    It's a nice, small Trader Joe's but be warned: on the weekends the check-out lines are insanely long. As in, wraps through the entire store long.

    Lines are intimidating but move fast and are worth it for sweet, sweet cookie butter.

    Organic produce at great prices

    Marguerite Pridgen · December 16, 2014

    Always crowded.

    The line situation can get pretty unpredictable, but TJs is your personal adult playground for the 10 minutes before closing time on a Friday night. I'm not proud I know this.

    Sandra Rubinchik · August 31, 2014
  • Steve M.

    The line takes up more of the store than the shoppers do.

    Steve Minard · August 28, 2014
  • David D.

    Not the best fresh meat, fish, veggies, or fruit. But, the absolute tastiest frozen food section! Very reasonable prices on wine and beer selections.

    David Derrick · August 21, 2014
  • Matt S.

    Tasty items: frozen New York cheesecake, cinnamon coffee cake, frozen coconut shrimp

    Trader Joe's is a great place to shop for your raw vegan meals. Wide variety of all natural guacamole and nut pastes. Great resource while on the FULL BODY CLEANSE.

    Get the tofu edamame nuggets. I became a fan after I tried a sample.

    Casey Cavanagh · March 14, 2014
  • Jennifer G.

    The line wraps around the entire store and takes 35 minutes to get through. And they are constantly out of EVERYTHING. Go to another Trader Joes if you can.

    Horrendously long lines on Sunday evenings so buyer beware. Yes they do work hard and keep all the registers open but it sucks when it takes 5 min to find what I need and 30 go check out :-/

    Tyrone White · January 5, 2014
  • Elliott C.

    Get your sample first then shop, you might get a new idea of what u want to eat. It's also never good to shop hungry

    Elliott Collins · December 4, 2013

    Try the Magical Mystery bag of beer. You never know what you'll get and it's a great way to try new beers.

    Marty · October 18, 2013

    The soups are back!!! I can finally eat Lentil Grains soup every day for lunch :)

    Free cookies and coffee. Organic food is cheaper than whole food, free parking and nice stuff.

    I love Trader Joes. I go to GWU so I usually stop in after class to pick up a few groceries. The best part of it all it that they have a parking garage. Awesome!

    Kiara H. · May 20, 2013
  • John S.

    Is the best grocery store in DC

    John Sanchez · May 3, 2013
  • Scott F.

    Shop the center aisles first, then get in line. Get your produce, dairy, alcohol, etc. as the line snakes around and you won't even notice the wait. Don't be fooled by the line length.

    Scott Frazier · March 12, 2013
  • Rick A.

    Luv the beer selection

    Rick A · March 11, 2013

    excellent choice of wines and sparkling in town

    Walburga A Marder · February 19, 2013

    Try "La Finca" wines, good taste for good value!

    Philippe E. Alvarez-Thomen · January 24, 2013

    Bring a friend and have him or her wait in line while you shop.

    The berries are pretty good right now especially the blackberries

    Edwin Guevara · November 20, 2012
  • Josh P.

    The Cabernet Sauvignon is the best Two Buck Chuck by a good measure. It's definitely worth picking up for an extra table wine on hand.

    Josh Powell · November 1, 2012
  • Edwin G.

    Don't come! Lol jk come its just super busy.

    Edwin Guevara · October 14, 2012

    Oh yes... the line DOES wrap around the ENTIRE store at times... but fear not... it goes fast. Don't forget your reusable bags! (:

    Love this place! Love the chocolate covered berries, dark chocolate pistachios. Everything is good! Of course, two buck chuck!! ;-)

    I find the lines are quickest right before closing. Yes, the lines are ALWAYS long. Yes, they are often quick, but NO, I still hate long lines none the less.

    Lance Fiasco · March 10, 2012
  • Stephanie C.

    Just left. So not worth the line that's snaking to the doorway.

    Stephanie C · March 3, 2012
  • Sarah J.

    Cute guys in hoodies shop here. The line moves fast, even if it wraps around the store. Lots of tasty cheese.
