    I liked this place but I don't really get the hype... It's a nostalgic, old-school diner with average/solid diner fare.

    Corned beef hash is the best I've ever had in my life. Home fries were cold & tough without real flavor. Mashed potatoes were adequate but made without butter or seasoning. Used skim milk on them

    Positive: Some of the food was fabulous! Best corned beef hash I've ever had. (Stole a bite of my husbands). Chopped steak was flavorful & not dry but way over cooked inside.

    Bob & Edith’s country fried steak was the best food fifteen years ago, and it’s the best food today.

    They've added a second location. 539 S 23rd Street in Crystal City. They took over the Cesar's Diner.... the new location has 20 booths, while the original has 17.

    Food is decent but the French toast is really dry and they don't understand how to dip it into more batter - even when you ask a few times. More butter is not the same as more batter.

    This is one of the few spots I'd recommend after a long night of drinking, or just on a sober quest to satisfy that rumble in your tummy. The staff is great, and the food is SPOT ON!
