My mom first brought me here during the Watergate mess. Even as a 9 year old, I enjoyed the irony of (and devoured) the Spiro Burger. This week I made it back with my son and was happily amazed that NOTHING ( save new building/Same layout.. And prices) has changed. Spiro.. Disgraced.. Still on the menu. We got Ham and... More

I have been coming here since I was a kid. The portions are huge on those double Deckers. Get a double decker and I bet you can't finish it. Another favorite is the cheese fries. The service is always fast and good. They still have the old cash register. They have been in there new location for a while now.... More

This establishment has been in business for many years. They serve a variety of food, whether you want breakfast, lunch or dinner. The portions are big. Their double decker sandwiches are big enough for two people to share. It is always crowded, so there is usually a wait for seating.
