Best dives?

OK, let's rack our brains- what are the best dives in the region? Ben's Chilli Bowl comes to mind as does Quarterdeck for crabs. What do you all have?

    1. Speaking of dives, any news on the new Stoney's on P Street?

      1. re: monkeyrotica

        Yeah! I didn't know they were relocating. Though the old location was great AND across the street from a client I visit regularly.

      2. I recommend Jay's Saloon in Clarendon. The food is decent and cheap, beer available on tap, and a clientele that tends to define the term "dive bar."

        Here is the washingtonpost.com review: http://www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/wp-...

        1. The Post Pub on L Street.

          1. There is this really tasty mexican fast food. On 14th Street. Next to the liquor store (around N, I beleive). The food is good and very cheap. It's called 'something papuseria'?
