Notes and Photos for BED DigiDoc / History: The Burger Joint (BGR)

The Burger Joint Notes:

  • Hip, “run down” atmosphere- chill vibes
    • Exposed wire
    • Some of the wall is smooth but some has exposed brick which was painted white like the walls
    • Front window is large and bright
    • Kitchen is exposed and you can see the staff cook your food
    • Big light fixtures on the ceiling
  • Wooden tables with silver chairs
  • Paper towels instead of napkins
  • Sauces at the table
  • Music was a little loud
  • Line to order, order food, get buzzer, sit down at table, buzzer goes off you get food
  • Food presented on silver platter
  • Family oriented- some friend groups are here, but mostly families (at 1:30pm on a Sunday)
  • Friendly staff
  • Located in a small venue just off of the Dupont Circle, super easy to find
  • The place is cut in half by a wall that only goes as high as the tables- one half is where you line up to take your order, the other half is the seating area
  • Site is small so when it is busy I’d imagine it is hard to navigate
  • Not busy at all at 2:00pm on a Sunday
  • Space is very bright because of natural light from front window and the fixtures
  • The site is red, white, black
  • Wall decal includes the menu, a plaque award from the washingtonian- best burger in DC
  • U2 War print on wall next to exposed pipe
  • Two flat screen TVs
  • The police- Ghost in the machine album print
  • Foreigner 4 print
  • Food was good
  • The BRG website
  • Smells heavily of french fries
  • History of Dupont site
  • C-SPAN video
