Food on the Way to 930 Club

My friend and I are driving from Baltimore to Washington D.C. this evening to see a show at the 930 club, which is located at 815 V St. N.W. (intersection of 9th, V and Vermont streets.). Does anyone know of anywhere good to stop on the way for some quick, delicious and inexpensive food? I would really appreciate your suggestions. Thank you!

  1. Quck food can be found at Ben's Chilli Bowl, but better food if you have some more time is at 14th and T at Bar Pilar. Great tapas.

      Bar Pilar, great food, well priced - I'm a huge fan of this place

    2. There's an Irish pub just west and slightly north of the 9:30. You can almost see it from the front door of the club. This is a great place b/c you can park before the crowds arrive, enjoy a pint or two before hand (if you drink), eat some good food (the fish and chips are very good) and walk to the club.

      U street also offers so many other choices, especially Ethiopian. The must discussed Oohs & Aahs is also within a block or two, and I would rec that over Ben's - though go to Bens to see it.

        The Irish bar is Duffy's. It's pretty decent, and the service is nice.

          I second Duffy's. Get a parking spot near 930, walk to Duffys, and have the fish and chips and a Guinness. Then play some darts until showtime.

      2. Just in case that you run out of time and don't want to miss your show the 9:30 club does serve food and right around the corner is a McDonalds.

        1. You might want to avoid Ben's Chili Bowl. Although decent junk food, it's the last thing you need in your stomach during a concert where you might have to use the toilet.

          1. Thank you so much for the recommendations. We ended up eating at Duffy's. The burgers were good, and it was so close to the club that it worked out really well. The Guster concert was out-of-this world, by the way...just to throw that in there.
