The pun is intended. In this area, throughout NOVA, the Great American company owns a conglomerate of reasonably priced locations, good food, and attentive servers. I have been coming to the Carlyle off and on for years, and it never fails to leave me happy and well fed upon I leave.
The Bakery, which services all of the local restaurants, is adjacent to Carlyle. You will be pressed to find fresher products, and it's called Best Buns!
Other local restaurants which are owned by the same corporation include Mike's in Springfield, Sweetwater in Merrifield and Centreville, Silverado in Annandale, Artie's in Fairfax, Coastal Flats,etc. not too much of a fan of Ozzie's in Fairfax, though.
Good happy hour locations, all! You can call ahead for seating as they don't take reservations unless for a large party (I think, not sure).
