We were exploring the shops near the Chrystal City METRO stop. For lunch we ordered their spicy Italian sandwich, french fries and chicken gumbo. We had a little difficulty communicating our lunch order, but clearly understood that the water option in the drink dispenser, "didn't work". It made me wonder how they wash/clean their equipment if "water doesn't work". Our lunch was ok. There was a manager looking guy standing around, not helping, or asking if we needed anything, just standing around. I don't recall anyone thanking us for making a purchase. No water...no recommend.

One of the better Philly steaks in the Wash DC area. Hadn't been in a long timeBut had two big Philly steaks with all the fixings to go, well wrapped up and bagged to take home on the VRE. Everyone loved them, we each had a half and it was perfect. Lots of other offerings but really, it's the cheese steak here

Everything was fresh, food is really great portion at a great price, breakfast, lunch and early dinner. I must say if more people knew about this place e it would be packed. If you stay at the Marriotts / Gateway ...best ace for food!

The portions are quite decent and the food is as expected, cooked to order and substantial. Cheese steaks, burgers, sandwiches, fries and shakes. The drink selection is pleasantly broad, with bottled and canned drinks in addition to the fountain sodas. The prices are reasonable, especially given the location.

The atmosphere is basic and bare bones. You get what you pay for and no more. A cup for ice with your bottled drink costs extra. Soda fountain refills cost extra.Service is decent and quick, accurate but not friendly.

Good choice for a quick bite or grab and go if you are in the area.
