Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I ordered a Capital Burger looking for a fast but high-quality take-out option, and the result was better than expected. It only took them around ten minutes to have my order ready and the packed everything I need without even asking for sauces. The burger was cooked to the term I asked for it, appropriately seasoned and well presented. Definitely a must-try if you are around.

We stopped by for a late lunch the other day and it was sooo good. Our waitress, Amy was amazing. She gave us good recommendations. I got the Capital Burger and my husband got the bacon cheeseburger. We each got the Parmesan truffle fries as well. The entire meal was so good. The best burgers were have ever had. We also got desserts which were coconut cream pie and chocolate mousse in mason jars. Both delish!! We will certainly return . Loved our waitress and food!

Interesting joint. Lovely room that mostly tends to the convention crowd (nowhere good to park....they all just walk across the street from the Convention Center). In fact, I could say to go here just for the pleasant surroundings. As I ate at the bar by myself, not much to add on the service, as it was fine, and typical of what one gets when eating at the bar. Had their signature burger, and it was good....and their salad was even better. I would go here with a group, again because the surroundings were nice. Lunch for one with a burger, salad and a coke (and fries) was $29.70 before tip. Not cheap, and typical of a convention (expense account) located establishment.

I didn't take a picture of my gluten free burger (Roasted wild mushrooms with 'substituted' gruyere cheese), because the moment I saw it I had to take a bite... And I couldn't stop eating it! OMG it was purely divine! Not to mention the service from Destiny and Glamore was incredibly warm and inviting. Destiny was kind enough to tell me her "go-to's" and I wasn't disappointed. Everything was amazing and I had to get another order of red chilly glazed chicken wings, because they blew me away. Simply said, EAT HERE! The staff and food will exceed all of your expectations. - Leo

Upscale Burger Bar with High Quality burgers and perfectly seasoned French Fries. The service is beyond immaculate we had the most wonderful waitress who was super accommodating and took and extra 5 minutes to let us in on the best spots in the area. We ordered 3 different cheeseburgers and all were cooked absolutely perfectly. We ordered them well done and damn they were some juicy burgers, this is something most restaurants just cant get right. I get it, medium is the way you are "supposed" to eat a burger, but if cooked properly a well done burger gives that extra texture that a medium burger just doesn't have. The Milkshakes and Fries are right on par with the burger and dont get lost in the mix. Yes the prices are kinda high but this is a case where I think you are actually getting what you pay for.. They are doing burgers right, on par with great burger places like Gordon Ramseys Burger in Las vegas. Parking was terrible but that can be said for everything in the area. I recommend you dont make the same mistake I did and park in the parking garage, $30.00 later and lesson learned. Overall if you are looking for a good burger and a great Lunch this is the best spot in DC hands Down!

I was attending a conference at the convention center and this is really close and convenient. Sat at the bar for lunch and didn't fancy a burger, but should have known better. I opted for the GRAND CRU GRILLED CHEESE Wisconsin Grand Cru Gruyère, Vermont Cheddar, Candied Smoked Bacon with tomato soup - I'm copying this from the website! Service was fast and food arrived quickly but i didn't notice any Gruyere or bacon in my sandwich! it was still good but not what was on the menu. Did not have time to return and wait for another one, so ate it and went back to work. I was in and out within 30 minutes, so that was good. I would go back as I have had great meals here before and like I said the food was still good, just missing a couple of things.

Walked in on a Saturday night just before it for very busy and were shown to our table. Great personal service from our server. Order drinks, a starter to share (Kung Pao Brussels Sprouts) and Southern Style Fried Chicken Sandwich and a Roasted Mushroom and Swiss Burger. Starter was flavoursome and recommended (if you like sprouts !!). Southern Style Fried Chicken Sandwich was excellent as was the burger however this is where the “problems” started. We had ordered both mains with Sea Salt Fries however both arrived with Caesar Salads. Quickly brought to the attention of the waiter and he apologised and quickly changed the dishes in a dash to the kitchen. The burger was superb, but again, however after a few bites it was obvious there were no mushrooms on it and a quick check revealed it was pinions and we’d been served The Capital Burger instead of what was ordered. By the time we got a hold of our waiter the burger was nearly finished. Fortunately I also like onions !! Waiter was mortified and very apologetic and offered to charge it again. However, no attempt was made to offer a complimentary drink or discount the bill. As I said not a major issue as I live onions too but what i didn’t or was allergic to them. The only not on a very good meal.

Food, serice & atmosphere all top knotch but the best part was the variety of whiskey on the shelf. We sat at the bar and promtly greeted by one of three bartenders. Had a cocktail before ordering food, never felt like we were rushed. After an excellent meal, we sampled a couple of the single malts. All in all a ery enjoyable dining experience.

Excellent burgers, service, clean, friendly waiter, answer all questions we have since this was our first time here. We ate at The Capital Grille earlier and a staff told us to go here if we are craving for a gourmet burger. It was a late lunch but early for dinner so it was perfect. No need to wait. Note. The next day we came back for dinner, it was packed and long wait so we went to a pizza restaurant. I will review that later. Burgers were cook just like requested, juicy, hot and full of flavors! Definitely recommend this place if you are in this area. Walking distance to DC City Center, the Capital One arena and Chinatown.

Came here with my cousin after checking in to our hotel, which was right around the corner. It was after noon right around the lunch crowd started arriving. We were seated at a booth right away and given a moment to look over the menu while some water and fresh made pickles were brought to our table. I ordered the classic cheeseburger and my cousin had the veggie burger. We both enjoyed our meals and were very happy with the quality of the food and service.

Absolutely, positively one of the best burgers I have ever eaten. The service and food were spectacular from start to finish. Seth, our server, was very engaging and offered customer service that you would normally receive at a fine dining restaurant. The Capital burger with candied bacon added will leave you full and completely satisfied.

Stop by here for lunch with my son after visiting the car show. The place was busy but we only had to wait a short time. The burgers look really good but I’m not a burger guy so I have a grilled cheese and tomato soup. My son had a chicken sandwich and we enjoyed both meals.

Very disappointed! We went for an early dinner 5:30. My first clue should have been when I used the restroom before being seated and it was not clean with no hot water. The service was slow and our waitress seemed “bothered “ by us requesting more water. The burgers were alright, but very small.... nothing special. We won’t be back!

Found Capital Burger by googling "food near me" and I am very glad we did because the food was great. I will say, the service could have been better. We were seated right away, but it took about 20 minutes to place our order. The food came in normal time, but it took another 20 minutes to get the bill and our due change. I'll just say, our server didn't receive a very nice tip. I wouldn't let the slow service stop you from the great food though.
