    The Tune Inn Nachos are great for a quick snack. They are also LOADED with pulled pork and onions, so use that information wisely.

    Roast beef sandwich is the best sandwich I've ever had. Don't forget the pickle spears - perfect! Find a bench for a nap afterwards.

    The standard for Capitol Hill mainstays. Cheap drinks, friendly staff and good food. Best juke box in DC.

    Haven't tried the food yet because we just ordered, but just wanted to add a note about the service: bartender/server noticed we had a sleeping baby and turned down the music for us!

    Great old fashion hole in the wall. Food is great, service is characteristically no frills, yet good.

    Whilst certainly a great dive with a penchant for deep frying everything, the burger meat is tasteless. Having been to most burger joints in the city, Tune is sub par comparatively speaking.

    The walls are covered with fascinating paraphernalia ( deer ass is just above the tiny bathrooms). Burgers are yummy and BIG!

    Though it is not on the menu, you can get Gravy Cheese fries if you ask, and put your conscience and the look from the server behind you. Fat-tastic
