We grabbed supper here after a long day of travel and walking through D.C. The lamb gyros were out of a package, but the veggies were nice and fresh and the pita was light and fluffy. My child enjoyed his cheeseburger. There was a bit of a wait, because it was late, and there was only one person on the... More

Always enjoy a quick lunch here. Burgers are good and fries as well. Co-workers have had various sandwiches and seem to like them as well.

We were at a conference at the Westin Hotel in Crystal City and discovered the best place for breakfast and lunch at great value. You can have fine (very expensive) at Morton's Steakhouse. You can have fast food at Dunkin' Donuts, But Philadelphia Mike's is the best deal in the Washington, D.C. area. It is a Mom & Pop operation.... More

My hotel wanted to charge me $8 for a fruit cup. I'm from the south and I need protein on a budget! Philadelphia Mike's delivered perfectly. Thank you for a great breakfast and thanks for not breaking my wallet.

After a day of sightseeing, we were glad to see that Philadelphia Mike's was still open. It's located on the underground "shops level" as you leave the Metro at Crystal City. Since it's at 1668 Crystal Square Arcade, it's on the right hand side. They offer a good selection of sandwiches and burgers. They have plenty of seating - there's... More

We arrived here after coming into BWI airport, taking an Amtrak train, then the metro to get to our hotel. We were hungry and tired. When we spotted the Crystal City shops as we came off the metro we decided to take a look for a quick bite somewhere. Well, we wandered into Philadelphia Mike's and were glad we did!... More

We have eaten at Philadelphia Mike's for at least the past 10yrs while on our Washington Trip and it is always very special. The food is made to order and is prepared with care. The owner works the counter himself and takes pride in putting out a good product. Always clean and very affordably priced. A great place to eat... More

We stopped here for a late breakfast, my granddaughter ordered pancakes and loved them, I ordered an egg, sausage, and cheese sandwich it was okay. The service is methodical and is not nice or unfriendly. the food took a while to prepare and they seemed a little unorganized. The meal suited our purpose and if time warrants would look for...

OK food - reasonably fast - nothing special here. I ate there once, probably won't be back as there really is no compelling reason to return.
