Worst food experience during our 5 month tour of the states. The woman behind the bar is rude and doesn't listen. The only saving grace, barely, was the middle aged guy that served us. The chicken burger was dry and tasteless, and $5 for two...More

Very trans friendly. Somewhat sports oriented if you want to talk to people at the bar, so, ladies, read the Sports section before going. Handsome lawyer types at bar many nights. Policy wonky folks there, too, from GWU. Fab and Groovy to the max!

OK. The Bon has been around FOREVER. In 1980, they knocked down everything else on Red Lion Row, except the Bon. It has great burgers and sandwiches. You never know who or what you will run into there. It's takeout only. But you can eat...More

This place was recommended in our guidebook. We sat in a back patio where it was really grungy. My burger was decent. My kids got chicken tenders - they were awful. It was a pre-fab breaded chicken thing that had been cut up and refried....More

Ordered five different burgers, some fries, and a basket of excellent onion rings for a party of four. The burgers were great, but rather fatty and thus very filling. Putting these burgers on a freshly baked bun in stead of a factory baked spunge bun...More

This is a small pub restaurant. The food is creative and very good. The service is excellent. My husbands only complaint was the diet cola didn't taste good. We all ordered burgers and enjoyed them very much.
