    Recommend! Very tasty food. I had the BBQ Blue Cheese Burger and Shaved Brussel Sprouts with Bacon. Great location where you can see the White House from the sidewalk in front of the restaurant.

    The Saturday brunch is incredible. I enjoyed the French Toast, tater tots, western Benedict and bacon.the manager Scott is so handsome and the chef Thomas is a cutie on duty.

    Heard a Gregorian choir sing when I bit into their slider. Ended up eating 4 of them @ a networking event. They kept running out, lol. Some kinda special farm raised Montana beef. Truly amazing.

    Ask for Gigi! She's the best server in DC I've come across. Attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. She's can give you the low down on gluten free items, too!

    BBQ Blue Burger is delicious. So are the Brussel sprouts with bacon. Affordable and consistent. Nice ambiance. Delivery available.

    The Shrimp and Grits are great. The fries are perfect and the portions are big. The mini burgers are just enough and include fries.

    The appeal of P.J.’s has been its democracy -- an average Joe’s ability to knock back drinks with the rich and famous. We’ll see how that plays in D.C., the land of the Secret Service. Read more
