Florida Avenue Grill

DC's landmark greasy spoon.

From February 2005 Dirt Cheap Eats

BREAKFAST AND BRUNCH BARGAINS 

Only a row of silver bar stools with red vinyl tops separates the booths from the open kitchen, so diners hear bacon sizzling. Breakfast at the 61-year-old grill, where walls are covered with autographed photos of athletes and entertainers, is greasy but good.

Hotcakes ($3.75 for three) are thin and buttery. Three-egg omelets ($7.95)–try the one stuffed with cheese and turkey bacon–come with grits, fried apples, or home fries. Southern-style sides include biscuits smothered in sausage gravy ($3.95), corned-beef hash ($2.75), and scrapple ($2.75).
