We had Monday Special Sliders and they were great

We went on a Monday for lunch. We were basically the only ones in the place, as it was around 3pm by the time we arrived. We had the hamburger sliders and chicken wings--they were great. I would definitely go again for both these dishes...the price was right...I think $5 for the 6 wings, and... read more

I met a friend, one who is super particular about where she eats and this passed place passed her rigorous test. My turkey burger was delicious, moist, flavorful, and has a great spicy mayo. The fries were perfect. And my friend seemed to like the grilled salmon over her salad. All good! Super great waiter, too.

I joined three of my friends for dinner. When the server brought the check, we noticed that he added 20% service charge. I asked him why. he said he was not aware and blamed it on the first server who took our orders. The bill including the added tip was around 280 dollars. The server was defensive and somehow rude....

Well, i wish i could find good words to describe my experience... Staff is NOT friendly. I ordered a margarita without salt...and my husband was watching the bartender make my drink..Well, the bartender did put salt on the rim of the glass! Realizing what he did he decided to clear the rim with His Finger! Disgusting! I understand it's alcohol... More

After happy hour they remove the bar stools and you have no where to sit at the bar. I went to the bar and noticed two seats. One seat was empty and when my friend decided to sit there one of the bartenders said that seat was taken by someone with a birthday. The person was no where insight and... More

We went to this place to watch the Ronda Rousey fight.... The food and drinks were great and the service was friendly! After the fight the place turned into a nite club, which was cool!

I first visited this location for lunch with a colleague. I enjoyed it then, but you can more fully enjoy the place after work. On Tuesday the drink special is half off a bottle of wine. We ordered Shiraz. Yiu must order the avocado dip appetizer. It was so good. And, the Margherita pizza was the perfect size for two.... More

We ate here on our first night in DC. The restaurant/bar looks very much like a disco/nightclub. We were there early in the evening with the after work happy hour crowd and it was less than half full and the noise level was very tolerable. We shared a salad and a pizza, both of which were tasty.

We had some really great food here late in the evening, very moderately priced. Service was great, very attentive, but didn't stand over you.

We were looking for the best place to celebrate a friends welcome home from deployment and we chose Barcode. We went on a Saturday night which is the International dance party night. There was a Colombian Party going on so we figured it would be a perfect night and there were free shots of a special drink all night. We... More
