El Rinconcito Cafe: what do users think?


Food Enthusiast: Great food, reasonable prices, and large portions! The restaurant is small but cozy and very clean. The staff are very kind and welcoming. I will definitely come back and try their other dishes. One of the best Salvadorian food restaurants I have been to in DC!

Asif Rehmani: Food is very tasty. I had the beef chimichanga and I thought it was pretty good. Also the pricing is very reasonable. The platter for chimichanga was $11. This place is in the heart of downtown DC so it's hard to get a better deal than that. I was there at the time that they were going to close and most of the clientele that time are people at the bar. I noticed many people coming and going with their takeout orders and those sitting at the bar. All 100% Mexican it seemed. Good friendly crowd. However don't expect to hold a conversation with anyone unless you speak Spanish yourself 🙂

Elizabeth Tate: This place has the best horchata and the best enchiladas I have ever had. Every bite of this meal has bursts of flavor! The refried beans were 💯, and the salad on the side with the sour cream and guacamole wasn’t just that, it had a bit of salad dressing on it too! Ever been part of the clean plate club? This place will make you a part of it so fast you will want to come back for more 🤩

Michael “Newmie” Newman: #Update 5/24/2022 — pupusas de queso para llevar! Que Rica Comida! Y no tan caro! 🤠 The best pupusas in the NW DC quadrant! This eponymously named “Little Corner” restaurant sits just enough patrons, including a few bar stools, to make a simple weekend lunch feel like a Fiesta con Familia! With a flair for Comida Latina, especially from El Salvador 🇸🇻, there is plenty of La Vida Feliz to meet everyone’s particular “el disfrute” wish. Pupusas, tacos al carbon, fajitas, nachos… the standard fare expected and well-glamored… and thusly prepared finely by a hidden kitchen that certainly possesses the culinary culture deeply ingrained. Mi Contessa had two chicken enchiladas (“rojas”) which she found to be quite delicious and served warm, not too hot. With the small salad (“pico de gallo”) and an illuminating beans & rice combo on the platter, her hope for a blessed Mother’s Day meal was realized. The can of ginger ale was a surprisingly pricey addition to an otherwise very, very good bargain lunch celebration at this hidden hacienda. For me, my enchiladas were filled with frijoles (currently necessity requires eating less meats, though proteins are crucially important). The tortillas themselves were the best part, quite refined and baked evenly. Nicely evened “queso” melted on top, with a bit less smattering of the salsa than i was hoping for. Still, quite flavorful, even with a slight disappointment over the refried beans wrapped up. (Not so sure, but perhaps not homemade but from a can.) Overall the meal was quite what one will want when seeking a simple meal alone or small group desiring traditional Central American cuisine. However, the happy vibe of this hard to find place must not be underestimated, and the two mesera gentlemen really enjoy doing the serving to please — a service not found easily as well during our Covidmess times. *** ⚽️ on the televisions also! … Barca o Real Madrid??? You decide, Caballero!*** 🤠✌️✌🏽

Shaughnessy Miller: I hadn't had pupusas in years and was craving them on my visit to DC. This hole-in-the-wall did not disappoint. I ordered the 2 pupusas, 1 tamal de elote combinación and the yuka frita. The food came out quickly and was super rica! Everyone was very friendly, and the music also added buen ambiente. Definitely stop in!

Logan Gore: Yum! Yum! Yum! It’s hard to find good and authentic pupusas that aren’t too greasy but this place has them! Sooooo good! I ordered two chicken and two pork pupusas. They are huge! I didn’t need four haha! And a side of fried plantains! Small hole in the wall very much worth visiting!!

Cory Laws: My kind of place. My wife finds us interesting eateries. It was late and we needed lunch. This was highly rated, within 2 blocks of our hotel, and we didn't even need to cross a street. It was almost empty when we arrived, but there was a steady flow of take out customers. Then eat-ins. I didn't think the nachos would be sufficient, but boy was I wrong. Well done, generous, fresh, and a Negra Modelo for each of us. The Salvadoran seafood soup delivered to the next table was both great looking and smelling. The customer took his time to enjoy it all. I'd love a return visit to try a "real" dinner, not just a huge appetizer.

Elliott McClelland: Highly recommended! This neighborhood find was a great surprise. Authentic Salvadoran food with friendly staff. The pupusas were great, and I loved the chicharrones. If you are in town near the convention center, give this place a try!

Gaelle Claude: Nobody does Salvadoran food like they do at El Riconcito Cafe. I first found out about this place from my boyfriend and his coworker who had been there once before. They raved about how great the food was but I honestly underestimated how good it was until I tried it. It’s a nice, small cozy restaurant with the authentic vibes. I have been there a couple of time by now but the first time I ordered chicken enchiladas which came with a side of rice and beans, guacamole and sour cream — 9/10. They have great portions for fairly low prices. I also tried their horchata with a shot of Hennessy; it was pretty good. The next time I went I got a chicken chimichanga which was also a hit. Their customer service is on point. This place is a must try! Overall the experience is 10/10

Melissa Davis: This place is phenomenal !!! the food is very delicious, the coffee and the natural juices tasted very good, the owner and the waitresses are very friendly and we found the place to be cozy and very clean.

Bub and Pop's: what do users think?


Larry “Big Schlim” Mcleod: This place comes highly recommended when looking for a hoagie in DC. So as you know, I’m on a hunt for the tastiest cheesesteak/steak n cheese (Native Washingtonian way of saying it) in the area. I’m late but I’m ready…Let’s go see what they’re hittin on!! . Where I am: @bubandpops . Location Reviewed: 1815 M St., N.W. Washington D.C. . Menu Includes: Craft Hoagies; Fried Chicken Cutlet Hoagie, a Chicken & Tuna Salad Hoagie, Cheesesteaks, Beef Brisket, Roast Turkey, Italian, Chicken or Eggplant Parm, a4 Cheese Hoagie, Salads, Soups, Desserts, Craft Pickles, Beer, & Wine. .

Customer Service: Attentive & Welcoming . Online Navigation: Easy, 3rd party Delivery . Parking: Metered & Highly Enforced. . Recommendations: Get that Italian Hoagie. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️=STAMP ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️=DELICIOUS ⭐️⭐️⭐️=DECENT ⭐️⭐️=PASS ⭐️=NAH #Bigschlimsreviews

Heriberto Gonzalez (Heri): Holy poo! This sandwich spot was legit! My wife remembered seeing Guy Fieri show this joint on Triple D. We got the Italian and the Roast Pork with gremolada...the first was good but that pork sammich was next level! Every bite left me wanting more! The folks at Bub and Pops are deserving of high praise...great food and they were super fast too!

Simon H: I absolutely adore this place. Great sandwiches. The half size plus chips is definitely enough! Full size is enough for 2 people. I usually get the Italian, and although the butter on it is probably controversial, I really REALLY like it. I also love their cheese steak and I've had the eggplant Parm as well and it's quite good. They prefer cash so bring it if you can, but they will accept credit card as well.

Jonathan Taylor: More than just a sandwich shop, this place is a top notch DC favorite diner even with Philly Cheese Steaks on the menu. I was delighted with the fresh ingredients, real flavors and generous portions to say that this is a real gem. If you have to wait, it's because everyone else wants some too. Bonus tip: closed on Monday BUT open on Saturdays! If you are downtown, then get some of the goodness.

Paul G: One of the worst customer service places in the country. Staff is openly hostile. First experience in 2018 was a driver with their logo on their car crossing a red light and almost hitting pedestrians and then flicking everyone off. Today was I’m guessing the grandma yelling “f you” to me when I let my umbrella get their carpet wet. I’ve actually had their food once and it’s some of the most overpriced garbage that only DC would be able to sustain. They don’t put themselves in a neighborhood part of town because locals would eat them alive. They feast off of tourists and old diners drive in and dives promotions. Additionally their online business practices are outlandish - they first off charge in store prices of over $20 for a sandwich, but the markup they allow for their delivery partners or pickup partners are over 100%. They have control over that but don’t care. They may have some tasty sandwiches in comparison to what is in the area (frankly I think they’re too dry) - but it’s not worth the patronage. Hoping they close and are replaced by business people who care about their local community, not try to exploit it. Get ready for the crybaby owner response below. Also check out their health code violations online. Gross

Jackie Ndebeka: I needed a cheesesteak hoagie like home (Philly), they made me a cheesesteak like home. The family who run Bub and Pops are super friendly, run an amazing hoagie joint, and make some damn delicious food. Worth every penny.

Tan Sav: Ordered takeout from here. I got the cheesesteak with mushrooms. It was definitely delicious. A little pricey, but delicious.

Eric Gor: Great restaurant, delicious food. Got the Hebrew hammer and chips. The big sandwich is 2.5 pounds (40 ounces), for those unsure of the size. The house-made chips were delicious but maybe slightly salty. Didn't stop me from devouring the whole bag though! Expect lines!

Stedman Paris: The customer service isn't the greatest plus the cooks don't wear gloves anymore. The shrimp Po Boy is gone! They always ask for cash. This place makes you feel like you are in the 1950's. There is more to a business than just a good product. It would help if they focused more on the total customer experience. Did I mention gloves?

All Good Home Inc David Pugh: One of the better steak subs in the dmv. Provalone was the star of the show for my Cheesesteak this morning, the roll did the splits on me on the 2nd half but was lite and had a great skin texture, was very good, steak needed a little seasoning but was cut perfect overall great experience super friendly staff definitely will be coming back again.

Jimmy T's Place: what do users think?


