Carryouts are the lifeblood of DC, and Tony’s Place in Anacostia is an example of one that's done well. It’s a straightforward order-at-the-counter situation with no tables, so be prepared to take your food to go. You’ll find staples like all-day breakfast, soul food, half-smokes, and pupusas. The pancake platter, which runs about $8, is our favorite dish here because they’re hot, fluffy, and not too sweet. Get them with the pork sausage patty to round out the meal.
