[DC Metro Area] Sloppy Joe's?

Any place to find a good quality sloppy joe sandwich in the metro area?

  1. I'm guessing that the Weenie Beenie may have them? Makes me long for the loose meat in the Midwest.

    1. Not a sloppy joe, but flavors reminiscent to it: Eventide's bison sliders. They really reminded me of a good sloppy joe.

      1. G Street Food in Foggy Bottom does one. Having never had it myself, I cannot vouche for it, but my friend really liked his. The menu changes a lot but the sloppy joe seems to be a staple.

        I second ktmoomau's post about the bison sliders at Eventide- delicious!! Another messy, insane sandwich that may bring back the same food memories as a sloppy joe (and also in Arlington) is the buffalo meatloaf sandwich at ScrewTop. It is amazing- gooey and cheesy and even a little spicey. I highly recommend it.

        1. re: JAC13

          What kind of sloppy joe are we talking about?

          The ground beef-tomato sauce sandwich (a la Manwich).

          Or the triple-decker deli sandwich with turkey, corned beef, roast beef, Russian dressing, swiss cheese and cole slaw? At least, that's what those of us from New Jersey call a sloppy joe.

              Definitely the ground beef variety (and hopefully better than the Manwich iteration).

          1. lola's on barracks row has good sloppy joe sliders.