Evelyn Acevedo Ruiz: Jimmy T’s! Let’s say coming here is like going to your great grandmas to have breakfast… it is a family own business, so you will see the mother cooking your breakfast, father at the register and the sons will serve your food. The place is very antique, and I’d say need a bit of maintenance, but if you like trying traditional places, you have to come, waiting for your food is going to be long time, but is worth the wait to have that warm familiar atmosphere.

Aaron Phillips: Solid enough. Not expensive which is nice. Cool spot honestly, it's old and small and tight with a ton of character inside and out. Service is a bit slow and the food is just normal eggs, bacon, etc nothing earth shattering...but reliable.

Alejandro “ZTXH” Zamora Jr.: This little place is a great find. The food is great, has a like home feeling, and feels like a small step into how things were a while back. Friendly service, great tasting food and amazing atmosphere. This is a Cash only establishment

Rachel Cipkins: The food was so good!! Can’t go wrong with a $3 grilled cheese at 7am. Make sure you have cash

Jimmy Thren: My name is also Jimmy T, which is why we went to check it out. After two years of the pandemic, this was the community we’ve been missing so much. Kind, thoughtful and fun staff. I love how sarcastic everyone was with each other. It’s a cozy, fill you up, delicious breakfast stop. If you are a craving a place that makes you feel like your apart of the family, this is it.

Chris S: Incredible greasy spoon diner that is both completely out of place in and perfectly belonging to the neighborhood. Amidst all the money and worldly power of Capitol Hill it's an unpretentious gem that serves good food fast and reminds you that the capital belongs to all of us.

Robert Stankiewicz: Great food, great people, great atmosphere. My new go to breakfast place when I'm in DC!

Mad Mike0082: Absolutely the best breakfast place I’ve found in DC. Super affordable , cash only , food is perfect. Not for the fancy crowd for the real down home folks. Will be back every morning.

Amanda Pedraza: Best diner experience I’ve ever had. Food was amazing service was even better ! 10/10 would recommend! The woman behind the counter is god sent !

Lucien Anderson: Listen, Googlers. I know occasionally the "waiters" can be sassy, or that the waffles may not remind you of the Belgiàn Wafflé you paid 30$ for in Georgetown. It's true- but nobody's perfect!! If you are having a bad day, a trip to Jimmy T's is like a warm hug from the one you miss the most. Heart-warming coffee, crispy bacon, perfect eggs, BOMB WAFFLES, and the queen of them all, the one they call the MATERNITY. I also recommend the cheeseburger special, but only if you're really trynna ball out. I promise you will not be disappointed

Surfside Taco Stand: what do users think?


C F: Pretty good burritos. Fresh and tasty. I enjoyed my burrito and would try other ones. I deduct 1 star because the price is higher than expected for 1 normal sized burrito and the lettuce/salad was a bit confusing. Also the chairs and tables were pretty dirty when we were there. But overall great sauces and friendly service.

N T-K: Amazing food! The price isn't too bad either. The line is usually long but it doesn't take long for your order to be ready. I had the street corn (overpriced for just 2), the Makinac burrito, Punta cana tacos and the Martinique burrito!

J. W.: Came here for the first time last night and I was very impressed. Good food, quick service and 24 hours… can’t beat that. As you can see the food is seasoned and portioned great. Definitely can see myself returning. That shrimp burrito and street corn is definitely a game changing combo for the nightlife eating.

Shelbie Ammirati: Delicious! Perfect midday lunch for us as we visited DC and rode scooters around town. Perfect amount of food and the food was so good! I got the Nevis and husband got the Rio, both were great!

Jasmin Hollywood: I like this place. I have been wanting to come here for months and finally made the cause on a Taco Tuesday. I guess I should have tried/ordered something different. I ordered the Malibu tacos and the order was on point the service/courteous kind employees... Now, the Tacos were super healthy, filling, bland and semi gross. Lol. Like I mentioned that I likely should have ordered something different perhaps the crispy chicken Taco or something. I didn't completely write this place off. I want to return in hopes of a better taco.

Chris Atkins: The chicken was seasoned really well and the rice was light and fluffy. It didn't take long to get my order amd it's open 24 hours. This place is definitely worth stopping by for tacos and quesadillas.

Petr Tojsl: Delicious tacos! I got the north grill taco, which consisted of well seasoned mahi-mahi, tasty Chipotle sour cream dressing, and pickled vegetables like lettuce and onion. Along with that, came a delicious yellow lime rice. After my meal, The cashier kindly explained to me how they make their tacos, so that I can replicate the recipe at home. This place is slightly pricey, but definitely worth the price in a big city like DC. Also, they have a fine range of tasty hot sauces. Finally, they’re very quick! I got my taco in under five minutes!

Anas Souid: The best Mexican food I had in the US so far; everything was extremely fresh and the ingredients were clearly top quality. Food preparation time is also pretty fast.

Josh Stein: $15+ tax for this? Bora bora burrito Bland, small portion - stick with Chipotle or District Taco Guac is very chunky and also bland - ironically there may be more calories in the chips and guac than this $15 burrito Second photo is the chips that were left after we finished the “guac”. You all would be able to save on food cost and provide decent portions if you put something else in your guacamole aside from 1/4 chunks of avocado…

Antonio Pena: Great taste good, service is very good, awesome tacos, highly recommended if you are at the Wharf in DC

Kevin commodore sr: Awesome Employees everyone has an awesome attitude and the food is fresh and great tasting! The place was clean and smelled like fresh pizza! Would recommend everyone that comes into the area to try this location!!!

Frederick E Stidam Jr: Very good service at this location. Friendly professional staff. Ordered 3 pizzas in which all made exceptionally well.

Ieasha Jones: Best pizza we’ve had in a long time. Quan and David were so knowledgeable, kind and helpful. It was our first time so we needed a little patience to be added to the mix. The spicy honey topping was the bees knees, pun intended! We were here yesterday and decided to come back today on the way to the airport for one last taste of yum mines before heading back to Atlanta. Thanks for being so hospitable &Pizza at K Street! We will definitely be back!

GCARD: This pizza is so good, small enough to eat on your own and not have to split, as well all the employees were very nice

Cassandra Carter: The facility was extremely clean, service was wonderful. Emma our server was amazing and was very helpful with our order. She created the pizza exactly how I wanted it! The foods delicious 😋

R Oki: Usually no issues once my order wasn't ready when ordering g with Ritual app. The extra fabulous cashier handled it with grace and made sure was happy prior to leaving. My food always tastes fresh and delicious. Tip: Get the american honey on the side and dip or drizzle. Quickly my new favorite and there is always a deal on the &pizza app
Response: Hey R, thanks for the review! We're glad to hear our Tribe members left you with a great experience. See you back next time!

Tamara Lewis: It has been over 2 years since I ate at &Pizza, but I’m glad I decided to go yesterday. The pizza was delicious, the staff was very friendly, but Quan stood out the most. I loved his energy and customer service, he just made the pizza taste better. Great job!

Bogi Yohannes: Thank you for the great and friendly service from Demargeo and David.The pizza is amazing and hope to be back there real soon.I appreciate you.You guys are awesome. Great time again at &pizza.Emma and Trina took great care and made it a work of art.The best pizza is &pizza.Thank you for the great service.

Tanesha: Absolutely amazing service! I went into this location today at 1pm to grab a pizza on my lunch and was greeted with a wonderful smile and great commentary. The service was fast and friendly. I would definitely recommend.

Nihan Cinar: The worst I ever seen and experienced!!! I ordered from their website at 12:42pm and I’ve an email confirmation and text message that my order will be ready between 1:10-1:15 pm. I went there around 1:05pm. They were not aware of the order. And keep saying it will be ready soon. At 1:30pm it wasn’t ready - it was just cheese pizza with no toppings just that simple!! And they are basically lying to you looking at your face!!!! And one of the staff told me I can order from other places???!!!( which really I couldn’t think!! 😀😤😤) very poor management and customer service.. Don’t ever order again !!
Response: Hey there, Nihan. We're sorry you had a bad experience with the shop you visited. Reach out to us at 200-03 and will do our best to make right the situation! 🍕❤️

The Well Dressed Burrito: what do users think?


C F: Sooo good and great prices!! We tried the daily special burrito and it was delicious- plenty of meat, rice and veggies. Some indoor seating and outdoor seating was bonus. How have I only recently learned about this place?? Will definitely be going back!

Austin Graff: Since 1986, locals will tell you to go to a Dupont Circle alley to find a good burrito. 36 years later, it stands true. After going for lunch on a Wednesday, here's my experience: 1) Food: Posted at the entryway in the alley is a long menu of different kinds of burritos, open-face burritos, tacos and other items. Open every day of the week for lunch and dinner, there's always a daily special, making it a more affordable lunch in an expensive neighborhood. I ordered the grilled shrimp taco with mild salsa and all the fillings- lettuce, tomatoes, grilled onions and peppers, etc. It was good, but I wish I had requested rice to fill in the burrito more. With a line, I only had to wait for 10-15 minutes and ordering was easy! 2) Space: It's tucked away in an alley with views of St. Matthews Cathedral. Inside is small, but they make good use of the space. There's a clear area to order and a small dining area that doubles as a waiting area. There's a bookshelf filled with old cookbooks and other items, local art on the walls and a 2014 mural by Bryan King of dancing penguins by the Dupont Circle fountain. 3) Neighborhood: Just south of Dupont Circle there are countless restaurants nearby for the lunch and dinner crowds. Public art, museums and art galleries, there's a lot to do. If you love a good deli, wander a block to Bub and Pop's.

