1.) Aria Pizzaria– 1300 Penn Ave. NW Washington, DC – This authentic pizzeria is located at the most convenient spot ever, the Ronald Regan Building. This attraction offers what I call a 2 For 1 with the ability to visit the Ronald Regan Building, and dine all in one trip. Aria offers tasty sandwiches, pizzas, and salads to please any palate. There is even great outside dining available during the summer months.
2.) Johnny Rockets– A chain family friendly restaurant, offering the feel of the 50’s and 60’s with it’s retro décor, awesome Motown style music, great shakes, and if dining before a movie, such as at my family favorite location, Kingstown, in Alexandria, VA, you can get discounted movie tickets!
3.) Spartan Family Restaurant– located in Burke, VA- offering a wide variety of Greek, Italian, and American cuisine. Spartan has long been a hidden jewel, with local families flocking to dine in after church services on Sundays, during the week for healthy, homemade, delicious meals, and as tradition for some families on special occasions. Visit it’s family friendly atmosphere, there is no doubt that you will agree that they are one of the best in the area!
4.) Olympian’s Family Restaurant– Alexandria, VA – yet another Greek specialty, family owned. Olympian’s has been in existence for quite some time. Many have enjoyed the fact that on a Friday night, you can find this restaurant packed with local families.
5.) Flippin Pizza– Bethesda, MD- with multiple locations throughout the area. As we all know, our kids love to eat Pizza! At Flippin, you can get non-greasy, not too spicy, handmade pizza delivered, at a family friendly price. They even have wonderful lunch specials for us adults for quick lunch breaks. I recommend the white pizza, delicious!
