Metro accessible, affordable and large group friendly?

Hello all!

First time poster here. I am looking for a place to take a group of about 15 people for lunch on a Friday in mid-August. This is a group of students, so we're all on a budget! We had talked about going somewhere near the Gallery Place metro and wanted to do Rosa Mexicano. Their large group rate is $30-35 per person, which isn't horrible but perhaps too much for some students.

Does anyone know of some good restaurants near Gallery Place or another nearby metro station that might be more in our price-range, like $20/person and can accommodate a large group?

Thank you!

  1. 15 is not a large group. It's just a group, Almost no advance planning needed. Go to Full Kee, but I've also eaten well at Jacky Cafe and New Big Wong. All in Chinatown.

    1. There are a couple options near Gallery Place---maybe consider Hill Country BBQ. Perfect for large groups and there are various price options.

      The K Street location of Busboys and Poets can probably accommodate your group and there is lots of options there, especially if there are vegetarians in the group. Call ahead though to make sure they can put a table for 15 together.

      1. Thanks for the feedback, I'll look into those!
