette. Everyone enjoyed, the portions are quite large. A lot of French toast boxed up and taken home. Only four stars because this was expensive. Basically five people for breakfast with... More

Two of us stopped in at Metro 29 Diner for a quick, convenient lunch. The atmosphere is similar to a Silver Diner, but instead of table juke boxes, they have TV screens with CNN, up high where each person can see one, which we like. We both had Greek platters, one with grilled chicken (from the salad list) and the... More
