Florida Avenue Grill

★★★★☆
The Florida Avenue Grill is no ordinary greasy spoon. It's been paying homage to diner food, Southern style, since 1944.

Florida Grill is a southern-style greasy spoon in a residential neighborhood in NW Washington. The food's not fancy or fat-free, but I love to bring adventurous friends here for a slice of old-time Washingtonia. The building is a bit run down, but on Sunday after church, and most mornings during the week, this place is filled with loyal African American customers. The Grill calls itself one of the oldest black-owned businesses in DC. It has yet to be discovered by tourists, and tends to be far less racially integrated than similar popular institutions in the black community like Ben's Chili Bowl. That said, I've never felt unwelcome when I bring non-black friends. The food is typical diner-fare: bacon and eggs, fried chicken, black-eyed peas and greens.

PROS: lots of character, cheap prices
CONS: tums may be required!
