My Alexandria Dive. ack's Place is a fantastic place for a cheap, tasty sandwich near the Alexandria coastline. It is quickly becoming my favorite $10 and under option in the Old Town area. This time, I went with the brisket sandwich au jus. Although the brisket could be of higher quality, it meshed well with the au jus and made for a perfect not too light-not too filling sandwich. For those who want a greasier experience, may I suggest any of their cheesesteaks? Jack's is probably best known for being a breakfast spot, but I haven't had the ability to try it out for that yet. This place is CASH ONLY so make sure you bring something other than the plastic.
Good place for cheap breakfast sandwiches.

I grabbed this spot as I heard it was a great little whole in the wall for locals.
For breakfast I ordered on the menu what is called "DeLox Accommodations" For $6.95, you get a thick slab of cream chease, with a slice of onion, tomato and smoked salmon on your choice of bagel. This sandwich was OUTSTANDING.
As I was there enjoying my breakfast everytime someone came in the door they were greeted with a warm hello and called by their name. So you can tell this is definately a local hang out spot with a friendly atmosphere. Across from me sat an architect who was drawing their latest layout on paper while enjoying a huge thick blueberry pancake.
Around the counter at bar stools sat several of the retired locals discussing the previous nights football game. Adorning the walls are sports memorbelia, along with family and friends.
Don't expect to show up here and get a seat. There are about 4 tables to sit at, and the counter area with bar stools fills up very quickly. I lucked out and got there just before people started showing up and was lucky enough to get a table. This restaurant sits just a few blocks off the water and if this restaurant is packed, just get it to go and head down to the water for a beautiful view.
