Amphora's Diner Deluxe Restaurant Review

: Family-owned and -operated, both Amphora restaurants appeal to a family clientele, who love the casual atmosphere, super-friendly staff and substantial meals. The Herndon location resembles a shiny, old-fashioned diner, but don’t expect to find the usual diner fare. American, Greek and Italian offerings include everything from soup to nuts---spaghetti, broiled or fried seafood, gyro platters drizzled with yogurt and hamburgers. Its on-the-premises bakery assures fresh breads, towering cakes and luscious pies. Don’t miss the lemon meringue pie, available twenty-four hours a day. Check out the nonstop breakfast menu featuring everything from Belgian waffles to sugar-cured ham steaks.
