“Best Burger”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

Timothy Dean Burger is a gourmet destination worth the drive from within the DMV (District Maryland Virginia area) or a detour for travelers on I-95. Located a few steps from an excellent Five Guys, TDB is in a different class. Burgers are not cheap, but have much more meat than Five Guys and are very flavorful. I like the Blue Cheese Burger, but there are others, or you can choose your own toppings. The onion rings are indescribably good - by far the best I have ever had. The onions melt in your mouth. Also available are pizza by the slice and beer. Located in the BLVD at Capitol Center mall near the Magic Johnson theater.

“Really a 3.5 Star Rating for the Burgers and Fries”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

As a Top Chef fan I've enjoyed the fact that a handful of contestants have set up shop in the DC Metro area.I stopped here after a movie and was pleasantly surprised to see them hand-pattying the burgers in the open kitchen. They cooked my burger to order at the right temperature of medium (i was glad they asked AND listened- some places just ask and bring a well-done patty) and the fries were fresh. My fave was the spicy mayo they gave as a fry dipping sauce.

In general, it's a step up from Five Guys in terms of topping options (but they cover the range for those who like a classic burger to the foodies who like a mess of options) and they have a handful of beers handy. They seem to be going for a quasi sports-bar vibe with the tvs, but i think it really depends on the crowd at any given moment. I didn't try the pizza but i'm sure another reviewer can weigh in on that.

In the end, it's a nice option if you want a fast, quality burger w/o the fast food regret. Space is nice enough but not one of those spots where you're there for hours (a la chains like Chili's). If you see an online coupon deal, go for it!

“Upscale Burgers”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

I had never heard of this place before Groupon offered a deal, so I took the deal to see what the place is like. They sell slightly-more-than half pound burgers, pizza, and some alcoholic beverages. The cashier was enthusiastic and asked if this was our first visit, then went through the options on the menu. The food came out quickly, and it was really good. The place has some seating either in booths are individual tables and they have a few TVs around. Well worth the visit!
