Tune Inn of Capitol Hill
Posted by Pat O on 03/04/2013
My spouse and I went to Tune Inn this afternoon. I had the pork chop and collar greens and my wife had a cheese burger. We both had a glass of wine - Pinot Grigio. All was great. Service was prompt and courteous.

After watching the "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives " tv show, we knew we had to try this place. What a big mistake that was! The "Joe's West Virginia"-sandwich wasn't anything like the one they showed on tv, specially after we asked for their extra "signature sauce".The "Swiss Mushroom Onion Burger"-a tasteless, dry patty beef with burnt onion on top, and all this after we waited for LONG, LONG time, considering it wasn't that busy- very poor service!

I too was a staffer in the 80s and have many fond memories of lunch of greasy burgers and after work cheap beers. There was a classic grumpy waitress who would squeeze into the booth with you when taking your order. Sorry to hear it's changed - even DC needs a good dive.

As a Hill staffer in the early 80's, I remember the cheap beer, great burgers, and the unofficial theme song "You Never Even Call Me By My Name" by David Allen Coe; all just a short drunken stumble from the Hill and Capitol South Metro.

i was there as a congressional intern in the '70s and was charmed by how un-DC like it was. was back there in feb 08 and couldn't believe how upscale it had become by comparison. ARGH!

From my first visit in 1978 when a waitress through some silverware at me and said she'd be right back - to when I stopped by last week while in town - this place is a classic. Always had a rep for wait staff that appeared surly, always had great fried chicken and always had cheap beer. If you're on Capitol Hill, find the Tune Inn and stop in for decent food and decent service that is funny and at decent prices.

The Tune Inn is a dive. I used to go there just to be insulted by the waitresses (and they weren't imaginative). But they are open late, it's laid back so long as it isn't crowded, and is certainly an alternative to late night eating and drinking. However, stick with a burger. I ordered a chili cheese omelet on a quiet Sunday, and wasn't sure what I got. Eggs masquerating as scrambled, and a mess of chili and cheese whiz, stone cold home fries, and that's enough to be said. Reasonably cheap though, but the portions aren't that large.
