The real deal.
BGR - The Burger Joint (Burgers)
There are a lot things the DC populace and I agree on: statehood, recess, and grease... tasty, tasty grease. There is no better form of delicious grease than the premium burger. Whenever you eat greasy food, you're going to get a stomach ache (which sucks), but I've noticed recently the better the burger, the easier the stomach ache. It's similar to the old adage about better booze leads to less painful hangovers.
- Kathryn and I first went to BGR soon after we settled in the District, but I'm finally getting around to recording my review. After about a half a dozen visits, I'm sure I can give this place proper justice.
- The burgers at BGR are amazing, definitely top flight along with Ray's and Good Stuff. Both the burgers and the buns are high quality. The fries are pretty awesome, too, but the sweet potato fries are even a notch above the regular potatoes.
- The only downside to BGR -- the shakes. They're never quite as good as Good Stuff. They do have the most extensive offering of sodas however with at least five varieties of Coke, for example (raspberry, cherry, lime, etc.).
- If you're going out for burgers specifically, BGR is a good alternative, but if you're wanting to grab lunch in DuPont circle, you would be hard pressed to find something better.
