Great atmosphere

My husband and I ate here a few weeks ago and it was great! Our waitress was super nice and it was a perfect lunch date. I got the black bean burger and it was probably the worst I've tasted but the fried green beans made up for it. My husbands meal was wonderful though! We will definitely be back.

I ate here during a business lunch in February. The menu has a great variety. I had the teleras chicken sandwich and it was delicious. Other colleagues raved about the pizza. Wonderful atmosphere and food.

Great for a burger, hot dog, pizza, etc! Food is delicious (chicken tenders especially) plus they recently added more taps- yum beer!

My friends and I go to different eatery @ month. October was Fork in the Alley and it was perfect. Lovely restaurant. Ate at table on patio and we had a great time. The food and waitress was excellent and loved the congenial atmosphere. We shall return.

It was nice to sit outside in October. I ordered a burrito which came out lukewarm. The server seemed rushed when she waited on us, as she had a large party she was preoccupied with. I would say the food was mediocre. Probably won't go back.

I was in town for 1 night and roamed around the city. I was told about this place and it did not disappoint. We did have one mishap with the waitress forgetting part of my order but getting it for free made up for it. I suggest a custom made pizza or the DC dog which was delicious. I cannot... More

The Tuscan Cheese bread was wonderful! You could tell that all of the tomatoes and onions on the burgers were really fresh too!

This place was fantastic! Delicious pizza and friendly staff. My hubby and I loved how it was tucked in between a convenience store and a cupcake shop. (Do try this cupcake shop!) Easy to miss but definitely take the time to find this place and stop in for a bit to eat!

We stopped over for dinner on a Sunday night and sat in the outdoor patio. Our group of five ordered an assortment of sandwiches, salads, and pizza; the pizza was the most delicious choice, the other items were not too exciting. Our waitress was friendly, gave great suggestions, and was attentive. We'll be back for more pizza!

My fiancé and I were delighted with this restaurant. We enjoyed eating outside on the patio surrounded by little white lights on a beautiful summer evening. The food was good, service good and atmosphere very romantic.
