There is nothing quite like having a mind blowing burger. Burgers are such “normal” foods but when you get a good one, it can really blow your mind. After six years eating my way around DC, I have finally decided that my top two favorite burgers areeeee….
…drum roll please…
1. Duke’s Grocery
This is pretty non negotiable. Any DC-ite will tell you that Duke’s is where it is at. Whether it is the classic Proper Burger or the Brunch Burger, you really can’t go wrong. I think what does it for me, is the sweet chili sauce they use on their burger. It brings an amazing sweetness and something unique to an American staple.
2. Salt- N-Pepper Burger at Wet Dog Tavern
Let me give you some background info on this one- Wet Dog Tavern is a bar in DC that houses a burger shack on their back patio. A Michelin Star chef from NYC came down and opened this little spot and is serving up some pretty incredible patties. Not only is it a total luxury to be at the bar AND your drunk food destination at the same time, but these burger are unreal. They are simple and clean and have a uniqueness to them; thanks jalepeno jam! Not to mention they come with home made potato chips.
