So we had this Idea. That food can bring people together in a bunch of different ways. Neighbors with neighbors. Locals with local ingredients, and bourbon lovers with bourbon worth loving. In 2006, our idea became; B--Burgers--Beer--Bourbon. People come here to be here. They come for good beer, cool surroundings and one burger to rule them all. Gathering is what we do. B is where we do it. Good times, made locally.

    The wait staff/hostess seemed irritated by the fact that we wanted a table, and wanted to order things. There were zero pleasantries and every time the waiter did actually come over to attend to something, his responses were short and fairly unhelpful. At one point, he came by to inform my friend that they were out of gluten free rolls. All he said was "we're out of rolls, want lettice?". Later, when the roll (with the upcharge) was still on the bill, we asked for it to be taken off and he got very defensive and stormed off. The food was great, that burger menu was really good, but the service just did not make us feel welcome there. We might have stayed for more drinks and spent more money, but the attitude of those working there made us feel like we should just finish dinner and go. I would probably not go back

    The fries came out cold and my date asked our server to heat them up, but the server made a face like “are you serious” and clearly thought it was a stupid request. But she ended up bringing out fresh fries so I guess it’s fine?

    Met with a friend for a belated birthday dinner. Waiter was quick to ask if I wanted a drink and checked in several times while I waited for my friend to arrive. Quick to take food orders after her arrival and the meal came fast and hot. I ordered the fish sandwich and it was amazing! Good low-key atmosphere and chill yet attentive waiters. Amazing food and even better brews. Would recommend.

    The burgers were really good & the service was quick. The fries were not hot, maybe because they serve a lot of customers. I actually ordered the fresh greens instead of fries but the waiter made a mistake so I didn’t get the greens. We would definitely recommend the burgers here if you want something different than the norm.

    Seemed like a great spot for happy hour, but that is only offered in the bar/lounge area. This was only really explained after a less than friendly hostess ran us to a table and tossed the menus down. It took awhile to get service with lots of wait staff walking by and not acknowledging us. When we did get service he wreaked of smoke and had a very strange affect. Nonetheless, the burger and brew were good. All in all I'd say a nice happy hour stop with some tourist trap vibes.

    A great place for gluten free dishes, many of which are difficult to find elsewhere. You can order GF onion rings, fried fish, and wings, just to name a few. The staff is very friendly and helpful. This is one of our go-to spots near Capital One arena!

    Delicious burgers! This is my second time eating here, and I was very impressed both times. The first time was with families, and there were plenty of options for children. This time I was dining alone, and wanted low-carb options and there were plenty. (Pictured: I had a burger stuffed with bacon and cheese, on a bed of lettuce, with Brussels sprouts and a low-sugar vodka cocktail). The burgers are excellent, as are the cocktails! I will definitely be back as often as possible.

    I always judge a good burger restaurant by the fries - hot versus tepid or cold and this place always gets it right. Their sweet potatoes fries, fried green beans, french fries and tater tots are always hot, crisp and yummy. Burgers are always cooked perfectly and so many great choices. Definite casual good value good food burger bar.

    After travelling around Washington DC for nearly a week, the waitress asked us for ID and being 37 we didn't have one. In all the bars and restaurants we went to we were never asked once. There are plenty of amazing restaurants nearby so just avoid this one. We were very insulted and embarrassed so we left, the waitress couldn't have cared less. Avoid

    Very poor service. The waiter kept forgetting to bring drink menus, my pregnant friend was unable to eat her burger because it was not cooked well enough, both our salads came out wrong, on "National IPA day" they were all out of EVERY IPA by 6pm, and the waiter spilled sprite all over the woman at the next table. It was not an enjoyable experience.
