“Great DC local place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

If you ask where do normal Dupont Circle workers eat, Well Dressed Burrito is it. Their price is surprisingly affordable for the area. I love the daily special where you can get a steak salad or grill salmon for $8. They are generous with their quantity as well. I highly recommend this place if you are looking for a hole in the wall but great food place.

“Quantity over Quality”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2012

Be prepared to eat or bring back at least a lb of food from this place. They do indeeed give you a lot of food and if you do manage to eat it all in one sitting, be prepared to feel a sludgehammer of food coma for the remainder of your work day. ALWAYS check their website for any daily specials but I find that ordering off the main menu tends to fare better for taste as they seem to just make the daily special from whatever they have a surplus of.

They have only 2-3 tables off to a room opening to the waiting area/ cashier/ menu taker. It's pretty much one very large room with a counter in most of it and a sectioned off "dining area" with a few tables. You'll have a lot of people just milling about in the space of the "lobby" since there is nowhere else to wait but at least you do not wait long. I would still call in the order ahead though. They also have wierd hours, and are really only open for lunch.

This place is located in an alleyway. If you find the corner of Chipotle, then look for the Palm or Thai place next to it. In the alley next to the Thai place, there will be a sign of a penguin. Follow that sign until you see the a big black door with a penguin logo above it. Through those doors is the Well Dressed Burrito. And watchout for cars/vans/ trucks that go through that alley. If you decide to cut across the alley to the other street with your food, remember the stench of the dumpster as you pass it by in the alley may put you off your appetite.
