Good Stuff Eatery - capital hill

Haven't been yet. Any reviews?

  1. Plenty -- search the board for reviews from last year and earlier this year.

    1. Limited menu which consists of burgers, rosemary fries, chili, and milkshakes. Have not tried the beef burgers or the chili. Mushroom burger is excellent, small but tasty, can't get past that. Toasted marshmallow milkshake is BEST milkshake of my life. One of the great things to eat in the DC area. Millky Way milkshake also outrageous. Rosemary fries, like fries anywhere else, can be great or not depending on your timing, luck.

      1. re: Steve

        Completely agree with everything you mentioned Steve....particularly the toasted marshmallow and milky way milkshakes, and the mushroom burger...yum.
        Other great menu items include the 'Obama' burger and their wedge salads

      2. The milkshakes are seriously good! The toasted marshmellow is very good but the black and white is delicious as well.

        I like the herbed farmhouse fries as well.

        The burgers seem a little inconsistent though. The first time I went I had a great burger--just a regular cheese burger. Nice crust on the outside, perfectly cooked, a little messy but in a good way. The 2 other times I went it wasn't as good. Not bad but not like the first time either. It felt a lot more sloppy, almost soggy. No crisp crust on the meat. Maybe this had to do that I carried it back to my office for lunch, but my office is only 10 minutes away.

          I guess the black and white is choc and vanilla?

          1. re: Steve

            A black and white traditionally (or at least, traditionally in the Northeast) is chocolate syrup and vanilla ice cream-- a great combination!

            1. re: Doh

              Yes vanilla ice cream with chocolate syrup. I'm from the Northeast...I'm guessing that's why I call it a black and white (never heard it called anything else.)

        2. we went last week - very tasty, and my boyfriend who doesnt really like mushrooms did like the veggie burger. I DO wish there was one more option for veggie burgers.

          I love the fries and dips, but personally like longer cut, and more crispy...but still good.

          Great shake - we shared one, but then I realized we could have had 2 kid sized and tried another flavor besides toasted marshmallow.

          faster service than when I went one time before, but it's not 'new' anymore. and it is always nice to sit outside.

            bordeauxfan - I did a search and one or two things came up such as: "where to take a picky 7 year old" - but no thread just about this place. If you know of one, please steer us all towards it. ;)

            The toasted marshmellow milkshake sounds tasty. I've never even heard of one - but now I want to try it. I haven't been so thrilled with zburger or 5 guys - so I'll give this one a try. I still need to try Ray's Hellburgers too though!

            1. re: Jeserf

              I agree about the fries. They are delicious but too short.

                1. re: beauxgoris

                  Is there a burger (version) that seems to be a hit?

                  1. re: beauxgoris

                    I've always gotten to Farmhouse Cheese (w/ cheddar NOT American...blech) and as I said above, sometimes it was good and others it was only so-so. It's been awhile since I've had a burger there though.

                    Some of the special burgers sound good though.

                    1. re: Elyssa

                      Finally went today. Husband had the melty cheese burger, I had the Obama burger. Both were good (could taste the lawry's season salt on the burger tho) - the blooming onion petals were very good, although a bit greasy (needed to blot) and the marshmallow milkshake was very sweet (sweeter than I thought it would be) but also good. It actually tasted exactly like banana pudding if it were a milkshake. Odd huh? All in all good marks - although a medium long wait. I guess it's better than a pre-cooked burger though. I do like BRG in bethesda's more charred flavor though.

            2. I've been a few times... Burgers were consistently good. Not greasy, well cooked, etc. Fries have been so-so at best. Onions petals might be the way to go...

              Plus, there's something to be said for having a mayo bar....

                ^^We ordered the onion petals and they WERE good. The table next to us got fries and we were glad we went with onion, they looked better imo.

                1. re: congressionalfoodie

                  I'm not sure how you can say that this place is either consistently good or that they aren't greasy. If anything, they are consistently greasy. It is an overpriced mess of a burger. While the marshmellow shakes are good, they certainly aren't the best shakes ever. For a great gourmet burger go to Ray's Hellburger.
