Transplant from Oregon to Woodbridge, VA

hello all,

we've just moved from portland, oregon and made an offer on a house in woodbridge, va. we opted for the suburbs for affordable housing and a bit of a respite from the bustle of d.c. metro (my husband works at l'enfant plaza). as a prideful foodie, the only thing that really worries me about the location is the presence of a LOT of chain restaurants. i know i can head towards d.c. for more adventurous food, but need some options closer to home:

mom and pop diner food
anything ethnic that is good (chinese, thai, indian, italian, ANYTHING)
good coffee (NOT STARBUCKS)

anything not cookie-cutter would be great. i also want to support local eateries.

thanks so much for any suggestions!
