I will be in Alexandria next week for work and am looking for any must eat places in the DC area. Preferably easy within easy public transportation; or a short-ish drive away from the city. Thanks to all.

The guys from Pork Barrel BBQ have a restaurant in Alexandria...


I haven't been there yet but have sent a few friends there and they all raved about it.

Pizza Paradiso in Alexandria. It's good stuff. And good beer selection.

I have to add this joint. Bread and Kabob. It's not close to public transportation, but whenever I would visit my buddy in DC, we would go there. Dive, but very good eats!

I have a friend who lives in that area - what kind of fool you looking for or are you just looking for general must go type of places? What kind of coin are you willing to drop?

Shrimp and grits at 219 were pretty good. I think they called it Big Easy BBQ shrimp.

The menu at the Warehouse, right across the street looked pretty good, too.

I think tomorrow there's some sort of crab feast thing going on at Union Street.

Thanks all, for the replies. Wasn't available to go to any of the places, but I do appreciate it. I will say that I was able to go to Ben's Chili Bowl. It was very tasty for a chili covered sausage, but seems to be a place to go for the experience.

Currently sitting in the airport waiting on a flight that has been repeatedly delayed. Had to switch to a different airline and an airport 2 hours from home in order to get home tonight. Have a contest to judge tomorrow, and know that they might be short without me.
