    Not impressed. The buns were very cold and my fries weren't cooked all the way through.

    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...

    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!

    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.

    Skip the Southwestern Burger. It's a very spicy sloppy joe - not a solid patty.
  • Washingtonian Magazine
    Washingtonian MagazineOctober 21, 2011
    The big, juicy patties are crafted from dry-aged beef and set on puffy brioche buns. We like them dressed with cheddar, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, and grilled onions.

    Keep it simple and enjoy a bacon cheeseburger. The asparagus fries are to die for, add rosemary and garlic to them and get a double order -- you'll thank yourself later.

    Cold fries cooked in month-old tasting oil, and a mediocre burger with carmolized red onions (really? Come on!). At $10? *Never* going back to this place. Ever.
