Breakfast in Dale City or Quantico?

We like Harold and Cathy's Dumphries Cafe. It is SOOOO old school! Everything is freshly made to order, the coffee is good and it is an incredible value.

Amici's restaurant in Ebensburg

Anyone been? My mother wants to go and I'm curious as to what to order, what's good and what to avoid. I like a good bolognese and seafood, and from looking at their menu online it looks good.

New York Italian Deli and Restaurant

We went to this place in Brandywine on New Year's Eve for lunch and it was amazing! No atmosphere (I remember when it was an antique store)but food that exceeded my expectations. I have very specific ideas on what an Italian sub should be; no mayo, vinegar, oregno, tons of meat, provalone, onion and roasted peppers and this place did it perfectly. I could barely finish half of mu sub. The kids got a Times Square with Spicy chicken cutlet, bacon, swiss cheese and chipotle aoili and an Archie Bunker with corned beef, pastrami, turkey, swiss cheese and russian dressing. They couldn't get over how big their sandwiches were and how tasy and fresh tasting. The bread was really good as well, with a bite yet really fresh and good tasting. I will definitely return, it was that good. I liked the sub better than the Italian Store's.

WHERE TO FIND SQUID INK, SABA AND MORTADELLA

Went to the Italian Store yesterday and found saba and mortadella. I guess I should not have gone on a Saturday, it was off the chain crowded! The line was too long to get something to eat, so I ended up having lunch at BGR next door. It was ver good, thanks for the help!

I've had success finding most of the ingredients at GrandMart, but am at a loss as where to find squid ink, saba (I thought my local liquor store carried it, but I was wrong, and mortadella. I live in So MD, but work in Arlington.

Shake Shack - Nationals Park

Totally amazing, especially for a ballpark. The food was hot, the fries crisp and the concrete was nicely prepared. They seem to have a really talented staff, they were very knowledgable about the menu. They do have a more limited menu than the other Shake Shack.