Ismael Alfaro: From being a restauran to be a place of love and appreciation to his food service, adding the right amount of time and preparation to his “platillos”well-known around the area, must be a great team with a high quality of product to offer, no forgetting their delicious “postressillos” else looking to have a dine in, it’s absolutely reasonable looking at that amount of space offer at that place, it’s completely sure it won’t be a problem, since there’s it’s just to much to se around. At the end of your meal or visit, true happiness will show.

Soumeya B.: Wow! Can’t get worse than this.What makes the experience even more painful is the price I paid for really bad food. The chicken tasted old and the berria was too sour and came with a watery consommé. It’s just bad. The rice was bland and the beans watery. I really don’t understand all the 5 star reviews. This is what we ordered: Chimichanga (was not crunchy and was more like a bad burrito), the dos tacos, and the baria.

Sophie Jylan: Definitely try them out. The entrance is in an alley and easy to miss, but when you walk in it’s adorable. I went in a group and we were doing a project where we needed to order food in Spanish. The people there were so nice and accommodating.The food was also really good and a reasonable price for the area.

Tim Kocher: Great shredded beef! Super freindly staff!

Ravi Yelleswarapu (Venkata): Got the chimichanga and loved it. Huge portion sizes and hot sauce was spicy and went well with the food

Chandra Nicholson: Been going to the Well Dressed Burrito for almost 15 years now and it's always great. Been working from home for over 2 years since the pandemic so I've missed it so much since I haven't been downtown. Went into the office a few weeks ago and had to make my way to the Well Dressed Burrito... and let me tell you... IT DID NOT DISAPPOINT! They have extended their days and hours and expanded their menu to offer lots more options. I had the shrimp taco salad and it was AMAZING! The fresh grilled peppers, the shrimp was nice and plump and so scrumptiously flavored. And even the hot salsa gave it that extra "umph" yessss hunny! Can't wait til I'm back in the office in a few weeks I'll be back! Next time I'll take pics.

Genesis Cisneros: Yesterday was our first time at the Well Dressed Burrito and safe to say it will not be our last. The food was delicious and the prices are extremely reasonable considering DC's normal prices. You get quality AND quantity. Giovanni is also so sweet and gives the restaurant and very family loving feel. Definitely brining our family and friends here when they visit!

Amsterdam Falafelshop: what do users think?


Christopher Lew: tl;dr: Subpar falafel bowl, but amazing fries and curry ketchup & long service time for "fast food". Falafel Bowl - 3/5: Falafel was kinda dry, and also drenched in sauce. The pickles and other toppings were not bad, but I couldn't shake the feeling that other established chains just do it better for bigger portions. Fries - 5/5: These steak fries were delicious and perfectly fried and crispy even after my drive home as a takeout order. And I wasn't expecting the ketchup to elevate the fries to a whole new level. I'm glad I took the recommendations to get fries at a falafel shop! I would go back just for the fries. Service - 3/5: Just felt like the cashier didn't want to be there and it was very quiet. They blocked off where the food is assembled due to covid, which is acceptable, but I wish I could see my bowl being assembled and seeing the toppings instead of just hoping they were good enough. Also there was only 1 person in front of me, and it took what felt like 15-20 minutes to complete my order. I was looking for something quicker.

Kevin Shim: Quirky spot with good falafels. I was looking for a light, refreshing meal on a Tuesday night. This place didn’t disappoint. The falafel bowl with everything was good. A bit pricey considering the size of the bowl, but quality over quantity. The fries were a bit meh. It comes with curry ketchup which is an interesting twist. A pleasant surprise. Overall, a good place for a light meal. The interior decor is unique. It’s worth stopping by.

sanaz moein: A bite to remember! I’m a big fan of falafel, and here was just great! Price is reasonable and u have many great choice to add to your falafel with no extra charge. Also it’s located in one of the coolest street of dc occupied with bars, cafe n restaurants.

D Brown: A trip down memory lane to summer days at one of the real deal falafel spots in Amsterdam. The only thing missing is the endless self serve salad and veggie bar.. $7,50 for a regular sandwich with 3 falafels was delicious and worth it. Small dining area with an Amsterdam kind of decor.

Priyanka Dangol: my fav falafel place in the DMV area! it's cheap, quick, and so so tasty! I could eat here every single day and not get tired.

Mischa: Very good falafel and French fries. Very nice staff as well. Nice cozy little place.

Prahalad Pateel: Very very tasty falafel. Lots of vegan and vegetarian options. They offer a lot of toppings and all of them are really really good. The falafels were really crispy on the outside but very soft and tender inside. The service was very fast and the staff really friendly.. We ordered a regular bowl and the portion size was good. Would definitely visit again.

Raghukumar S: Food was great, only problem is seating and parking.

R Raghu: Very good place if you are craving for Mediterranean food. Mostly to go, however there are few seating arrangements outside. Food is delicious. Made upon order. Their falafel tastes delicious and freshly made. Hummus and other toppings are really good. I would come back here when I am in the area again. Their menu is simple and easy to chose from. Kids surely will like fries. Price is decent too..

Ivan Maertens Aramayo: Safe ordering. Delicious menu. ORDER the fries and mayo! Dr Brown sodas, La Croix waters. Love the peach mango kombucha. Seating outside is comfortable and spacious. 3 regular tables and 1 bistro table inside.

Good Stuff Eatery: what do users think?


Abigail Morales: Good burgers in a 2 story space. Order downstairs and take your food upstairs to a sit down dining area. The fries were a bit burnt as if the oil hadn't been changed but were made from real fresh cut potatoes. The burgers themselves were tasty, nice and filling. If you enjoy a giant burger you may want to get two -my teenage brother wanted another- but we were satisfied with just one. The shakes we tried (oreo, toasted marshmallow and malt) were all tasty.

J B: My hesitation about eating here was that the portions would be insanely huge, the food would be greasy, and I'd leave bemoaning what an awful place. I was so wrong! The portions were PERFECT!!!! There wasn't a single bad food item. The onion petals, fries, burger, so darn good. Loved sitting outside to eat. You get that DC feel. Check out it.

Erick M: Burger - pretty decent, fries - pretty bad, milkshake - pretty good. The burger had a lot going for it (had the Obama Burger), it was juicy and the flavors/sauces went well together, but it was really soggy and greasy immediately after it was prepared (ate in); overall pretty decent burger. The fries unfortunately were the worst part. Got the Village fries which adds rosemary and some seasonings. They had no salt on them and were very soggy and underfried, pretty big letdown. The milkshake was actually very good (cookies and cream), nice and thick w/ a good wide straw. If the fries had not been so bad, I'd consider coming back, but the fries are half the experience for me. Wouldn't eat here again (or would ask the fries to be well done).

Elizabeth Dou: The burger is pretty good, a little heavier and greasier than expected. The bun gets kind of soggy with all the toppings. Burger is also on the smaller side. Price range for a burger is greater than $9 depending on your toppings. Fries aren’t crispy and more on the soft/soggy side despite being served hot. There is a place upstairs to eat as well as outside seating. I think Five Guys and Shack Shack are on par with this burger place.

Kn Bn: The worst service I ever had probably, the girl was really not happy to be here. No smile, no hello, no please, no thanks, she didn't even looked at me that was crazy.. Also they forgot our order , so we wait more without any apologize.. The food was good, but please do something about our staff, probably a training to explain how smile and how be cordial

Chandra Coleman: Food was delicious, staff were friendly and knowledgeable. The Toasted Marshmallow shake was AMAZING!! My only regret was that we didn't find it sooner.

Kyle Van Hecke: Things I like: Good burgers and shakes! Fries are actually really good too (despite some of the reviews suggesting otherwise) but you have to eat them fresh. They put all their fries immediately into a sealed paper bag so they will get soggy unless you eat them at the restaurant. They also have a selection of fry dipping sauces that are good! Things I dislike: the burger size could definitely be bigger. I do eat a lot but I can easily finish 2 burgers in one sitting (which is waaaay too expensive for my budget). Their beer selection is pretty underwhelming too, they only have 1 option at the moment. Finally, they charge a 5% “COVID surcharge.” I absolutely understand the time we live in but just be honest and raise your prices… don’t add on a hidden 5% fee. Fees like this feel very dishonest to me and that’s why I knocked them down from 4 to 3 stars.

Jerilyn Williams: I didn't like my burger.. for a $9 burger.. I expected more. Felt like they really just threw something together. My guest enjoyed her cheese burger but neither of us like the Village Fries.. I think they should have been fresher, they seemed soggy and too soft. The milkshakes were good.. I had the salted caramel and my guest had vanilla. This definitely wasn't a $30 meal.

TRAM HA: Came here cause it was close to the Capitol and had lots of reviews. To be honest I’m not sure why cause the food was ok. Burgers tasted alright. The fries were not good but better with the thyme and rosemary. I think it’s also the oil in fries that I didn’t like. Also ordered two shakes. Salted caramel (my mom liked that) and a cookies n cream shake that of course didn’t have enough cookies. It was pretty much a vanilla shake. Maybe it was just the workers that day cause they weren’t that friendly. You know when you don’t want to be at work and others can tell? Yeah it was like that.

Charlie Sanders: One of the best burgers I’ve ever had, and reasonably priced as well. The Prez was definitely worth the money, and the rest of my crew loved the burgers they got. The toasted marshmallow milkshake was heavenly. If I was a legislative staffer I’d be eating here everyday.

Ben's Chili Bowl: what do users think?


Joseph McAndrews: A classic lunch counter in the heart of DC! Right across the street from the U street metro station on the yellow/green line. Fast, friendly service. Counter order and then seat yourself. The meal combo deal is an extra $5 for a fountain drink and fries. I recommend skipping it because it's not quite worth it. Spend the money on a milkshake instead! The walls are filled with pictures famous people who have eaten there. This place is great! Definitely check it out.

