Thunder Burger & Bar
Nice Georgetown ambience. We sat next to an open window at the front of the restaurant and it was very pleasant. The service was excellent. The house remoulade was very tasty. The not so good part was our burgers. Both our burgers were undercooked and greasy. They say all burgers are cooked to a pink center but ours were served rare. Too bad since everything else was so nice.
Yearly stop when we stay in DC for the Easter Egg Roll. Food, drinks, and service are exceptional. Looking forward to making it 9 years in a row in 2020.
Delicious burger, great service - will definitely return!
It’s a great place for brunch on weekends. I got a grilled chicken sandwich and it tasted very good! Definitely suggest this place!
My favorite burgers in the DMV
We went there to watch March Madness and managed to get a table right by a TV -- perfect! Finished the evening in the bar area! Everyone was very nice and accommodating and the food and drinks were very tasty!
Loved it! Crab dip appetizer is a must and the service was awesome! I would definitely go back!
Food, service, atmosphere... ALL excellent!!! I'm from NJ and visited during Thanksgiving when we were in town. Was just back for a conference and this was the first dinner reservation I made for myself and three friends. EVERYONE thought this was the best dinner of our entire stay!!
Disappointing experience at a restaurant I normally love. Several servers forgot to help us or brought us wrong items. We were done with appetizer before they even came back to take our entree order. We went for a birthday and I had that in the reservation notes so that they could handle that and say something but no one did.
A bit pricey for a burger place. But the food was very good.
Best burger I've had hands down in the DMV area. Took my girlfriend after vising Unwind for a massage.
We've walked by this place countless times without stopping - until yesterday. Reviews said it had good burgers. And it does. They toast their buns, such a simple, yet often overlooked step in burger prep. The fries were just OK but would probably have been great had they come to the table hot. The bibb salad was excellent, fresh and with an extremely tasty dressing. Prices were reasonable and the service was very good and friendly. We had made a reservation only because we'd never been and didn't know how busy it got. All the walk-ins while we were there had no wait. I'd go again for the salad alone.
This is the second time I ate at Thunder Burger. Loved the burgers each time! They even had a gluten free bun for me and Brie cheese for the Burger! I wont forget the pickles! Heaven! I will continue to go to Thunder! Love it! Staff is friendly and very good service.
Good burgers (kind of pricey); relaxed/rustic vibe
Our server was great. It did take a bit of time for our food to come, but once it did the burgers were great. I will definitely be going back.
We both ordered medium well. Server was very apologetic but burgers came out blood rare. I was fine with mine but wife ordered chicken instead of remake. Fried mushrooms excellent, sweet potato fries good, and wings okay. My wife and I are not big into social media but our poor server had no back up from a manager, etc. Also I don't think mine was actually a half pound burger. More like maybe a third? Also we both ordered sharp cheddar cheese and got pepper jack. Again not our servers fault more the kitchen. Live and learn. It was okay.
Really disappointing first visit. To have been listed as having one of “DC’s 10 Best Burgers”, the Thunder Burger was underwhelming. The grilled onions were tough and bitter, the bun was soggy and there was surprisingly little flavor. I had read that grass-fed beef was on the menu, but it is actually free-range beef - for those who care, not the same thing. For all the shortcomings of the burger, the beer and fries were great - not enough to take me back a second time though.
Very good burgers, some of the nicest, friendliest servers in Georgetown @!
Waited 10 minutes; no hostess to assist; was never acknowledged or seated, left.
Great hamburger!! very large and came with 2 free sides. They put some sweet crackers on the table...yummy
A friend’s sons’s favorite burger place, so we had to try it.
The burgers were delicious cooked just right. All 4 of us had a different burger and no regrets. The cranberry slaw was very unusual and good. We would go back. The place was not crowded when we were there but the waiter did rush us a bit. Otherwise no complaints.
Had a yummy Impossible burger and super delicious sweet potato fries. The sauce that came with the fries was out of this world good!!
A bit disappointed in the quality of the food as I remember it being better a few years back. It felt kind empty and the food cost too much for what it tasted like. I get the sense they may be closing soon.
Our server was great and we sat right by the fire, which was perfect on a cold/rainy night. Thanks!
For a burger experience a level above
Consistently good food and service. Love the atmosphere, kind of rock-n-roll glam, but casual. It's fun.
My 15 year old and I enjoyed our dinner before the show at Kennedy center. The food was not only comfort food but delicious and the service the best.
This place should be your go-to for a great beer selection and phenomenal burgers. Awesome vibe.
Burgers are great!
Beer selection is fantastic!
Cleanliness always seems to be an issue.
It's ok. i didn't see anything worthy of the 4+ stars that it was getting.
Was there Saturday night 10/20/18. Really fun environment. Lights flickering in my eyes from ceiling, a little weird. My drink was supposed to be tea with mint and rum, no mint and very weak for $11. Our burgers were excellent! No paper towels in bathroom or a way to dry hands. But over all a fun place. They need to pay attention to the details.
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!
