Arlington-Little Known Places

Does anyone have any recs for hole in the walls, little known places of any kind of food in Arlington?
My boyfriend and I see quite a few, but don't know what's good and isn't.

  1. If you like banh mi (Vietnamese sandwiches) Ba Le is pretty good.

        On Browning St. in between Pioneer and Arkansas...across a pizza place....I have to agree, Ba Le banh mi are all good...

    1. For great, fresh sandwiches (open for lunch only) try Boo Boo's. It is in a strip center at the corner of Bowen and Park Row. Talk about a hole in the wall but its all fresh ingredients, very healthy and tasty. Al's hamburgers is another good one. People drive by and never notice it and yet they have outstanding old fashion burgers. Its on 157 just south of I-30 on the right in the same center as Tuesday Morning.

      1. Thanks for these recs! I will try these out for sure. :)

          Shalisah - Al's is NORTH of I-30 - sorry - I live further north and just said the wrong thing - sorry! Now you have to remember - these are OLD Fashion burgers, thin meat not some gourmet place but boy - are they good!

            I think I've had Al's, and it was good. I'm going to go again.
            I think Arlington has a pretty good selection of yummy food, it's just weeding out the good from the bad process.

        2. We love Prespa's Pasta and Pizza. They have two locations - one on Arkansas Lane (I this may be considered Dalworthington Gardens) and one on Sublett (at 287). Really great cheese pizza, fab lobster ravioli and awesome calzones.

          We also really enjoy Corky's Pizza on Little Rd just south of 1-20. They specialze in old world Italian style wood fired brick oven pizzas. Try one of the Margherita Pizza's (we espically like the Blanca).

            Yes, Prespa's is great! I live close to the DWG one, and they are wonderful people! Great food and atmosphere.
            I haven't tried Corky's, but that sounds yummy! I think it's close to a little bar I go to. Will have to try it. Thanks!

          2. If you like Vietnamese and you like bun bo hue you might want to try Song Huong. Its a small restaurant located where Pho Palace is on Collins and Pioneer. That stuff hits the spot all the time.
