cookout grill on 14th st
I live right there. Its open. The other day they were passing out samples of the chicken and burgers and giving out menus. I tried the chicken and it was really good. Although, after living in DC for years, I'm spoiled when it comes to Peruvian rotisserie chicken type meals, they are on every corner in the DC suburbs. It was good but it wasn't home.
Went for lunch yesterday. Think Boston Market with fewer options.
It struck me as the sort of place that came up with the name first then threw a menu together to try to match it. They spent a ton of money on making the place look sleek, and have about 10 things on the menu. They specialize in chicken, fire-roasted on a spit. The chicken was good - but it wasn't anything to build a restaurant around.
As for everything else they cook, there is no "Grill" other than the flat top that you'd see at any lunch spot.
I will say that the fries were excellent - but that's about it.