Oi Lin “Chinagirl568” Wong: Walk in and order, they will bring you your food. There are a few tables up front, in the middle and in the back. Pictures of famous people all over the walls. Even have a TV playing with more pictures. This is a DC landmark. The place is fun to check out. But the chili was just ok... Service was good.

Evan S: A must try when coming to DC! I loved eating here.. everyone wears masks and are nice and friendly.. the hot dog was okay.. the burger and chili bowl with rice is what shined.. check it out

Trent Hinek: I don’t know what else can be said of this diner. The half smoke is one of the best Chile dogs you can have and their milkshakes just compliment the spiciness of the chili. You really should seek it out if you’re anywhere near U Street in DC. Just make sure you go to the original one. Their new one in the convention center is only open during events.

Sam M: One of the more famous restaurants in DC and rightfully so! I visited this place several times after the venues in U street. From Obama to Bourdain, a lot of famous people have been to place and it is been tourist’s attraction for DC. As soon as you walk into the restaurant, you can tell this place has been around for a long time. I ordered their famous half smoke chili dog, chili cheese fries and milkshake. Probably one of the best chili I ever had and beef dog was cooked really well. Even the milkshake was pretty good too. It is a perfect late night food after the venue or a few drinks. I was there pretty late during the weekend and there were plenty of drunk people there. I highly recommend this place for some good chili and half smoke dog!

Chad H (xlr231): Mediocre food at hugely inflated price. Service wasn't good either. It was $27 for a cheeseburger, chili cheese fries, and a bottle of (warm) Dr Pepper. They don't have prices posted on the menu, if they did I probably would've left. Ordered the cheeseburger and even though I explained to the guy three times no lettuce but I want everything else on it (tomato, onion, ketchup, mayo- they still managed to screw it up. When I got the burger (with only lettuce and tomato) it was dry and not very good. Definitely worth nowhere near the $11 it cost. I could have gone to Five Fuys for that and gotten something that was infinitely better. For $8 their portion size on the chili cheese fries was pretty pathetic. The fries were kind of cold and stale the chili was okay- maybe one step better than something you'd get out of a can. And the bottle of Dr pepper they pulled out of the fridge was room temperature. I asked for a cup of ice because of it and they gave me a shot glass size cup. I had to refill it about five times, but all the ice and melted after about the second time filling it.

Michelle Clogan: The restaurant appeared clean and the employees were... Not friendly, but tolerable. The food was mediocre at best. The actual dog in the chili smoke was really delicious and smokey. The chili was mostly tomato sauce, which wasn't super satisfying, was hard to eat, and made the bun so soggy. I also got chili cheese fries, but the fries were barely cooked. Again, edible, but not worth $8 and certainly not worth going out of your way to visit.

Jean Ng: Milkshake ☑️ Chili Bowl ☑️ Hot Dog ☑️ Onion Rings ☑️ What else are you waiting for !? Get your bum here already at this most soulful diner in town. Its definitely a DC institution with wonderful food. Many famous people have frequent this joint over the years and you can sit where Obama sat. It was a weekday lunch hour and thank god its not filled with tourist and the line moves quickly at the counter. By the way the white outdoor tents doesnt belong to Ben’s Last but not least, it was the google ad about BEN’s that brought us here from NYC. So thank you google !!

Lucy Leon: Can not come to DC and not stop here. Im so happy it didn't disappoint! The food and service is amazing. I cant indulge like I used to so I had a salad before I had my chili fries. Everything was fresh and delicious. My friends had half smokes but per usual I was too busy eating to take pictures.

John David Suayan: So my older millennial self visitor's our nation's capital for the first time ever. I succumbed to the siren song of the half-smoke. And that's how I ended up at Ben's. Ben's has been around since the time of the fight for Civil Rights. Located in the neighborhood that was once known as "Black Broadway", the eatery had a front row seat to history, as well as hosted those made it. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. ate here. Stokely Carmichael ate here. Pres. Barack Obama ate here. You get the picture. And yes, I had myself the famous half-smoke with onion rings. It met many of my expectations. I just wished it were bigger for more enjoyment, but other than that, the capital's tube steak answer to the dogs of Chicago and New York deserves the old college try from first-timers to the area. Oh, and another thing. I was fortunate to have met the legendary Virginia Ali, the co-owner of Ben's. She and her late husband, the namesake, got this place off the ground eons and eons ago. Mrs. Ali is still grinding at nearly the century mark.

District Taco: what do users think?


Luke Chang: Food was okay. Not a lot of space to eat in-door. Layout is different, with up-stairs level. Services was okay. 2 unisex restrooms. Cleanliness needs improvement. I like the setup so I can see the food being made. Not bad, not great, just average. Overall, I would come here again.

Kevin Rayan: Always a favorite for lunch or even dinner when I am in DC. It’s reasonably priced for DC and the tacos are so delicious. They replaced the soft drink machine in the photo that was unique to them with coke products modern machine and I am happy about that. I always get water but now my options improved. Highly recommended that you try them.

Emma Heys: Great food! Delicious veggie options and a fab selection of fountain drinks. Charming art deco building

Darmesha Holland: I used To visit this location almost everyday for lunch as I worked Right across the street, I haven’t Been here since before COVID before today. I was Not happy with my service today as the salsa bar was closed the employees had to place my salsa in containers, I was Told by a male employee that I was Limited on the amount of salsa I could Have because they charge for extra. I have no issue with paying extra for condiments but the way I was Told was very rude
Response: Thank you so much for reaching out to us with your feedback on your recent visit with us. We have had to discontinue the use of our salsa bars for the time being, and apologize for the disappointment surrounding that. We will make sure our team is more informative when it comes to explaining and offering our new limits on dispensing sides of salsa. I apologize for the inconvenience, regardless, and want to make this right for you. Can you please send a copy of your receipt to taco@districttaco.com?

Love Isbeautiful: Before the pandemic I used to eat here often since I work one block away. Since we are now back at work, I decided to eat here again….twice. The first time, my order was completely incorrect. I didn’t have time to contact the store because I had a meeting to get to. Needless to say I tried eating some of the food and it just wasn’t good. The rice was hard and tasted old. Everything else wasn’t fresh like it used to be. The second time, which was today, again the rice was hard and tasted old, the bacon wasn’t cooked all the way through, and the chicken tasted old as well. I’m not sure if we can blame the pandemic for the poor quality of the food but I won’t be eating here anymore.
Response: Good afternoon, Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback on this recent visit with District Taco. I'm so sorry to hear about the conditions of the order you received, and we definitely want to make this right for you. Our ingredients should always taste fresh and we pride ourselves on the high quality of our products. When you have a moment, can you please send a copy of your receipt from this order if it is still available?

Amy Tucker: I had the three tacos on flour tortillas with carne asada. Hubby had three tacos on corn. They were EXCELLENT. The meat was smokey and tender, super juicy. The habanera salsa was perfectly balanced. Enough acid with the heat to make it sing on the pallet. I really loved their mission to have a low carbon footprint. The vibes inside were authentic and comfortable and they even have us access to their WiFi!

Melissa Marie: The chips and queso, with pico added, was perfect for an evening craving in the hotel. The salsa was pretty good, but not as good as the queso. They have kiosks inside to order quickly and pay. Dedicated area to pick up orders.

Sir Hiltons: A pretty straightforward experience here. Enter on the left side, order on the right, fill a drink whilst you wait for your food and then I went and ate at one of the tables outside. I had a burrito but there are a range of things to try plus the drinks can be tailored at the machine. This doesn't feel like a large branch from the outside but it was fairly busy at 5pm on a Saturday and there were a fair few people getting orders. Worth a visit if you are looking to eat and be on your way somewhere else within 45 minutes.

Hannah Feldman: I love district taco. The corn tortillas are gluten free and they are delicious. They are thick and they warm them up and they are a joy to eat. The whole set up for District Taco works really well, since you tell them everything you want when you order. I would eat here every day if I could.

Katrina: They scraped the times off the door and won't respond to knocks. Fair enough, but the website says 10. Only the online ordering says 11am. We just wanted to know what time it opened so we tried knocking on the glass because we could see staff. None of the staff would even look us in the eye. They could have at the very least put up a paper sign like the other note. Update: They open at 11 and the food was fine. I think I was already put off by the awkward avoidance of eye contact. so this is a biased 1 star review. People love it here I'm just not coming back. Hundreds of other places to spend my money. Enjoy your tacos people.

Lucky Buns: what do users think?


Jill: The food, cocktails, and service here is excellent! We sat at the bar for a round of drinks and apps and had a great time. The mumbo nugs and crispy sprouts were both delicious fusion dishes with tons of flavor - spicy, savory, and fresh. Next time I'm in town, I'll be coming here again for a burger as they looked bomb!

Muniba Khan: Lucky Buns is the place to go for burgers and chicken sandwiches! I got the Hot Tiger Bun and it was the bomb- I really enjoyed the Sichuan pepper flakes in it and it was completely out of this world. But I will say I think the warnings about it being very spicy were a bit of an exaggeration. We also got the chips and the brussel sprouts for the table, and they were similarly delicious! I also recommend getting the ginger beer that they have on tap. If you're planning to come for dinner, you should expect a wait- we came on a Tuesday night and it was only about a 15 minute wait, although when we tried coming on Saturday we had no such luck.

Marbin Gonzalez: This is the best burger joint I've been too. Can not wait to go back and try the rest of the menu... I was not a fan of the chili at all, but to each there own. It was spiced just a bit to much for me. I enjoyed the tots a lot though. Sauced heavily and very crispy . Definitely recommend you stop by sometime soon.

