basics in pentagon/crystal city?

I posted a few months ago when my husband and I moved to pentagon city, asking for suggestions. Now that we've been here a little while, I'm realizing that what I need most are just everyday "basic" places that were all over the place in NYC, where we came from.

-Bagel place. Seriously, do they exist around here? I really just want t decent bagel place where I can get an egg on my bagel (and not the fake kind). I have heard good things about Manhattan Bagel in Ballston (or is it Clarendon?) but either way, I'd really like to find a place within a 5 minute drive.

-Fast places for dinner in the neighborhood where I can bring takeout home. Cheaper but not McDonalds type of fast food. I have been going to Chipotle more times than I should admit and am DYING for Chick Fil A to open. I've also been going to Sandella's Flatbread Cafe a lot and am sick of it now, same with CPK. Corner Bakery seems really processed and I didn't like it when I went.

-Pizza place- anything decent? We had two terrible experiences with Cafe Pizzaiolo and I am never trying it again!

-Chinese takeout? We tried tasteful delight and it was terrible.

I know I have to leave this area to get good food, but come on, there has to be some decent weeknight options, right?
