We came in just close to lunch...about 1pm but the place wasn't packed since it's kind of away from a lot of places. I ordered the burger with cheese and bacon, and my friend had the grilled chicken salad.
The food was mixed up...my burger went to another table and then they realized it was for me, and the same thing happened to the grilled chicken salad...HUH? My burger was pretty good..it was cooked rare as ordered with tasty cheese and bacon. Nothing really outstanding, but cooked to order although I had to ask for my glass of wine as the person forgot it. WARNING..if you're a wine lover, skip the wine...it ain't worth it. The fries were pretty good.
Overall, I'd go back because the burger was done right and tasted pretty good...I will say I'd go to Foster's before I'd go to Five Guys...those Five Guys will NOT cook you anything less than medium!.
Worth the trip....ask for better service if you must, but try the place!

I enjoyed lunch at Foster's on my recent trip to Alexandria. We were staying nearby, so we just wanted something decent before walking around the old part of the City.

All of the entrees are $5 - $8, standard sports bar and grill fare. Burger. Chicken. Wings. I had the burger, which was just fine at $6, but nothing to go out of the way for. The french fries were okay.

My experience at Fosters was "Just Average." With all the seemingly good to great places nearby, I doubt I would return.

We eat here at least 3 times a month. Love the wings, burgers, grilled cheese and shakes. Fries a yummy extra. Inside and outside (covered) seating. Come with coworkers for happy hour, dinner with friends or family, and even had a surprise bday party. Staff is awesome. Only thing I would change is for it to stay open later.
