Cheap take out in Arlington VA
I'm new to the Arlington/Balston/Clarendon area and have found very little options for cheap and tasty take out. Any recommendations?
El Charrito Caminante on Washington Blvd for amazing Salvadoran/Mexican
Italian Store on Lee Highway for great authentic subs and pizza
Cafe Tirolo in Ballston for Austrian/Italian
The chicken places, El Pollo Rico and I believe Super Pollo (behind Ballston Mall).
ECC as mentioned, to be sure. Up near Arrowwine is La Union, which I finally made it to, with super veggie enchiladas, as mentioned initially by Steve, who you should track in order to find all good cheap eats.
I have issues with Italian Store due to their lack of attentiveness to service and that I am mainly out in the Herndon area with the much superior (imo) The Deli, but if you go, just go in a very non peak time.
There's also a good tacqueria on Columbia Pike in the parking lot of the CVS - get the chorizo tacos.
Attilla's is good down there, and very reasonably priced is Thai Square - the best thai in the whole area to many on this board.
You're only a few miles from Eden Center - tons of inexpensive Vietnamese options.
Minh's (Vietnamese) is in Clarendon.
Crisp and Juicy (Peruvian chicken, in the same shopping center as Arrowine).
There's a Moby Dick in Clarendon, although I can't vouch for that location.
El Charrito Caminante
Pizza from Pizza Roma in Ballston
El Pollo Rico
hot subs from Mario's
cold subs from the Italian Store
sandwiches form Earl's Sandwiches
SInce the original post is from 2006, I think its refering to Delhi Club, which is actually quite solid for takeout. On another note the lunch buffet there is supposed to be a unreal deal. $8.95 on weekdays, and 11.95 on weekends (with an extended selection).
