  • Great for happy hour
Come and enjoy our 3.6.9 mini burgers, blazing hot pizzas, or any one of our chef-crafted dishes.

From its prime perch on bustling E Street NW in Penn Quarter, matchbox delights neighborhood workers, visitors, and residents with a casual, welcoming spot for a quick weekday lunch, lively happy hour, bottomless weekend brunch, and dinner for both date nights and groups. An expansive bar area with ample seating attracts sports fans and concert-goers heading to Capital One Arena, and boasts numerous TVs for game-day viewing as well. A definitive element of the matchbox dining experience is the custom pizza oven that fires up signature thin-crust pizzas within minutes, and its surrounding pizza bar that offers a front-row view of the action. Outdoor seating along E Street offers plentiful people-watching in warmer months.

    Had a reservation which was confirmed via text multiple times. We arrived and seated and only then told that they have no pizza. At this point we had hungry kids and the idea of finding somewhere else to go seemed like a bad idea. They should have informed people with reservations as soon as their pizza oven broke earlier in the day and the hostess should have been informing people before being seated. We saw other groups come in only to get up from their tables and walk out.

    My friend and I were in DC for TEDxMidAtlantic at the Shakespeare Festival and needed to grab a quick lunch during the break. We were seated promptly, ordered promptly, served promptly, and got the check and paid promptly. The food was good, too. I had the Crispy Chicken Cobb Salad with a Diet Coke. The salad was delicious. The chicken was especially tasty. My friend had something off the brunch menu (we were there on a Saturday) and he raved about it. I would definitely come back.

    Mother’s Day Brunch here was a success!!!! The Brunch options were top tier & the flavors couldn’t be matched. Our servers were very polite, conscious of customer needs and but the cherry on top of a perfect dining experience. Thank you and we’ll see y’all real soon!

    Bartender was also our waiter and was more concerned with flirting than providing any level of service. It was not busy at all and we had to flag her down to order after being seated for 10 minutes and again to get the check. I ended up going up to the bar to finally get a glass of water. Never was asked how dinner was or if we wanted a second drink. Pizza was good enough, but there was literally no service.
