Definitely bad FOR you, but so so good!

Based on reviews while researching for lunch spots for our trip to DC and from our times watching Diners, Drive Ins and Dives, we located this little spot and decided to try it out. We both had the deep fried burger with fries. Took a little longer than expected to get the food (it was about 1:15... read more

We came in for breakfast with high hopes....and they were more or less dashed. No problems with the gritty dive bar feeling, even at 10am, but it seemed more dirty and dingy than cool. But it seemed popular and I like the idea that not every place needs to be all sparkly and trendy. I ordered the steak and eggs... More

Tune Inn is the place to go when you want fun foods and are NOT dieting...lol. The chili cheese fries are so good. Try that with a patty melt and a brew! They even serve breakfast all day. This is one of my favorite dives on Capitol Hill.

Food was good tasting; under staffed; we had a long wait for our entrees and never were served our appitizer; the cooks were smoking in the kitchen while preparing food. Can anyone say health code violation? The bar tender did not know what a roy rogers was. When he served it to my under age son, we quickly found out... More

After reading the reviews and spending $300 for dinner the previous night we decided to try the Tune Inn. When we arrived it appeared that there was no place to sit but you must squeeze by the crowded bar to see that there are tables in the back. We then asked for recommendations from the waitress and ordered several orders... More

We stopped in here after an appointment close by. I had the tune in burger which was of the most greasy, sloppy burgers i have ever had. Now i am a big fan of both but this was over the top, the bun couldn`t even handle it and was too soaked to handle. I might of sent it back but... More

We came to Tune Inn after we discovered that the original restaurant we planned on going to was closed on Sundays. Tune Inn was featured on Food Network's Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. It is a hole in the wall that had the friendliest staff we have encountered so far in DC! The Rueben was absolutely amazing! The beer battered hamburger... More

Everything we tried from the menu was a bland, battered something deep fried into a greasy, tasteless mess. And from the looks of it, the rest of the menu held true to that description as well. If you like beer battered everything, then this may be the place for you. Now, don't get me wrong I love a good tasty... More

We visited DC last year and part of the fun was trying to find a local dive bar/restaurant to eat at. We attempted to go during the lunch hour but found this tiny place to be packed full of men and women in suits from Capital Hill. We figured this is a good sign so we came back at a... More

This bar had very good food and nice, interesting decor. I would go here again if I were on capitol hill, but would not make a special trip there. Like many eateries in DC, it is located in an older, narrow building. Seating can be crowded, mainly due to the narrow building. Service was not super-friendly, but was ok. Food... More
