Van Dorn Diner is an oldie AND a goodie. Weโ€™ve eaten at this family-owned, 1950s-style diner in Alexandria, Virginia and it is an experience that truly takes you back to the 50s. This diner has renewed its license for Wine & Beer On Premises (and off! Get your breakfast ToGo with a couple of beers!). Thank you for using ABC Consulting for all of you licensing needs. If you have questions of what is allowed and disallowed, what kind of a license you need or what to do if you are giving a violation, letโ€™s talk! Call: 800.785.0161
Recently relocated to Alexandria. Checked out Van Dorn Diner this morning for the first time. Western Omelet, Grits, & Corned Beef Hash taste Absolutely Amazingโ€ผโ€ผ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹ (Didn't come all together like this. I'm country... LOL)
***CONTEST ALERT*** Just had lunch in Landmark at the fabulous Van Dorn Diner! Iโ€™ll be raffling a $25 gift card, so watch the video to see how you can enter!
Stopped by to say hello, sorry we missed you. Had the Greek salad with grilled chicken and it was amazing. Hope to catch up soon with you guys. Cheers! Maria Salome Zakaria and Monica Zakaria.
Do you post any weekend "specials"?
Good food and great service
