This restaurant had a fire some years ago but was restored more or less to its old funky self with stuffed deer heads on the wall. Very casual, very welcoming. People from the neighborhood come to watch sports on tv and cheer for local team. Food is simple but mostly good.

Loved the fried mac and cheese, burgers, fried shrooms and server. We usually don't eat fried food, but we went all out here!! Advice: 'Go' before you go. Nuff said.

Not a huge place, kind of a hole in the wall where you probably wouldn't stop unless you're a local or have heard about it from Guy's DDD. The food is fantastically comforting - great quality, just greasy enough, and delicious. We went as a family on a Sunday late morning / early afternoon. My son had chocolate chip pancakes,... More

Discovered Tune Inn after a visit to the Folger Library. Great place to pop in for lunch, coffee or a beer. Long, narrow restaurant with bar up front and booths further on. Eclectic menu serving soups, salads, burgers and plate lunches. I had the meatloaf plate. Very tasty and a big hunk of meatloaf! Served with mashed potatoes and a... More

I tried the Tony's deep fried hamburger and it was very good. Definitely an original. The history, friendly staff and decor make this a great place to try.

This was what we imagined an American diner type bar to be and we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner here. The out side is unpreposing - a few tables and a large man sitting by the door! - and when you enter it is straight to the bar area but there are a number of tables and booths a little further...

A hobby that my family have is trying to find a restaurant that had been featured on Diners Drive-ins and Dives. So on our first trip to DC thought we would give this one a shot. Guy has never steered us wrong before (until now). Mediocre bar food at best. Don't waste your time.

My husband found the Tune Inn last summer when he was in town. I'm so happy I finally got to eat here. What a great hidden gem near the Capitol. The service, food and drinks were wonderful and totally affordable. Can't wait to go back!

There are a ton of options for good food in downtown DC, but not as many that are good affordable. My daughter and I ended up there late on evening. It was very casual, we sat ourselves. The waitress is super friendly and efficient. The chili was great! The fish and chips was great! People were just hanging out and... More

Just a little over a block from the Capitol Hill Hotel so I bought some food to go - chicken fingers and fries for my 14 yr old (delicious) and buffalo salad for me (spicy delicious). Service was good but a bit slow to retrieve my order but I wasn't in a rush - no worries! I would eat here... More
