Good Stuff Eatery
Posted by Jeff on 09/03/2010
I think this food is DELICIOUS. That's not to say that it's perfect. It isn't the best burger ever, but wow... so good. First of all, I always get the melt with caramelized onions, mushrooms. It's super greasy, but this translates to tasty. It's not huge, but it's filling. I also am a big fan of the fries, and the shakes. Great stuff. (Guess I should say, Good Stuff.) The service isn't perfect. Had issues with the drink machine last I was in there, but otherwise I haven't had problems. I think it's too expensive, but I'm still getting used to paying more than $3 for a gallon of milk, too... so take that with a grain of salt I suppose. There's really not much to the atmosphere of the place either. Huge fan of hitting the Good Stuff after spending time on the mall/hill, but not a place I go out of my way to hit usually.

Try the Obama Burger. You should go for the burgers and shakes. The burgers are small, and I think price-wise you get more for your buck at Ray's Hellburger. Was not enamoured with the fries, but the flavored mayos made them better.

ABSOLUTELY the BEST bugers in DC. I am a local and these bugers are far superior to Five Guys.

Don't believe the hype. Locals know to go to Five Guys, BGR or Rays. This place is a rip off, a crime... A chef should know better. Spike is simply putting out cafeteria food to feed the masses.

This place is a the brainchild of Top Chef's persona Chef Spike. Overall the food is fairly good. The shakes are really good and the burgers are juicy. The fries used to be tremendous and crisp, but lately they have gotten sub-par. The Village Fries, once a staple have begun to be served soggy instead of the initial presentation when they first opened, crisp and loaded with spices. The assortment of free add-on mayos and dipping sauces are succulent and delicious, but the cost for two make the expectations higher than a 'burger joint' is able to deliver. The atmosphere is clustered with clean modern/retro appliances and ornamentation making it a pleasant dining experience, and the lines that form in order for the hipster/staffer/Hill dwelling clientele are well served by the staff. Expect a decent burger and go for the shakes. They're worth the extra few dollars on the bill if you're ready to shuck out a twenty for a burger, soda and fries.
