ABOUT US

Van Dorn Diner is a family-owned, 1950s-style diner. We offer an exquisite array of breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert options that will take you back to the 50s.

And so will our ambience.

Van Dorn has a gorgeous spherical counter right in front of the grill. So you can grab a seat, chat with the friendly waitstaff and watch your food being made — all to the sounds of Elvis, The Beatles and more hit artists from our favorite era.

Recently relocated to Alexandria. Checked out Van Dorn Diner this morning for the first time. Western Omelet, Grits, & Corned Beef Hash taste Absolutely Amazing‼‼😋😋 (Didn't come all together like this. I'm country... LOL)
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
