Unique Selection of Delicious Burgers, Fun Staff, Great for Lunch or Late Night

Visited this place quite a few times and have to say the burgers are among the best in the city for good variety and quality with value for dollar. Its a fun place both for summer weekend afternoon drinking sessions and late night amusement.

As we walked across the mall, my wife said "do you know any little places we can get some food and beer'? Having been to DC many times, I'm surprised that I didn't know a better place within walking distance. We decided to adventure. We were losing patience when suddenly we found this gem. Two floors of seating but the... More

A great little pub in foggy bottom that serves great food and yummy pints. The bartender is friendly and the service is super fast. Stop in and have a pint when you are in the area. Kid friendly during the day to boot!

This is a bar and I was looking for a bar when I asked my concierge for a working man's type place to grab a couple beers while my girlfriend was at a business dinner. We were at the Fairmont so of course he sends me to a white table cloth joint with 30 foot ceilings and a mirror behind... More

We stayed across the road and after walking around trying to find a bar we spotted this narrow, red faced little building. A former house I imagine this narrow bar has seating at the front, bar stools around the bar and a couple of bar tables next to the wall, plus a mezzanine floor (sounds posh but wait to you... More

One of my all time favorite bars in DC. Small in size but makes up for it in personality. Friendly bartenders that offer good service is hard to find in this area, thats why when I'm in town this is thefirst place I stop. The sliders are a must!

it's an awesome hole in the wall, dive bar with a decent beer selection and the bartender was friendly as well as the patrons - I'll go back here if I am in the area again.

Found this place by accident while tooling around Washington. Great atmosphere. Great beer. Food was ok. Selection was mainly burgers. Lots of selection. Kid friendly. The food was served on paper plates so be prepared for a real "dive bar". My wifes burger was not cooked properly and after eating it she was sick that night so be prepared. Other... More

Found this dive bar while my parents and I were waiting for dinner at Founding Farmers. It is a little hole in the wall bar away from all the DC hype. It was just my parents and I and we were looking for some drinks. The owner was our bartender and he was extremely nice. I am NOT a beer... More
