Best Breakfast and Lunch

We have been here twice in the last year, in April for breakfast and in December for lunch. Both times they were very busy but the wait for a table was not long. Food excellent, and the price was not bad. We will go again!

The food was your typical diner fare but it is the atmosphere and the stories shared by Susan our waitress that made this place special.

Despite fires and fame Tune Inn stays the same. It is a small, old-school diner that was completely gutted by a fire a few years ago but they meticulously re-created the original. Not gonna lie, Tune Inn benefited from the cleaning but the food and staff are still the same, a old comfortable place to land.

I lived on Capital Hill from 1976-1982. This was one of maybe four local hangouts for young professionals on fixed income. The place does not look like it has changed much. This is most a burger, fry, and beer hangout. If you want to get a feel for where the locals go, come here. This place probably goes back 70... More

Was one of my favorite spots to hang when I lived in DC, finally got back here again after a few years being away from this place.....it hasn't changed one bit and that is a good thing! Love that they have all day breakfast and the cheese sticks are to die for. My kids loved the burgers. Portion sizes were... More

Crusty locals chow down with pols at lunch. By night, it's a canned-beer drinkin' hipster hangout. Either way, it's not fancy. Burgers are decent, as are the sweet potato fries. Ask one of your surly servers to make sure they get done extra crispy.

We asked around and sought out the "Tune" because of "Triple-D" noteriety(...and recommendations!). We weren't disappointed by the food, Tune-Burger and everything served was delicious. Good selection of beers too! They are right near the capital, so after taking that tour = it's a great place to regroup. Not a lot of seating, so be prepared and come for some... More

I have been exploring all the bars and diners in the Capitol Hill area, trying out different places for breakfast. I found this place, with all the history on the walls and I felt welcomed and at home when I visited for a nice classic breakfast of eggs, corned beef hash, and grits. No frills, no pretense. Just a friendly... More
