We were excited to try this place and we arrived about 5:20pm with our two kids (ages 10 and 13). Upon reaching the front door, we were told that no kids are allowed after 5pm. 5PM?! I could see 8 or 9, but 5??? Disappointed.

Service was ok but a little on the slow side. Food was straightforward but nothing to write home about. I had a Cobb Salad ... pretty dull. My friend had a burger -- it is served on a rectangular bun not a round bun. The basement bar looks fun especially for the stodgy K Street corridor surroundings, but who wants to eat in a dark cavern on a sunny, nice day? I think the bar might be fun otherwise there are many better places for lunch in the area.

A budget oasis in DC. Decent 3.00 margaritas. Free tacos on Wednesdays. Just what you want from a dive bar. No more. No less.

the place had a nice location - around the corner from our hotel and was actually open on Sunday evening. The wait staff was okay - not great and the food was a little greasy.
