Good local food near tourist locations

OP here - you guys are fantastic!!! and I appreciate the interest in my culinary well-being. It is hard to find that balance between not to miss, cheap and convenient and I really appreciate all of the input. Keep the suggestions coming and I'll let you know how we survive.
BTW - (1) we are in Foggy Bottom, so the TJ/WF option will get us started. (2) there is a mystery writer I like (George Pelecanos) whose characters are always in DC's Greek diners, so I have to hit one of those; (3) I'll fix you all up with some real Texas BBQ whenever you come this way.

Thank you for these suggestions - I'm getting hungry already. Another question - is it worth a trip to Old Ebbitts Grill and/or Clydes (not sure if they are the same) for the history? Are there any other historical places you'd suggest, just for the atmosphere or because the food is so bad, it's worth the story :-)

I'm coming to DC for spring break with my 2 teenage boys for the usual tourist activities. We are from Houston, so we get our share of great ethnic food, but we love to try good local places. Any suggestions for not to miss places - atmosphere and price matter, along with just good food would be appreciate. BTW - we are staying near GWU.
