    The veggie burger is worth forgoing the 🐮 version for.

    Good food when you're having a bad day. Love the fries & a shake or root beer float. Huge servings.

    The Wellington! That's all you need! The mushrooms are SO good!

    Get the table by the window so you can people watch. The veggie burger is unique. Doesn't taste like a burger at all. It's rice based and sweet but very good.

    Amy Marie · August 23, 2014

    They toast and butter the bun really well. Fries a bit salty, bit otherwise, a great meal.

    Great atmosphere.. Love the music selection. Super friendly staff. Loved my burger with blue cheese! And don't forget to get some Parmesan fries! Delish!

    Tried "The Legend"; it lived up to its name.

    Good burgers, especially the Greek and Wellington, but mediocre fries. Save some money and calories and just order a burger. It's certainly enough for a healthy-sized meal.

    So annoyed I just are here- my room service burger is better...and it costs the same!

    Not sure if it's changed. Wellington burger didn't have topped onions and weird mojo sauce. When I complained the guy said it was exactly as should be. this place used to be better...

    They have the best Shakes in DC metro area !!!

    One of the most flavorful turkey burgers I've ever tasted. Looking forward to trying the Wellington next time!

    One of the best burger places. Not at all over priced for what you're getting...

    YUMMY! We love these guys. A worthy mention on this list. Can't go wrong with them.

    Get the rosemary, roasted garlic fries ! They are delicious.

    Do NOT waste your $10 on the veggie burger here - it is AWFUL! I should have asked for my money back.

    Best veggie burger in town. Made w/a touch of molasses.

    The Southwest might be one of best burgers in DC.

  • Steve G.

    The Irish burger with the corned beef on top was awesome. Onion rings were excellent and french fries too. I will definitely make it a point to stop here next time I'm in DC

    Steve G · April 5, 2013
  • Eric B.

    No need to reiterate other points about the food -- it's great. But the service and decor is worth mentioning, as they're both top notch.

    Eric Breese · March 11, 2013

    Burgers with "mojo sauce" and sweet potato fries are worth the wait. Also try the Greek, a lamb burger with tzatziki sauce and feta. Read more

    Daily lunch special is the way to go. Burger, fries, and drink for a little under 10 bucks and it'll fill you up.

    The Wellington with an over easy egg & bacon = #TheTruth

    The sliders beat everything else here.

    Best, most scrumptious burger in DC (sorry Shake Shack) hands down (...and start eating that burger right away). Loved the soda fountain. It could use a little better ventilation with an open kitchen.

    Kat · December 24, 2012
  • M. G. S.

    The Wellington is the best imaginable, even without the bun. The asparagus is great too. Fix the ventilation-my eyes and throat are burning in here!

    Mehhh...prices could be better but it's closer than black and orange so I make it a mission at least twice a week

    Awesome sliders. Turkey burger is pre made with gorgonzola in it.

    Mary Wolff · August 18, 2012
  • Dave G.

    Food poisoning. They served me a raw burger and founder, Mark Bucher, responded with rude request. Be VERY careful dining here and with so many other options within minutes, you can do MUCH better. Read more

    Hot damn! I don't know what they do to those mushrooms but the Wellington is simply to die for!

    M. G. Stella · August 1, 2012
  • M. G. S.

    The Wellington is ridiculously good! What do they do to those mushrooms?!

    M. G. Stella · August 1, 2012

    Very disappointed. Burger was dry and salty. Service was downright RUDE ! Soda machine was empty. Food avg. Prices way too high for value.

    Shaun Dakin · July 1, 2012

    Best burger in DC, hands down.

    Ryan O · June 30, 2012

    The turkey burger with pickles, tomato and lettuce is amazing!

    Andrew Falsetti · June 21, 2012
  • Jenn

    You must get sweet potato fries, and definitely add blue cheese to that plain ole burger. So delish.

    Jenn · June 3, 2012
  • Kelly M.

    The turkey burger is a meal in itself. The lobster roll is all huge chunks of claw meat. Delicious!

    "I don't care that it's a chain, the sliders here are awesome and they have over 50 sodas to choose from.."- Carlos, SFS'14

    Nice, juicy, man burger. Just a bit too much bread for my taste. Although, this cooked to order, and prime cut of aged meat makes this burger a winner. Skip the caramelized onions, get the mojo sauce.

    al viciedo · April 29, 2012
  • Jared C.

    The best burger joint in DC. Great burgers, great fries, AWESOME soda fountain.

    fairly decent, though pricey...
