Good place for a quick bite

My wife and I were walking around Georgetown and while I was checking out the Exorcist stairs, she found this little gem for lunch. She had the "Chicken Madness" chicken sub (which she really adored) and I had the "Taste of NY" pastrami sub for $7.50 each. Both come with a small bag of chips and a... read more

If you are from Georgetown, than you will know about this spot, because once you taste this sub, you will literally drop Morton's for the evening and come here to eat this beauty. It's an insiders' spot. You really don't get it until you come here, you grab that sub (was made the same way when I was in college... More

Had to lave a plug for Wisemiller's. Quaint little grocery store in the heart of Georgetown. GREAT philly cheese sandwiches, made fresh on the grill. Saw me through many all-nighters!

Wisey's as it is commonly referred to is a Georgetown institution . Said to have been frequented by one of GU's most famous students, Former President Bill Clinton, the market and takeout near GU is a real find. My son's two favorite sandwiches there are the burger madness and the chicken madness in that order. Chicken madness is said to... More

Half convenience/grocery store and half sandwich shop, this Georgetown staple is famous for their Chicken Madness sandwich: hot peppers, grilled chicken, and cheese on a hoagie with spices that make it a must-try. Tip: when you're in the area, call ahead to place your order. It will be ready within 10-20 minutes.

I attended Georgetown University and at one time lived at Wisey's, er... across the street from Wisey's. The deli sits effectively on campus across the street from a set of dorms and classroom buildings in a small building on a one way street. In 4 years at school, I successfully ate through the entire menu at least trice and was... More

Include this place for lunch when at GU or Mass at Holy Trinity Church...it's a great place. Grill was covered w. Chicken Breasts when we were there. Chicken Sandwiches/ Subs were great. Kind of a traffic jam at counter to order/ pick up. Bad at counter to pay also. Might slow you down - but food is worth the wait.... More

Good, greasy sandwiches - great when you need comfort food to go. No place to sit down and eat, and the set up is crowded and a little confusing for first-time visitors. The service behind the counter isn't particularly friendly, but they make a mean grilled cheese w/ tomato slices.

As Bill Clinton's former hangout, Wisey's lives up to its reputation. The service is quick, the sandwiches are delicious and unique. Recommend the Chicken Madness

Any trip back to Georgetown must include a trip to Wisemiller's for a Chicken Madness. Chicken, Bacon, Cheese, Spices, Garlic... can't go wrong! Plus you get a free bag of Utz, a pickle and a can of soda. Don't miss this place the next time you are in the area. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.
