America's Favorite Athlete-Owned Restaurants Slideshow

Slide 1 of 24
Joe Theismann's (Alexandria, Va.)

Many dishes at Joe Theismann's sound pretty run-of-the-mill — wedge salad, seared Ahi tuna, baked Brie — but you have to be doing something right to have the staying power this former Redskins' quarterback's restaurant does since it opened 35 years ago. Of greatest interest perhaps is the "steakhouse-style pork," described as "dry-bbq rubbed," a customer favorite for 30 years.
