Washington/Alexandria tourist areas - quick & cheap eats

Food Tourist | Apr 19, 2007 11:01 AM

I'm supervising a high school bus trip (from Toronto) April 25-28 to Gettysburg, Washington and Alexandria. We will be staying at the Best Inn in Gettysburg and need to find a quick supper nearby before our Ghost walking tour. The next day, we visit Washington Cathedral and Arlington National Cemetary (need to find quick lunch in between). We then check in to the Hawthorn Suites in Alexandria VA, and can explore that area all evening (a more leisurely supper). On the third day, we visit the Holocaust Memorial museum, and have to find quick lunch before visiting the main museums of the Smithsonian (natural history and air&space), followed by the Spy museum. Dinner at either Potomac Mills Outlet Mall or Landmark Mall area (have 3 hours at the mall).

We have 50 students and 5 teachers, but for most of the lunches/dinners, we can leave the students to their own devices and enjoy some time on our own. Please advise!

P.S. I'm a Toronto 'hound and really enjoy trying local/regional cuisine - so if there's anything unique to your area, please highlight. We will not have time for fancy/upscale meals and please don't suggest places that charge over $20 for main courses.
