Went here for a quick breakfast to go. They have a bunch of great breakfast sandwiches. They were very accommodating since I don't eat eggs and wanted to replace it with something else. The service was very friendly. Would go back.

We came here for lunch twice during our 2.5 days in DC. Granted it was right next to our hotel so the most convenient place just after arrival and just before departure. Nonetheless the food was exceptional, and extremely cheap.

Just two blocks from the U.S. Capitol Building is a walk-in, sit at the counter Mexican Restaurant called Burrito Brothers. I have to say that I was shocked that the food there is better than most even in California. It seems so out of place right there on Capitol Hill, but the congressional staffers have to eat somewhere, right???? I... More

I only had time to go here once, but I liked it a lot. I got a big breakfast burrito for a good price (mine was around $7) which kept me full for hours. The staff were friendly and helpful. It's not a fancy place, but it's a great budget option which has real (good) food for a reasonable price.

We had burritos that had great flavor, and the staff was very friendly. Chips were stale though. Salsa was not good, but I am a Texan, and have high expectations when salsa is involved.

Stumbled onto this place around lunch time just before we were getting ready to go tour The Library of Congress. Good stuff, fast and fresh, friend folks working there! The only thing that we were upset about is that we didn't find this place sooner. Check it out, you will be happy you did.

We had Soft Beef Tacos and Chicken Burritos. Take out. Four times in a 7 day period! No Mexican "funny tummy" so that was good eating for travellers. Close to Capitol Hill Hotel, useful considering it rained at lot.

We only tried the burritos, which were good. Were they life changing? Not really. But, they were a good size, priced very reasonably for the area, and we were in and out in about 40 minutes. It worked for us.
