I walked 1 mile round trip from AT&T, and it was totally worth it. I was in a hurry, so I ordered my burger and onion rings (which tasted like deep fried heaven) to go, but I strongly recommend taking the time to sit down...More

Lunch at the Record Grill, just a few yards from the JFK museum cafe (who were singularly disinterested in serving anyone). Super friendly staff in this traditional cash only lunch counter, generous portions, low prices, spotlessly clean with quick service, thoroughly recommend.

You want eggs and hash browns straight off the grill where they literally turn around and serve it too you hot at a vintage lunch counter? This is your place. Old school greasy spoon fare served with a smile.

This tiny diner is just a block from the book depository and is clean with good old diner menu and food. Cash only. Nothing fancy but easy and pretty good.

Stopped in for lunch before touring Sixth Floor museum. Friendly service, inexpensive menu. 4 tables and maybe 6 counter stools; really small. Sounds great for breakfast!

If I knew that the bacon was crisp to perfection, I would have totally ignored the rest and got 10 slices. Heaven. I did not pay attention to see what the guy is doing. Packed little place, the most friendly lady at the visitor centers...More

Cheeseburger $2.10. You can get it with bacon for extra. BLT right proportion. Mostly bacon then tomato then lettuce on fresh toasted bread. 5 tables and some stools at a bar. No a/c but it was cool in November so not an issue. Quick service....More
