As you guys probably know, the DC area (NoVA) is where Five Guys burgers and fries originally started 20+ years ago so we pretty much started the fast casual burger trend.

As such, what are your favorite burger spots in the area? Here are my top picks:

#1: Quarry House Tavern (Silver Spring, MD):

Amazing beer, burgers and tots-it is cash only but is pretty cheap. Absolutely delicious.

#2: Bareburger (Dupont Circle NW, DC):

This place recently opened but the brisket burger is incredible. Also relatively inexpensive for a sitdown restaurant.

#3: BTS (Foggy Bottom NW, DC):

This place is known for it's alcoholic milkshakes but the burgers here are all under $10 and are delicious.

The mushroom burger is the one I prefer from Good Stuff. Holy Cow in the Del Ray neighborhood is damn good. Love the cheeseburger from Red Apron Butchery though with fries, it's a bit on the pricey side.

Went to Good Stuff on Monday and had the Steakhouse Burger...I kind of expecting more?

Maybe I should have went with the Obama Burger since everyone has been suggesting that to me.

Good Stuff is kind of overpriced since the burgers are kind of small for what you pay.. The fries are amazing there though.

I thought my order of fries were alright...Had them with the Old Bay Dipping Sauce...May need to try this place one more time to make a true verdict on the fires.

I was tempted on ordering their Chili...But wasn't sure if it was going to be good or not.

BGR and Smash Burger pretty good. There's a ton of clones like these around northern va so you gatta try whatever their specialty is to judge it. BGR good at outside the box toppings like grilled pineapple. Smash burger has god sauce.
