I saw a recent discussion here on CHOW about places to eat in Washington DC and Baltimore. It got me wondering about Arlington specifically.
Any suggestions for interesting places, particularly non-big chain, with good food?
We found Rockland's Barbeque on Fairfax Drive totally by chance. There are a few of them around the area, but clearly has that local vibe going on. The food was really good and they have plenty of seating in a retro feeling space. It's great for all ages when you aren't aiming for fussy.
Not too focused on a price point with my question here, as I'd like to learn about anything noteworthy. We sometimes splurge, though mostly aim for budget dining.
Oh, and we rarely drink, so bar/no bar, doesn't matter to us.
Thanks in advance!
