Have you ever gone to a restaurant where everyone else seems to be a regular? The manager and wait staff greet each customer by name and appear to know all about them and each member of their party. The line is long and the tables full, but everyone is cheerful and waiting patiently to eat. Have you been to a place like that recently?
After a home inspection at a building in McLean, my co-worker, Carol Boochever, asked me if I’d like to go to lunch. She said she knew a great Greek place so I followed her around the corner to McLean Family Restaurant. Boy, was I in for a treat.
When we arrived a bit after 1:00 in the afternoon there was a line that extended out the double doors and onto the sidewalk. It was a cold day so everyone wanted to squeeze in, but no one was pushing. Everyone was looking forward to their meal and these people came in all ages. Young and old, families with children, extended families with members in wheel chairs, a seeing eye dog. It seemed like the place to be.
When it was our turn to be seated, we were greeted by a friendly waitress who brought us menus and ordered our drinks. I took a look around and every table was full and there was a full bar in the corner. I couldn’t believe I hadn’t been there before.
The menu included a full diner selection. There were so many good items it was hard for me to decide. Carol ordered the Gyro Platter and I ended up ordering the Chicken Souvlaki Platter which both came with fried. All I can say is YUM.
My food was so good, and the service was fantastic. I would go back anytime. Want to go? Give me a call and I’ll meet you there. McLean Family Restaurant is located at 321 Chain Bridge Rd, McLean, VA 22101.
