We’re fans of this local diner chain, with branches in the Maryland and Virginia suburbs. In addition to classics you’ll find plenty of items made with health and dietary issues in mind (i.e. huevos rancheros loaded with veggies, egg white power breakfasts). That said, the chicken tenders are hard to beat.

Flaky, homemade biscuits are Mason Dixie’s signature, and you’ll find them stuffed with eggs and breakfast meats or fried chicken.
