Capital City Diner Opens Today

We got ourselves a bona fide diner in town! Capital City Diner officially opened for business this morning at 1050 Bladensburg Rd. NE.

During the weekend's soft opening, the diner dished out 80 dozen eggs, more than 600 pancakes and over 100 burgers, according to its Facebook page. Capital City is serving breakfast all day, along with other expected diner fare like chicken fried steak, meatloaf, pies and milkshakes. Today's special of corned beef hash, eggs and toast will set you back only $5.50.

Since last May, Young & Hungry's Tim Carman has chronicled the diner's journey through DC bureaucracy. Turned out, it wasn't so easy to pluck a 1940s diner car from upstate New York and move it onto an old used car lot in DC.

But they made it. For photos of the shiny diner car, check out Young & Hungry, DCist and We Love DC.
