    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.

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

    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.

    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...

    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

    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.

    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

    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.

    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!

    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

    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.
