The overall experience was very nice. The food was very tasty and we enjoyed it. The burgers are excellent. The waitress was funny and shared some have a her life with us. I would return to this place.
Brunch was great, specifically went for the frites they make just for brunch! Great brunch spot if you want more lunch foods for brunch.
Excellent offering of tapped beers. Customs burgers done perfectly. Great service. Definitely the go-to burger and brew bar in Georgetown.
Very good burgers ! Kobe beef and bison.
Very nice service
Food was very enjoyable but service was poor and staff had to be asked for menu, sauces and there were omissions on the order. Food itself was very good.
It is a good value type of restaurant! Friday night was a really loud night at the restaurant! Bar area had so much fun and they ver yelling. Maybe too much for drinks... it is a mediocre burgers.
Great food and neat atmosphere!
Eclectic furnishing and exposure of the building construction gives Thunder charm. The menu is a fun twist on burgers and much more. The portions are great sized and presentation simple however the flavors could be tweaked a bit to improve the food. Had 2 people with and they felt the same... more salt in one, bit light on the complexity of a falafel burger etc. Service was the downfall. Rushed to move thru the meal, plate taken before done, check dropped during food etc. Give it a shot if you are looking for comfort food and I hope the service improves.
We had burgers and ribs and they were pretty good. I was not happy with my drink. I asked for a gin and seltzer and I was sure they made gin and water. They made me another and it was the same. I asked bartender to show me what he was mixing the gin with and it was seltzer from the tap which was flat, I order this all the time so I know what it is supposed to taste like. The other mixed drink we got was fine.
Great atmosphere complemented by friendly service staff and amazing food. Topped off a great visit to DC.
I’d also like to add that Kate our waitress was exceptional she knew the menu inside out and never rushed us at all
Nothing fancy, but the burgers were tasty and the beer was cold. I'd go back for sure!
Forgot half the tables order so we had to spit out food and they gave no reimbursement nor did they offer anything.
Good was excellent! Excellent selection! Great to have the offering of pastured beef!
Katie our server was outstanding and so were all
The staff there.
The only negative was the cigarette smoke and some off-colored language from the bar area:
First time eating here....had a gift certificate. Was very pleased. Burgers were fabulous and offer many options for delicious toppings. Would definitely eat here again. We were lucky to be there on a nice day. We had a window seat with an open window and loved being able to watch the activity on M Street in Georgetown. Wait staff was excellent! Would love to eat here again!
The food was amazingly good. I LOVE the fried mushrooms and chicken bites with red pepper ranch dip
Took my son and friends there for dinner after finishing up their freshman year @college. THEY LOVED IT. I had an amazing turkey burger, the waiter was wonderful and attentive. We will be back.
The staff was nice, the food was subpar. The burgers were dry, even when asked for medium well. The fries and the mushroom potato soup were great, though. But to be a burger spot, that shouldn’t mean your appetizers and sides are better than the main course.
Wonderful burgers. Very friendly restaurant. We had a really great server who was very attentive to us
We’ve walked by many times and thought it looked like a dark and uninteresting bar. We decided to give it a try for a casual dinner based on the ratings, and we all liked it a lot. Cozy inside because there are different rooms/sections, and the food was very good. We’ll go back.
Only complaint was music is too loud for a large party. Otherwise it was awesome. Great burger!!!
Considering that it had Burger in the name, we were expecting a really really good burger to have for dinner. After looking at the menu and seeing over 10+ specialty burgers with all kinds of meats (Elk, Kobe, etc.), we knew we picked the right place...or so we thought. The burgers were not that great and we actually couldn't even finish more than half of what was brought out. My date said hers had a weird smell to it. My burger had so much juice that the bun became soggy and really unappetizing altogether. The fries were also just bland and not good. I would have had a better burger at Shake Shack, actually, even Burger King. Would avoid this place if you are looking for a burger.
Really enjoyed our visit to Thunder Burger! We all loved the vibe of this place. Burgers and fish and chips were great. Beer menu was diverse. Prices were reasonable for DC. Morgan was our server and she was awesome! Would definitely recommend!
