Best Take Out or Delivery in Arlington

I'll throw out my 2 favorites: Pie Tanza and Bangkok 54 (both take out). Any other recommendations would be really appreciated! We like all types of food.
Food Factory's curry and bread; they've updated the interior and offer more choices now.
Anything Vietnamese: A vat of soup from Pho 75 or vermicelli with grilled pork from Four Sisters or any of its neighbors. The sandwiches from Banh Mi DC on 50 (closer to Falls Church) are cheap and tasty.
Thai Square (takeout/delivery)
Ravi Kabob (takeout)
Nam Viet (takeout)
Lebanese Taverna (takeout)
El Pollo Rico (takeout)
Super Pollo (takeout)
Bangkok 54 also delivers
I'd pick Ravi Kabob over Food Factory for carry-out since they're fairly close to one another
for the record Banh Mi DC sandwhich (Route 50 and Graham Rd)IS in Falls Church, as is Four Sisters/Eden Center
PieTanza is a good choice for carry-out since they are so kid-friendly the atmosphere approaches that of Chuck E Cheese, best to get in and out quick
forgot to mention, it's now harder to eat in at Taqueria El Charrito Caminante, they've removed the wooden counters and most of the bar stools that used to flank the main counter, now there's room for one person or two very close friends to eat on the edges of the main counter, 4 bar stools remain.
Yeah yeah, geography wasn't a strong suit. I suppose since I live in Arlington but still drive to those places for takeout regularly that I consider them close to home! Especially Four Sisters...Banh Mi is a bit of a haul.
And I must admit I was disappointed they removed the stools from Taqueria El Charrito Caminante. Was a nice place to grab a quick lunch.
Pizza takeout: Italian Store. Also great for their takeout sandwiches. Beware the lines.
Frankly, I've never been impressed by the Italian Store's sandwiches or pizza--I think it's all overrated and overpriced (especially the pizza!). You can get twice the amount of pizza that's twice as good at infinite places in NYC. Good 'za in this area? Mamma Lucia (not the chain) and Pomodorro's (both in Fairfax).
