    Cool joint with a variety of burger options-- beef, of course, but also add wild boar, bison & elk to the mix. If you've got the loot, peep the Big Pimpin which features Kobe & foie gras for $23

    Burgers but fancier. I seriously love this place. The service is awesome, drinks amaze balls, and get you a buffalo burger and always get the sweet potato fries.

    Best burger I've ever had in my life. On top of that, great service and a great dining experience. Three best dishes: Pig in a Cow Suit, Freebird, and Learn to fly.

    We had the rib appetizer and an amazing burger with sweet potato fries. A great bar with really nice staff. The best burger I had in D.C.

    Try the Buffalo Stomp - Juicy, filling burger. Bacon wrapped bison is incredible and just melts in your mouth. #incredibleburger #filling (via @Foodspotting)

    serves up a variety patties, from venison and bison to salmon and portobello. There are even plans to add tuna and veggie burgers in the near future. PS: 20+ beers on tap, just so you know. Read more

    Burgers were pretty good & made w/ free range beef, a big bonus! Grilled jalapeños & poblanos had no heat, though. Would def eat here again. Weekend brunch menu looked solid, too, but we got burgers.

    Great, great burger. Go for the Big Pimpin. Well worth it for a little taste of foie gras.

    The bison burger is superb and they also have a pretty rare boar burger that you just have to try if you didn't.

    Crazy busy even at a weird lunch hour (after two) and if the smell of frying burgers thick in the air is not your thing ... pass. It's not a place I'll return.

    Стильный интерьер. Можно смотреть спортивные трансляции. Кроме того, вкусно кормят, есть неплохое барное меню. Правда, обслуживание нестабильное, оставляет желать лучшего. В целом, обычное место
