Fodor's Review

This cheeky homage to mid-20th-century diners is styled after a newspaper office, with menus printed in broadsheet format and specials mounted on the wall in mismatched plastic lettering. But one bite of the grilled cheese with tomato soup or the "Burgh" burger, served on Texas toast with coleslaw, french fries, and a runny egg, will convince you that the kitchen's skills are no joke. Kids will love the 13 clever milk shake flavors, and their parents will love the nine extra shakes that come with a kick of liquor added. (The Nutty Professor, made with hazelnut liqueur, is worth writing home about, as are the homemade Pop-Tarts.) Check out a sister location in the hopping U Street corridor.
