I'm looking for a place to take some guests to in Northern Virginia for dinner. Someone has asked for a plain old run of the mill diner type place. I do need something that does have at least some plain old American dishes. I would also consider going to like a seafood dive kind of place. Or maybe a hole in the wall place that does barbecue or something. Or the plain old burger and fries diner. However I would not mind going to a place that also has Greek, Italian, or something else in addition to the American stuff. I get the idea that they would like to see some type of unique place with personality that you might see on that show Diners, Drive In's, and Dives. Metro 29 in Arlington came to mind but I asked around and most people said that they found it to be uninteresting, We will be in Alexandria doing other things during the day so Alexandria or Arlington would be nice. However I am fine with going elsewhere in Northern Virginia if it is worth it, I'm really drawing a blank on this one. I work downtown and so I usually end up eating downtown. Thanks for any suggestions.
