Silver diner is a local chain which, at first glance, looks like a soulless national one. Yet these retro-looking diners offer a seasonal menu featuring local ingredients and a host of healthful choices.

Unrated (5/5/2016) — Cheap Eats 2016
"… Silver Diner isn’t your average diner. The drinks list includes a number of local beers and wines, the quality of ingredients has spiked dramatically with the commitment in recent years to more local produce and meat, and the kitchens work with a surprisingly light hand. This is far from the greasy spoon you might have presumed…. Yes, service can drag, and the ten-page menu has more than a few potholes…, but then you take a chance on an unexpectedly juicy bison burger with pesto, goat cheese, and red peppers and all (well, almost all) is forgiven. …" See Full Review…»

Tony's NY Pizza in Fairfax is a typical neighborhood pizza joint. And, while there are a number of entrees to choose from, NY pizza by the slice ($2.65 - $3.50) is the way to go. Note, while it has a sibling named "Pizza NY Margherita" in Gainesville, it appears to be unrelated to the similarly-named Tony's New York Pizza in Bristow, Manassas, and Haymarket.

"I haven't been to the Gainesville (or Manassas) Tony's, but the Fairfax location was very good (by the slice) even after Gainesville opened."