Larry “Big Schlim” Mcleod: I made a decision to go to this spot at the last second. I honestly forgot that I had been wanting to go ahead and try their burgers. Well I went I tried them and I’m gonna tell you all about it. Feeling lucky? Got buns? On 2000 18th St., N.W. Washington D.C., right on the corner, you’ll find @eatluckybunz for drinks, beers, and…Burgers!! . . . Let’s get to it this place has all different kind of burgers like their Lucky Bun burger with two Creekstone patties, Gouda, lucky sauce, pickles, arugula, and grilled red onion. They also have chicken sandwiches like their Japanese themed Katsu bun (Fried chicken thigh with Tonkatsu sauce, Karashi slaw, Nori, and turmeric picked onion. There is a veggie burger available, toppings like bacon jam, and a runny egg available. They have fries that they called chips like their cheesy chips with green chili queso & cojita. There’s sauces range from curry to mumbo!! . . . First up I got their OG burger(pictured with Double patty, gouda, she lettuce,Well red onion, garlic mayo, yellow mustard $14 bacon jam & a runny egg added $16). DELICIOUS!! If it weren’t for the soggy bun, this would’ve been a STAMP!! . . Second up was their Hot Tiger bun spicy fried chicken thigh sandwich (pictured with Sichuan peppercorn spice paste, pickles, onions, buttermilk ranch mayo, and Chinese yellow mustard $12) STAMP!! Thick, crispy, and HOT!! This joint was good goodt!! . . Thirdly was there Bogan Bun (pictured with Double patties, Gouda, bacon XO jam, Lucky sauce, pickles, grilled red onion, and arugula $15). STAMP!! The bun held up on this one and all these ingredients melted in your mouth with the aftertaste of that bacon jam!! EXCELLENT!! . . Lastly I had their BRAAI (South African bbq spice) spiced chips (pictured with spicy Sambal ketchup $7). DECENT. The fries were lukewarm, but the ketchup made up for that!! . . Customer service was DECENT. As messy as the sandwiches were, I got no utensils, and more importantly no napkins. Online ordering was easy, and simple, parking was rough, I didn’t check the cleanliness, the inside was closed, but they still fulfilled online orders. They got good burgers! That’s it. #Bigschlimsreviews

Robert LeCompte: This is my second time at this restaurant and did not disappoint. The food is fresh, the environment is pleasant, the staff is friendly even on a late weeknight, and enjoyable to unwind. The burgers are very large and perfect palette of taste. Here's my burger and I'd recommend getting a fried egg (ahhhmazing - photo snapped by Samsung galaxy z fold 2 5g)

shehzan dahya: honestly, best burger I’ve had and top of the list. the vibes are amazing and it’s a very neat place. I had the OG and Royale and they were both cooked to perfection. my friends for hot tiger and Alfies and loved it.

Brandon Arnbrister: Picked up at Union Market. Ordered the belly bun. Amazing burger. Cooked perfectly, well seasoned. Just delicious. Highly recommend

Mark Orebiyi: Got a chance to stop by Lucky Buns with the Fried Chicken Sandwich crew. We started our journey at Lucky Buns a little over 2 years ago. We’ve gotten the change to try the DMVs top 27 Fried Chicken Sandwich spots (still more on the list). It’s been an experience. Lucky Buns was always a fan favorite. The service was awesome and surprisingly quick. We ate outside since the weather was amazing. They have a very cool vibe. Staff is friendly as well. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Steve Smith: Called for a take out order and just asked for two burgers that are recommended and an order of fries. Wasn’t sure what we got but thinking it was the OG BUN and BOGAN BUN but honestly not 100% sure. Rating is a 4 out of 5. Both burgers were bursting with flavor but a little too much sauce and not a fan of burgers falling apart when you eat them. The fries were average and wouldn’t order again.The burgers are way above average and borderline excellent. Night before had a burger at Duke’s Grocery which was 5 stars, so I place that above Lucky Buns not not by much!

Tim Horton: Really good. Food is a bit pricey (honestly what isn't in DC?), and the beer selection is a bit weak, but there's an awesome ambiance in the restaurant and delicious food. One other thing I didn't like was how LOUD the music was on a Saturday night. It felt like I was in a nightclub instead of a restaurant. My friend and I had to yell to hear each other. Also the service was a bit slow but they were slammed so I totally get it.

G Street Food: what do users think?


Sanai Thompson: So basically went here on a school trip. They served spaghetti, meatballs, chicken Parm, and salad/ veggies and some noodles For starters when I used the tongs to pick up the chicken it fell off and it was very mushy and soggy Don’t come here it’s disgusting and made me loose my appetite. Simone broke out in hives becuase of the lemonade My friend got sick becuase of the salad the meat was so processed ANWYAYS terrible place ew👎🏾

Hauls With Jessica: If you want to enter hell go here. The meatballs weren’t even real meat…. The broccoli is was frozen, the spaghetti was cold and sticky, the cookies almost broke my teeth.. Horror movie are better than this. I’d rather die than eat here AGAIN! Beware on future school trips

Joy Amessoudji: Great service, nice atmosphere, clean, quick…the food just genuinely tasted terrible. Not cooked poorly, just bad flavor. Of course that’s not something the employees can control so five stars on their part🤷‍♀️

Rhed HeadDred: I was in the mood for a diner breakfast. You know... eggs, seasoned homefries, and toast with jelly. I'm not too familiar with places to eat downtown so I found this place through Google maps. The place is nice and spacious. Upon entering, there is a menu board to the right. There's a big selection of omelets. So I ordered the Spinach omelet with homefries and wheat toast. The omlete was great. Nice and fluffy with a good amount of provolone cheese and spinach. The "homefries" were anything but. The fries were deep fried like they were making french fried and tossed in grilled peppers and onions. They were bite sized for a toddler. I like traditional chunky homefries. They also do catering and the platters I saw for pick up looked pretty good. I came here around 8:30 and the place is nice and quiet. So I would probably eat here again but it wouldn't be my first choice.

Elianna Wesly: Instead of taking your kids to a horror movie, go here. You get the same scare. The chicken was dry, the cookies almost cracked my teeth, and oh not to mention, my friend got FOOD POISONING! There was water in the bathroom floor, and it smelled gross.

Trevor Vander linden: Absolutely terrible don’t recommend. Bagels were stale and orange juice was sour, bacon was oddly cooked

Arianna Mello Risco: Food is great there. But in the morning they are always in a rush time because of online orders for catering and this was what I got for breakfast at G Street this morning. It s an egg, cheese and ham sanduiche. I didn' t like it at all, got dispointed!

Adam Temple: Excellent foodGreat serviceMy group loved it

jeanna borneo: Tried the halal combo. def wont recommend, shouldve read the reviews before i went. I cant even explain the taste, but it's not halal, im actually pretty upset cause i cant even bare to finish it

Crystal “Crys” Wainwright: First time here and I will be back to try more of their menu. I came for lunch and had the chicken quesadilla and fries. Fresh food and it tasted good. Prices are on par with the downtown area so not surprised. Plenty of seats and not overcrowded at 1:30 when I went.

Wiseguy Pizza: what do users think?


Q: Solid pizza slices with interesting choices. It's the version of NY pizza where the slices are a bit thicker and you have that crunchy bottom, not the foldable slice ones. We had the Nashville Hot Chicken, Korean Chicken, Mushroom Truffle, and Buffalo. I personally would have liked the hot/spicy slices to have been spicy, but it was pretty much offset by the ranch or cabbage mix on the slice. Wasn't too busy before the Caps game... perhaps because it's a few blocks from the Arena. I'd return to try some of the other flavors.

Sajud Hamza: If you looking for a late night snacking wise guy pizza is a great option right in the middle of Washington DC.. you get all kinds of pizza plus the garlic breads are soo yummy you can’t stop eating !! It has outdoor seating but lacks parking and it’s a problem all over the Washington DC for parking!! Open till late on the Washington street!! Best for after party food!!

Tommy Byler: This is the best pizza place I’ve ever been to. I can’t recommend enough the Korean Chicken and Buffalo Chicken pizzas. They are pictured below. It’s around 5 bucks a slice, but totally worth it. The chocolate chip cookies are warm and but underbaked, perfect.

Maggie Wei: Really good pizza! I’m not really a pizza person because I’m usually not a huge fan of dough-related products but their pizza is pretty good! I tried the grandma, Margherita and supreme. All are really good. Pizza’s crust is thin and not too dry. I’ll definitely recommend the Margherita, it has a special flavor (I think it’s the mozzarella cheese they use have a really rich flavor). Staff are also all really friendly! I’ll say they’re probably the top 2 pizzas I’ve had in ny life so far (my top one is in NY Hudson valley area) If you’re visiting DC and don’t know what to eat, this pizza place definitely worth a try! Food is good and the price is reasonable.

Katlyn Martin: This place is great! The slices are huge and affordable, and there are so many options to pick from. Highly recommend the Buffalo Chicken and the Supreme… the Mushroom Truffle isn’t bad either. The only recommendations I have are maybe for signage (so people who haven’t been there before know how/where to order) and take away spices (pepper, cheese, garlic) - as it is, you just scoop them out of a community container directly on your pizza which isn’t the most sanitary option.

