Located less than two miles from a Ferrari (!) dealership, Bob's is a classic diner that should be in Prince William County and not close to these one percenters who don't care as much about saving money as we do. B-[ I had the "Chorizo Con Huevos" which is scrambled eggs and Mexican sausage to us Gringos. It was delicious,... More

We're in town visiting family and stepped out as four adults and two kids for breakfast. At 10 am this place was packed on a Saturday! But our wait was about 15 minutes. They put us at a long table that already had two adults finishing their meals, sitting at the end. That was a little weird for me, but... More

Perfect corned beef hash and eggs. It is crowded for a reason. Quick service and great food! My favorite part is that they serve breakfast all day long!

Joe's is located in a small shopping area. The food and service are great and has a real friendly and warm atmosphere. You may have two or three servers handling your service as they do not assign wait staff to certain tables. That is strange, but seems to work really well. Breakfast served throughout the day.

Easy access from major roads near Dulles Airport. Nice diverse menus--traditional American breakfast and lunch specialties. Owner/manager met us the door; despite a long line we were seated quickly. Service was prompt, efficent and very friendly. The food arrived quickly; and tasted great--notably fresh and crisp vegetables . We had a pleasant meal at a budget price.

Heard about this place from a friend and let me tell you, in no time I was converted into a regular customer. It's a small place so you may have to wait but it will be worth it. The owner is very personable and knows many of the regulars by name. He constantly works the room and is one of... More

Service is great, but the wait is long. Typical breakfast menu. A lot of this has to do with the fact that there are so few restaurants in Sterling that serve breakfast. Also not a large space. I'd go again.

We visited for Sunday breakfast, and there was a 15 minute line. Once we were seated, service was fast. Our waitress didn't write anything down, but got the whole family's order mostly correct - brought one diner the wrong type of potatoes. The eggs were cooked correctly, the bacon was crisp, and even the "incorrect" potatoes were excellent. Things that... More

If you go at a peak time during the weekend breakfast/brunch hours, be prepared to wait for a bit. My breakfast (French toast) was delicious. Their prices are a little higher than I would expect for breakfast foods, but not to a crazy extent. Service was quick, efficient and friendly.

Ever walk into a place and feel the pride immediately? Ever get greeted right away by someone who's pride shows through like the sun? We felt that way today when my mom and I decided to try it out for breakfast. We knew right away it would be good and it was. The service was fast and friendly and the... More
