This 24-hour family-run diner never closes—not for blizzards, not for holidays, not for anything. So, Northern Virginia residents can always rely on Amphora Restaurant in Vienna or Amphora Diner Deluxe in Herndon for a hot meal, any day of the week. There are over 350 items to choose from, so it’ll take you a while to get through the textbook-like menu, which is broken up into nine categories, with tabs to help diners navigate through it: beverages, breakfast, appetizers, soup and salad, sandwiches, burgers, lighter side, grand plates, desserts and a kids menu. The Amphora Group was founded by Greek immigrants Louis Cholakis and George Bilidas, so expect plenty of Greek staples, like spanakopita and moussaka. The patriarchs opened the Vienna location in 1977 and now their children run the show. Maria Cholakis says some of the most popular offerings today are the gyros, the (seven) eggs Benedict, the meat loaf and the French toast, made with fresh brioche from the Amphora Bakery.