Anthony: Solid 5/5! I went here on a late Saturday night with a friend after carousing around DC. Hungry as we were, pizza would do the trick. The Food: After browsing all of the different pizza selections they had, I went with the Chicken Paneer and Buffalo Pizza. They were specialty slices so they were $4ish per slice. The flavor of the Buffalo pizza was delicious and the size of the slice was big as well. I'd say, the chicken paneer pizza was the best I had so far, all of the ingredients worked together and was delicious! I almost went back for another slice. The Service: The staff were friendly and got the orders/line moving quickly. My order came out in a timely manner as well. Overall, solid place for a late night pizza spot! I'll be back for sure.

Tim G: Tasty specialty pizzas. Nashville hot chicken and Korean chicken are delicious choices – interesting flavors, balanced with fresh crispy cabbage on top, and a wonderfully thin and crunchy crust.

Vishrut Shelat: In this world it seems like the "Ratings-Rich, get only Richer!" My family and I tried this place for lunch after dropping a friend off at the Union Station. We ordered the Paneer Tikka Pizza, which was absolutely delicious. All pizza slices are 18-inch and a whole pizza order comes with 8 slices. The order took about 20 mins to make, despite the heavy order flow, and the service from the staff was great. The pizza was crisp, full of different toppings, and topped with chutneys and different sauces. I can eat a whole pizza, from chains like Dominos, myself, but after 3 slices of the 18 inch Paneer Tikka Pizza, I was full. The pricing is not cheap here but it is reasonable considering the large 18-inch size of the pizzas, 8 slice quantiity, and the fact it is DC. The only points to consider are that the restaurant doesn't have much indoor seating (3 tables), but there is ample outdoor seating, and that the menu posted on google maps is outdated (ex. there is no Mediterranean Pizza there anymore). Overall after years of dealing with mediocre "NOVA Pizza chains," I am glad I found this spot. This place is my new "go to pizza spot" whenever I visit DC.

Yessenia C: Really good pizza with delicious flavors. Crispy yet chewy crust. Lots of great options to choose from. Open late night. They warm up the pizza to the perfect level.

Matthew Cook: Pizza by the slice. Whole bunch of different pizzas. All of the ones I tried were very tasty. Couple of salad options. Open late. Good price for the size of the slices

Tortilla Café: what do users think?


Chris East: True hole in the wall. I can see why Guy F enjoyed this place. Ordered the empanana player and was not disappointed. My wife and two kids enjoyed the visit as well. The food came out hot and fresh even though it was near closing time. The setting inside was quaint and was great for my family. Easy to locate and was conveniently located next the marketplace. The service was also top notch. The staff were very friendly and clearly shows they enjoy what they do. My only opportunity is the need for a better selection of drinks, specifically tea. But that does not affect my 5 star rating!!!!

Critical Chris: A real DEAL on the Hill: one of the last of the affordable and satiating places to eat still left on the hill. One of the LAST still left in DC. Before the Hill gets even more bougie than it is now, make time to try this place, now, to get a taste of a blue collar meal that will fill you up for the rest of the day! Try the Salvadoran breakfast, or a side of the delicious sweet sautéed plantains, depicted in my photo, or the Mexican breakfast, a breakfast burrito with egg and crumbled chorizo, a seasoned sausage. As of April, 2022, this wonderful hidden treasure IS OPEN for dining inside, or on their patio seating out front, across from Eastern Market.

Bexx Hill: Stoners' be warned! I mean "DAMN" I have eaten a lot of papusas in my lifetime, but the papusa I just got from Tortilla Cafe is, by far, the best I've had. Not only is the food reasonably priced, it is overflowing with cheese and maxed out on flavor. It is definately a best kept secret. Many thanks to Rodrigo.

Christian Moon: They make their Pupusa platters very well in my opinion! Highly recommend this dish from there. My coworkers like their steak and cheese sub sandwiches too. If you're ever in the area, try them out! Just keep in mind they take 15-20 minutes to cook and prep your food

Marinne Hardy: This was the worst food I’ve ever tried to eat!!!! I was offered a replacement. I pass I never want to go there again!!!!!!!

Leavy Peretto: The food is so good. Authentic. It has all sorts of great foods to chose from and everything is done right. That's why they were on the food channel. This is a small spot but theres always room for dessert. The deserts are awesome too. The fresh made juice drinks are to die for and the service can be compared to being treated like family. This place is love.

A. Kobrina: We were starving when we stumbled into this little joint! They had vegetarian and dairy intolerant friendly options. The prices are super low for the area and the food was so darn good!!! I d highly recommend Mexican food deliciousness to any of my friends!!!

Todd Bissey THE BISSEY RE TEAM: Tortilla Cafe is one of the best kept secrets on Capitol Hill. The food, service & overall experience is always top notch. Mr. Canales and his daughter Catalina are always so friendly & welcoming. Such a great family & Capitol Hill staple. And the prices at Tortilla Cafe are extremely reasonable to boot! My favorite is the Cuban Sandwich with a side of their plantains. Delicious!

Blair Wriston: I really liked this place, but the last few times have been super disappointing. I used to always get their Salvadoran chicken sandwich, but lately the chicken and the sides have been absurdly over cooked - to the point of inedible. The plantains were really dry, and the chicken was very rubbery. Just feels like the quality is slipping a lot.

Bessie Ayala: Listen I am very picky about pupusas since I’m Salvadorian and it’s our National dish. I have tried many spots in the dmv and I have to say this is top tier when it comes to pupusas. It’s made just right and I’m obsessed. I’m so happy I found this spot so close to home. Friendly staff and speedy service. We only ordered pupusas but deff will be checking out the rest of the menu.

Ted's Bulletin: what do users think?


Arash Tavakoli: I had one of my best dining experiences in this place. The breakfast is easily enough for two people. The staff are super welcoming. Try their tarts and that tastes like heaven. Been very happy with the pancakes and hey they bring you a whole container of coffee. I also really liked that when we ordered one breakfast for two, they put it in two different plates. Thoughtful! So enjoy!

Calvin Thumma: My wife and I went here after a recommendation from a co-worker of mine. The area we are from has a number very good bistro and brunch locations but this meal blew them out of the water. My French toast was by far the best I’ve ever had, the bacon was crisp, potatoes were perfect and the eggs yummy. My wife’s meal was equally delicious, she order eggs, potatoes, toast and sausage. Nicole was our server and made sure every was perfect and never left our drinks get close to empty

Paul LaVigne: Enjoyed the bakery treats we had the other day so much we came back for brunch. Be sure to call ahead for reservations as this is a very busy place with longer wait times. The food was excellent. I do recommend you come and enjoy this place when you’re in town

Angelica Norman-Beltran: Walked past this restaurant on my way home and decided to stop and have dinner. I'm so glad I did. My waitress was very nice and sociable. I ordered their Lavender Mule from the cocktail menu, Loaded Tater tots to start and decided to go with Avocado toast for my dinner, and finished everything off with their seasonal Cherry Blossom Churros. Every thing tasted amazing, I'd caution on using too much of the ranch sauce on the tater tots. It added an extra salt flavor that my mouth didn't like, use it sparingly. The Avocado toast was worth it the price. The poached eggs were made perfectly and there was a lot more avocado than I expected so that was a pleasant surprise. (Note it can be spicy with they peppers they use). All in all I'm happy I found this place while on a walk. I'll need to stop by again and try out a nother dish!

Jessica Zheng: Pretty good brunch location! For drinks, we just got a caramel iced coffee and a vanilla milkshake. Coffee was okay, didn’t really taste the caramel flavor at all. For our meals- I got the Big Mark Breakfast. The sausage was very tasty but the eggs and hash brown were pretty bland, I ended up using dipping them in ketchup. Boyfriend got the salmon toast, that was surprisingly tasty! I was just weirded about eating raw salmon as my first meal of the day but it caught me by surprise!

Tilak Kalaria: Absolutely spectacular dining experience at Tex’s Bulletin for brunch. Service was awesome in this spot with a great ambience and location in DC. The food was excellent too so much to choose from. Their avacado toast has such great attention to detail. The S’mores tart was special! To better enhance our awesome experience someone kind patron paid for my party of 5’s brunch!! Highly recommend Ted’s!!

Amanda Pokrzywa: Friendly service, great atmosphere, insanely delicious food! Highly recommend the BBQ & Bacon Bloody Mary! There's something special about their homemade tarts. The Huevos Rancheros hit all the flavor profiles I was looking for.

Fiorella Hidalgo: Went to get the special cherry blossom dessert during the Cherry Blossom Festival! Smoked Salmon Benedict is one of the best I ever had before! (I like it better than Kramer’s!). It took a while to get seated on a Sunday morning, so try to make a reservation in advance!

Hannah: Okay. I’m excited to review this place as an avid brunch food lover. To begin: we were told that the wait time was 40mjn and given a buzzer. Great. No problem, totally understand. To be fair, we hadn’t made reservations that morning. We wait 50min. They then tell us to wait another 30 minutes. My pregnant and hungry friend got it changed to 20min. Still. Once inside, the vibes were great. Our server was fast and attentive. Huge food portions and cute decor. Definitely not worth the weird waiting times, but will definitely make reservations next time!

Jacob Grice: Breakfast was awesome!!! Staff was super nice, restaurant was clean and the atmosphere was uplifting and calming at the same time. Food was very good and filling , you must try the cheese cake!! Defiantly will be back again!!

Unconventional Diner: what do users think?