They had a great soft shell crab special. The drinks were on point. Most all things were delectable but 2 of the burgers were over cooked. One was supposed to be medium rare and the other was supposed to be medium. Neither had pink in the middle. All other entrees were good. Service was excellent but the music was a bit loud eventhough it was a nice playlist.
Great Service starting from the host station to the bartenders and servers. Food was great, moderately priced, nice selections. Table seating is tight making for a good conversation with the adjacent table. We will be back!
Amazing food in a very well decorated atmosphere
Excellent food, drinks and service! Two of us had the Thunder Burger, and one of us the crab cake. All were perfectly prepared and hit the spot after a lot of walking that day. We will definitely add it this restaurant to our Georgetown rotation!
They forgot our nachos
Service was fantastic.
Visiting DC from Minnesota, this was a great place to warm you up! The food was terrific, service great and the atmosphere lively. We would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting a great burger and fries.
Had brunch here, really enjoyed the Eggs Benedict, friendly service, and very nicely priced mimosas and bellinis! Would def. come back.
Welcoming staff, awesome food and great people. Highly recommend it.
While they were able to accommodate a larger party than you can normally reserve for, we found service to be somewhat inattentive. The burgers were decent, but beyond the variety, I found myself craving Five Guys. Obviously a different type of experience, and not a 100% fair comparison, but it happened nonetheless
The burgers are always perfect! Even the specialty burgers like the chicken or falafel are amazing too. Great fries as well.
Ate there during college tours. Disappointed they wouldn’t extend happy hour to our table vs the bar. Place was empty. I would have had several more drinks if they did vs the one drink. Burgers were just ok. Not worth price. Plus bottom of buns were so greasy and wet when burgers arrived. Pulled pork quesadillas-pork was good, Little odd tasting. I liked, son and wife didn’t. Cheese was either melted away or non existent.
Overall this place was o.k., but not worth going out of your way for. we were there during this past President's Day weekend, and it was very busy. The service was a bit too rushed. Our appetizer came and while we were still eating it, our burgers came. I don't like this kind of timing, I want to enjoy my meal at a more leisurely pace. My son had the bison burger which he liked very much but he asked for medium and it was definitely rare. Mine was cooked properly. The food was tasty. I do feel my gin and tonic was a bit weak... I liked the decor very much, we were in the room at the very back that has "fake grass" walls, and the noise level was much lower, which was great for us because we wanted to talk. Overall, the food was tasty but it was just a bit rushed. by the way, it was so busy that the ladies restroom lacked toilet paper. I mentioned it to the hostess but she said they knew but they were all too busy to take care of it. Honestly, there needs to be someone who takes care of something like that no matter how busy you are! i still recommend this place because the burgers were tasty and the atmosphere fun, but they need to work a bit on service.
Tables were on top of each other. Guy next to me kept sneezing made me very uncomfortable.
Eat the corned beef hash every time in the area (twice a year)! It's just one of those things you eat and can't wait to eat again, but only available for brunch on Saturday and Sunday. The service is always great and Mike is especially attentive and personable without being intrusive. Give it a try, but prepare to become addicted!
From the moment you walk in the door you are treated with the most comfortable ambience of any restaurant in DC. The layout gives off an old tavern vibe with a medieval vibe. Weird, I know, but lovely. We all had the “Love me tender” burger which is a kobe beef burger. It was phenomenal! This place is definitely worth a visit.
First time for dinner. Food was great, service was friendly and accommodating, atmosphere was fun, noise and crowd increased quickly after 6:00pm but was energetic, was perfect for a small group. Would come back.
The service from the hostess to the waiter was fabulous. The turkey burger was too dry for my taste but my friend's burger w the egg was perfectly done. Experience wise, while waiting for our table we did experience unpleasantness from another patron but. No point in the long story but gist is that the company you keep whether a person or an establishment says a lot about you- there were 2 guys at the bar who should have been cut- off long before we showed up.
