    Hubby and I stopped for a lunch. Great summer slow burger, well seasoned and juicy! I love the kind of fries too!
  • DC Dining Adventures
    Don't think twice, go with the monster Slowburger: 1/2lb. Allen Brothers Angus beef, Gruyere, onion rings, butter lettuce, pickle relish and aioli.
  • DC Dining Adventures
    Start your meal off right with the Southern Fry: hushpuppies, buttermilk fried Draper Valley chicken, & spicy honey butter.

    Dim and red, drinking in Slow Bar is like drinking in a dark room. Of course, natural light wouldn't hurt anything, but few people leave here looking good enough for that.