Zeyu Hu: Went to Unconventional Diner for both brunch and dinner and let me tell you they didn’t disappoint at all. Brunch: Got three different items to share for brunch, and each was unique in its own way but complimented each other so well. The shrimp and grits were perfect. The BBQ shrimp had an amazing smokey smell which really made it stand out. The biscuits were also amazing, nice and crispy and the house made sausage was great. The blueberry pancakes were the fluffiest I’ve ever had, a great sweet treat to end the meal. Dinner: Came back for dinner a week later and it blew me out of the water again. As the name suggests, the menu has a large variety and when the waiter tells you you can’t go wrong with anything, they ain’t lying. We got such a variety of food - from French to southern, Chinese stir fry to Cuban. It just all works so well. Bottom line: A must visit if you are in DC. The best wait staff and service. But remember to book ahead!

Claire Mizutani: Went out to dinner with my family and a friend from school. Great food! I really enjoyed the mezze and the Mac n cheese. Speedy service and great labeling on the menu for those with dietary restrictions. I wish that the outdoor seating area had heaters but now that the weather is getting warmer that may be less of an issue

Christopher Guarin: Was in town to check out the Cherry Blossom Festival. We made a point to stop in for some brunch before walking all over town. We were definitely not disappointed. Everything we tried was delicious! From the drinks, to the Everything Lox, and Chicken and Waffles....every bite was amazing. We will be back for more on our next trip!

Eric Lee: Got the cheeseburger and fried chicken. Both were phenomenal. Simple dishes but everything was cooked and seasoned so well. Price for these dishes were affordable. Great vibe as well, pretty large space. Will be back to try more!

Queen Melissa: Wonderful for family outing , a date and friends brunch. Everything was outstanding. The cleanliness was good. The customer service and server was really nice. My kids loved everything and they are usually picky eaters. This was my first time eating shrimps and grits all I can say it was amazing. Overall,we were a satisfied family and will be back again.

Ben Multak: Unconventional diner dishes but delicious flavors. Everything I’ve tried here has hit and the restaurant itself is a well oiled machine. Highly recommend if you find yourself in the area. Really enjoyed the Crab Fritters and Fried Chicken

Sirius Fidelity: This was one of my favorite food places on my trip. The place was a pretty good size, clean, and bright. There also appeared to be outside dining as well. I ordered the kid size portion of the Blueberry Lavender Pancakes as pictured, and the Shrimp and Grits. Nothing short of amazing. Prices were reasonable and the portion sizes good. I highly recommend this place.

Christal Young: I love a place that has vegan as well as non-vegan options. This place was so good, I came back two days in a row. Their kale nachos were just superb and their cauliflower salad with falafel was also delicious and filling. The colors and ambiance are also nicely done. There are several dining spaces, including indoor and outside seating, each with its own vibe.

ReCreate Artworks: I found this gem about a 20 minute walk north of the mall. I cannot recommend it enough. There was plenty of seats, the staff was quick and efficient, and the restaurant itself was stunning. It makes you feel luxurious without having the price tag that usually comes with it. It’s very affordable but the quality of food is beyond the price. I got a double shot of espresso and the Brussel Sprouts with Fried Egg. 10/10.

Chunhee Hong: We had buttermilk pancake, corned beef hash, cappuccino and rise & shine. All delicious! The customer service and server were really nice. Overall,we were satisfied and will be back again to try other menu!

Chaia Georgetown: what do users think?


Emma Rose Wooten: Fantaaaastic and delicious fast-casual vegan/vegetarian/gluten-free food!!! I got one mushroom taco and one sweet potato taco – sweet potato is definitely the best. The girl who took our order was super friendly, and our food came out within 5 minutes of ordering. Just be aware that there is very little seating inside so you’ll probably have to take it to go and eat outside.
Response: Thank you for visiting our Georgetown shop. The sweet potato taco is a favorite of ours too! We also love the rainbow chard quesadilla. It is a new seasonal item on our menu. We hope to see you again soon.

Andrew Davis: The egg/bean and the sweet potato hash tacos were decent, but the asparagus taco was not good - the flavor and texture were both unpleasant. I can see this being a fine restaurant if you're a vegetarian and really want some more variety, but if you want decent tacos and aren't vegetarian, look elsewhere.

Melissa Buckingham: Ran in here before the forecasted snow started and asked the employee for their top three tacos. He told me about the braised mushroom, creamy kale and potato, and chipotle sweet potato hash. I used the kiosk to order the taco trio and an iced hibiscus tea then found myself a table. The service was very fast and the food was excellent. I was pleasantly surprised with the tea because I've had bitter versions before. This was perfectly sweet and if I lived here, I'd be back.
Response: Thank you, Melissa!

Vikram Seshadri: One of the best Vegetarian and Vegan restaurants I have visited. Must try the Brussel Sprouts Quesadilla. Loved their Herbal and Green tea as well. Ton of options and definitely will recommend to anyone who is in DC.

Mario Morales: Very interesting but healthy and delicious. All vegan options but with so much flavors. So good! We had a variety of tacos and all were so good. I had to order seconds! Staff was friendly and the girl behind the kitchen counter was very nice and helpful.
Response: Thank you, Mario!

Aramis Penland: Full disclosure - I have eaten Chaia no less than 20 times over the years and it is one of my 5 favorite small/quick bites in the DMV. So yes I am biased. DELICIOUSLY BIASED. For a vegan place, it is ridiculous how tasty the food is here. I am a carnivore, though I routinely choose Chaia over the 100s of carnivore-centric options I could go to instead because it simply TASTES. BETTER. My favorites (all 5/5s) are as follows: 1) Creamy Kale & Potato Taco - One of the best tacos I have ever had (so good that when I order the taco trio, I sometimes just order 3 of these rather than mixing and matching). The creama and salsa verde go perfectly with the kale and potato. Plus the pickled red onion on top provides a perfect sweet/sour contrast. 2) Brussels Sprouts Quesadilla - This would easily be $9-11 at a sit down restaurant, but at Chaia it is $5 and might be one of the best deals/values I can think of anywhere. Granted the quesadilla isn't big, bit it is gooey cheesiness + healthiness + delicious jalapeno dipping salsa = YAS. 3) Chips w/Tahini Black Bean Dip - Yes this is just a small bag of chips. But my goodness THAT DIP. Just try it. 4) Iced Hibiscus Tea - What are most iced teas like? Watered down. What are most hibiscus drinks like? Not strong/flavorful enough. What is this? Not watered down and max strength/flavor. MOAR. To be completely objective, not everything at Chaia is great. I haven't been a fan of the enchiladas, several of the other tacos, or the rice and bean stand alone sides. But when you have so many incredibly delicious options (as listed above), just get these over and over and over again and be happy (over and over and over again).

Devin Boe: Overall pretty good tacos, and I love the idea of a plant-based taco place. The sweet potato tacos are great, but the asparagus tacos were not good, both texture and flavor wise. The black beans with crema are tasty, but could have used more jalapeno. This location has a nice patio to eat on right outside by the canals, great for nice weather! Also, service is excellent. The people who work there are quite kind and friendly!
Response: Thanks! We appreciate the feedback on the asparagus taco and the black beans. The chipotle sweet potato taco is a customer favorite. Delicious vegan or with cheese. We hope you come by again. Our menu changes with the seasons.

Amy Suchodolski: Fantastic vegan & vegetarian taco shop in Georgetown. The tomatillo gazpacho was cool and refreshing. Hibiscus tea was great. Tacos are delicious.
Response: Thank you! We are so glad you enjoyed your vegan and vegetarian tacos and gazpacho. We hope you visit again soon and try our new kale salad. It’s delicious.

mithilesh shivapuram: The tacos are one of best and fresh of all.I can make suggestion of introducing some different tortilla varieties would be great
Response: Thank you!

Natasha Shokouhi: I loved Chaia when they first opened. While I still like it, it's not as good as it was when they first started. The service isn't good anymore. They used to be warm and friendly. Now they are extra slow and not really that welcoming anymore. My favorites are... Roasted Eggplant Mushroom Charred Green Beans - super spicy! Creamy Kale and Potato Smokey Greens Roasted Butternut Squash I really love the green rice and beans together! The rice is a little too bland on it's own. I'm not into the sodas here, they taste very sweet even though they are more "natural". Prices are fair for the quality of ingredients you are getting. Overall - I love how plant oriented they are. This location is my favorite because the food is most consistent here and I love the atmosphere. The second floor has a small little dining area in addition to the tables on the first level.

Keren Cafe & Restaurant: what do users think?


Yongjian Si: A cute family style Eritrean restaurant near Dupont Circle in Washington DC. Friendly staff and tasty dishes! The dishes and stews were flavorful and fresh. They also offer American style breakfast, but I encourage you to get out of your comfort zone and try a new dish here. Vegetarian friendly. If it’s your first time trying Eritrean cuisine, don’t hesitate to ask the staff for recommendations. Plenty of options for meat lovers, vegetarians, and vegans alike.

Melissa Unzueta: This is my second time eating Ethiopian food and it was a true delight. I was feeling under the weather and needed a wholesome nutritious meal and decided to get their Special Shiro. It was creamy, flavorful, scrumptious. I was also pleasantly surprised when I found out my order came with an extra of Enjera bread filled with their lentil sauce and spinach. Thank you for a wonderful culinary experience!

alex clark: After hearing raving reviews from our friends, we finally tried this place…..which quickly became our favorite Ethiopian place in the city. Get the Ethiopian beer, it’s tasty and cheap!! The meal was fabulous and Uber filling. We got there right at the right time because it became packed on a Friday evening!

Fiona Alison Kibblewhite: We had a fantastic experience here! Amazing food and such good prices. We ordered the Keren special (#4) with chicken and thought it was delicious! It was also big enough for two of us to share (granted we don’t have huge appetites). I cannot recall having such good food for dinner in a sit down restaurant for less then $10 each. The wait staff were super kind and helpful, especially helping us decide what to order. I would highly recommend!

