The Lost Dog Cafe has way too many items on their menu which makes it overwhelming. The staff that we dealt with didn't seem to know what their job was or how to handle customers. They seemed to be overwhelmed by helping out two customers...More

The white pizza #2 is so delicious! It has been our favorite for a long time. We both felt Lost Dog McLean lost its way for a while, but the quality has returned.

There is more than one. The newest is in Dunn Loring a couple of blocks from the Metro station and one is on the Tysons side of McLean on Anderson Drive.

Description
The Lost Dog Café has been serving up great pizza, hot sandwiches and beer from around the world in Arlington's Westover neighborhood since 1985. Well known as a place to get great food at a great price, the café also serves up a hefty slice of compassion with each pizza. Café owners Ross Underwood and Pam McAlwee have been rescuing stray dogs and cats almost as long as they have been in business and the effort continues. Since 2001, Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation has saved the lives of over 18,000 dogs and cats, helping them connect with loving families and forever homes. In May 2009, long time employees of the original Westover location, Jim and Mike Barnes, Wes Clough and Michael Danner opened additional locations South Arlington, Virginia in May 2009, Mclean, Virginia in January 2011 and Dunn Loring, Virginia in the summer of 2012. The latest addition to the Lost Dog Café franchise family is Alexandria, Virginia (opened in December 2015), owned and operated by franchise owner Pam McAlwee's cousin Matt Sisk, also a past employee at the original Westover location.
