One of the quirky traditions of this homegrown fast-food burger house is to note on the menu board where the potatoes for that day's fries come from, be it Maine, Idaho, or elsewhere. The place gets just about everything right: from the grilled hot dogs and hand-patted burger patties—most folks get a double—to the fresh hand-cut fries with the skin on and the high-quality toppings such as grilled onions and mushrooms. Add an eclectic option for vegetarians, who are
welcome to cram as many toppings as they can onto a bun, and you've got a unique fast-food experience. There are a dozen locations around the D.C. metro area including Dupont Circle, Downtown, Columbia Heights, Arlington, and Bethesda.