Sam OB: I would say Keren is the best breakfast spot in DMV. I would always go there anytime any day. Very cozy and reasonable price. Check them out you won’t be embarrassed.

Ray Moreno: Keren is a Washington DC jewel! It isn’t glamorous, but it’s authentic, down to earth culinary delight. An Eritrean guy told me about it years ago and I’m a repeat customer. The Ful is a great way to start your day with some yogurt, diced tomatoes, jalapeños & an egg or two. The two French rolls help wipe away the last few bites. The pasta nicely combines Italian & East African flavors. The tibs are over the top tasty and plenty juicy. I often enjoy the vegetarian combo that includes cabbage, spinach, potatoes & carrots, fresh green salad, spinach, spicy lentils and yellow split peas. Two pieces of Enjera is a perfect proportion to enjoy your communal eating experience. They’ll offer more if you ask. I love to end my meal with an individually brewed coffee or even a spiced tea. You can also make it a latte or cappuccino. Let me add, it’s extremely inexpensive! $10-$15 for one which is difficult to find in DC.

Nils Hünerfürst: Keren is a really good place for a devent veggie platter. Not so pricey but super tasty. Super nice team.

James Wang: Amazing restaurant for Ethiopian/Eritrean cuisine with large portions and some of the best food in D.C.! Very friendly staff who came to check on us up all the time. The restaurant is a little small, so make sure to get there early, but the atmosphere is very cozy and I truly appreciated the experience.

Anna Sun: So, SO good!! I just wish my friend and I ordered one dish to share instead of struggling to finish two. Food came out quickly, and the service was friendly.

Josh Axelrod: Great prices for an authentic meal. For newbies to the wonders of Ethiopian cuisine, go for a veggie combo or the Keren special to sample as many things as possible on a heaping platter of Injera, spongy Ethiopian flatbread. A perfect place to grab beers with friends while you share a plate of Tibsi and other treats.

Falafel Inc: what do users think?


Bo Zo: What a great place. The food is simply amazing!! The price is unbelievable. The cause is is such a wonderful bonus! $5 for a whole bowl of food in DC. It just may be the best falafel I've ever had. The sauces are awesome. The green and red were so hot. Two people were running the whole thing when I was there. Doing a great job. Definitely recommend! Definitely will go back.

Tammy Shah: This place is so amazing. The falafels are probably the best I've ever eaten. Light and fluffy. Cheap eats in DC. $5 for a bowl. $3 for a sandwich. $3 for fries. The sauces are excellent. The red and green sauces are hot and tasty. The white sauces are great. Would definitely recommend and definitely will go back. Everything is vegetarian and they support such a worthy cause. Thanks!

C Lilakos: Literally one of the best values in DC. The falafel bowl is loaded with spinach, falafels, toppings, and as much sauce as you want for $7. You can add fries for $3. The fries are bomb, have great flavor, and they are generous with the serving. This is hands down the cheapest meal I have had since moving from Queens to DC. The food and sauces taste great. The red sauce is SPICY. I love spicy sauces but a little goes a long way with this one.

Alisha T: It’s THE falafel spot in DC. Fresh and tender! Love the $6 falafel veggie bowl with garlic sauce 💯 Wish they sold tabbouleh as a side. Try it and you’ll be back soon!

Alexander: Wow, really tasty! Workers weren’t the most chipper/ chatty, but that’s all right as I knew what I wanted. Falafel was fantastic, and the fries, well, you have to try them with their tasty sauces. There is a reason people are saying it’s Washington D.C.’s hottest new restaurant. It was worth it, and the prices were pretty fair! I would recommend you try it for yourself!

Larry “Big Schlim” Mcleod: On this episode of BIG SCHLIMS LITE POCKET MEALS it’s been a long while coming, but, I finally made it to 1140 Maine Ave., S.W. Washington D.C.… @Falafeldc !! You can truly get inexpensive and fufilling food here. On top of that it’s also healthy food. Everything in here is vegetarian or vegan. Every meal you buy helps to feed a refugee in need, so they can eat with dignity. DOPENESS!! . . . This place adorns one of my most favorite things about a eatery… A simplified menu. . . So first up you have a falafel sandwich (pictured with falafel, lettuce, red cabbage, Pali salad, tabouli, tahini, with red sauce on a fresh baked pita $4)…STAMP!! Fresh falafel ingredients, Stuffed in a sizable pita…WINNING!! . Second up is your falafel bowl (pictured with falafel, red cabbage, tabouli, tomato, cucumber, pickles, and Zatar chips on greens with special sauce $5). STAMP!! The freshness of the falafel sandwich w/o the bread!! . Thirdly there’s their 100% Vegan Shawarma sandwich (pictured with vegan meat, red umami cabbage, lettuce, pickles & special sauce $5). STAMP!! I know you’ve heard this before “You really can’t taste the difference!!” In this instance…it’s ABSOLUTELY TRUE!! . . Oh it’s not over!! I copped their Zaatar fries, Zaatar chips, & Hummus all for $3 each!! All these items were DELICIOUS too!! . . With stand up tables outside this spots customer service was on point, online navigation was smooth, the store cleanliness was decent, but parking was difficult. This is the perfect BIG SCHLIM LITE POCKET MEAL spot!! On another note places like these would be life changing in local disenfranchised neighborhoods…$3 bucks for a delicious healthy sandwich would go a long way, AROUND THE WAY. Try it. That’s it. #bigschlimsreviews #litepocketmeals #falafel #hummus #shawarma #falafelbowl #vegan #vegetarian #healthyeats #inexpensive

Krishna Bhavithavya Kidambi: What a great place at an amazingly cheap price point. $3 for a Falafel sandwich without compromising on the taste and it was a small menu. We went almost at the closing time still the falafel was crunchy and hot. The bow was also good. Get the sandwich with added hummus. They are following good covid protocols. The staff were wearing masks and they are allowing only 5 people at once. There is no parking here but there is street parking but it might be tough to find. Overall an amazing place and if you want enjoy falafel this is the place to go.

SG: This place has a huge demand. I didn't expect so much demand for a vegetarian place. A small and neat setup. They only have external stand only tables with a shade. The falafels bowls and the zattar fries were delicious. One thing I loved about Falafels Inc is that they use a portion of their revenue to feed refugees.

Ashley Romnosky: The food was delicious and the various sauces made every bite very different and exploding with flavor. The flafel and shawarma were both tasty.

Yvonne T: One of the best bargains at The Wharf. I love the sandwiches and the salads, with or without hummus. I don't know how they can charge so little for their food, which is also a healthy alternative. The fries are well seasoned.

Catherine Ekman: French toast has chicken served right on top Of it. Mushy and lack of flavor in French toast. Chicken is tender but also flat flavor. Onion rings are burnt and lack flavor. Looks like the kind you buy frozen and fry. Soda machine broken. Milkshake was delightful, sweet and creamy! All of the tables are peeling finish on wood tops. The bench seat upholstery is cracked and peeling. All the vents in the top of the dining room are fuzzy with dusty ick. The waitress and host are very nice. Too bad the food isn’t as stellar as it could be, such a good trendy location and updated historic location.
Response: Hi Cathrine! I'm sorry to hear you were dissatisfied with your meal. We are always working to improve our menus, and new items are added regularly. I hope you'll give us another try in the future!

Regina Hogan: Willy at The Diner was so awesome! Excellent customer service. The fish tacos and cherry blossom shake were amazing! Got a table outside in the shade. Very satisfied, will definitely be back!
Response: Thank you so much, Regina :-). Glad to hear you enjoyed everything!

Greg Page: I'm a professional hitman and a hearty, nutritious meal is an important part of my regimen. Right up there with cleaning my gun. Anyway, I always stop by The Diner for some good eats and some friendly banter with my fellow hitmen colleagues. Great crowd; nobody likes hanging around with a bunch of stiffs. I always order the Monte Cristo, because who doesn't love a ham and cheese sandwich on French Toast? Yum. Anyway, the waitstaff is great and I love the old style booths. Lots of privacy, which is important in my line of work. 👍

Megan Bennett: Went to this place while visiting DC with my boyfriend. The food was amazing and the service was even better! Our waitress (wish I could remember her name) was awesome and very accommodating. Will definitely visit again when I’m in DC!

Pandora White: It was amazing. I went at a crowded time on a Saturday. I managed to snag a seat at the bar. The portions are nice. The price is amazing. The service fast. I recommend this.

Fernando Martinez: One of my go to spots when I'm hungry. It's smack dab in the middle of #AdamsMorgan which is a area in Washington DC where you can find all types of great food. This area is known for its international mixture which is awesome in so many ways.
Response: Thanks, Fernando!

Des KF: On the way into DC my boyfriend and I wanted to stop at this spot for lunch. When we arrived it took a little time to find parking. When we walked in they told us we can sit anywhere. Emmanuel was our server and he was good. We started with cocktails and I got the Bonecrusher and it was tasty. For my meal I got the chicken sandwich and it was so good! The aoli was very tasty that they added. My boyfriend got the Diner Royale and he enjoyed his meal. The bill came to about $52. We enjoyed and would return.
Response: Thanks, Des!

Levnon: Not a bad place to grab a bite. They got a good selection for breakfast/brunch/lunch. Quality is good, and so is the service.
Response: Thanks, Levnon!

Paula Ramirez: This place never disappoints me! The food is so delicious! I ordered the Ponderosa omelette and it was just perfect! We ordered the migas and wow so delicious! We also ordered a burger and it was cooked to perfection! If you want to enjoy great food at a reasonable price here in DC you def need to stop by the Diner!
Response: Thanks, Paula!
