I agree completely! I love how NC and SC have large signs posted as you walk in the door as to their "grade".

And, some are so small, you feel awkward turning around and walking back out. (Although we have done that a few times).

In Fredericksburg there is a roadside barbecue stand called McCoy's. He's located on Rt. 3 just past the Central Park shopping area.

Evans Farm Inn in McLean was the place for local Southern food. Now you have to drive down to Smithfield for decent spoon bread and salt cured Smithfield Ham. Gadsby's Tavern in Old Town has Colonial-era "Old South" cuisine. Eatonville along the 14th Street restaurant row in DC is good for more typical deep-South cuisine.

Eatonville is pretty pricey, and their food is not exactly typical of most southern cuisine. They have sort of the faux elitist southern food.

That's true. I meant it wasn't DC, Md., or Va. Southern. There aren't any places left that serve the regional Southern cuisine these days... Does anyone know a local "Southern" seafood restaurant that serves hush puppies? O'Donell's, Hogates and the old Chesapeake Bay Seafood House had them back in the day.

I forgot about Georgia Brown's across from McPhereson Square in the District (near 15th & K, NW)----they specialize in "low country" food. I know it's not in NoVa, but it's a short Metro ride to satisfy a major food-jones. Expensive, though.

Blue and White Carryout in Alexandria. Open 6 AM to 3PM Mon thru Friday.

I can get fried chicken right out of the fryer for breakfast! Prices are ridiculously cheap. chicken livers on Tuesdays.

The chicken and breakfast sandwiches are the way to go. I'm fond of the fried porkchop sandwich with egg, cheese, lettuce and tomato, mayo and hot sauce (beware the bones). Hamburger steak is interesting. The fried fish are formed frozen fillets - not so good.
