Tasty Burger Opens in Shaw This Thursday, July 21st

From our friends at Tasty Burger...

Modern American Fast Food Burger Restaurant Brings Hot Dogs, Boozy Milk Shakes & More to DC

Tasty Burger, the beloved East Coast burger restaurant founded by three chef friends in 2010, opens its first District location in the historic Shaw neighborhood on Thursday, July 21, 2016 at 11:00 AM. The classic burger restaurant will be open daily with counter & bar service, free foosball, digital jukebox, takeout window, full bar with indoor & outdoor seating, and late night hours.

Named one of the best burgers in America by The Daily Meal and Business Insider, Tasty Burger sets itself apart from the burger pack by using all-natural, hormone- and antibiotic-free beef with fresh ingredients; not to mention the 15+ condiments available at every table, including Tasty’s very own homemade Spicy Ketchup. Tasty’s signature burger, The Big Tasty, is a 1/3-lb burger on a local bun from Gold Crust Baking Company out of Landover, MD, topped with cheese, lettuce, tomato, red onion, pickle and Tasty sauce. Other burger highlights include Spicy JalapeƱo, Chili Cheese, Gorgonzola, Rise ‘n Shine (topped with an egg), and the BBQ Onion. Hot Dogs, Salads, Chicken Nuggets, and Sandwiches like the Chicky Chicky Parm Parm (crispy chicken & tomato sauce topped with fried mozzarella and melted mozzarella) round out the menu with sides like Fries, Onion Rings, and Tater Tots.

The first location to offer a full bar, Tasty Burger Shaw’s cocktail, beer & wine selection reflects local offerings with microbrews from Atlas Brew Works, DC Brau, and Duckpin, as well as the Raspberry Gin Rickey cocktail, an updated boozy version of Tasty’s classic Homemade Raspberry Lime Rickey that pays homage to the gin rickey’s D.C. roots. Additional beverage options include the Tasty Bloody Mary (made with neighboring D.C. local business Bazaar Spices’ spice blend and Smoked Bacon Chipotle Salt rim), a Pickle Back (shot of whiskey & Tasty’s pickle juice) and the Shift Drink (Narragansett and a shot of Fernet Vittone), as well as adult milk shakes like the Grasshopper, the Monk (Melleti & green chartreuse), White Russian, Strawberry Daiquiri, and Pina Colada.

Tasty Burger’s signature aesthetic is also at play here in Shaw. The cheerful red & white 1800-square foot space features seating for 44, as well as 22 seats around the indoor/outdoor bar that opens up onto 8th Street thanks to giant garage doors. Local graffiti from around Shaw is highlighted through original photography. A 20-foot long custom mural features sheet music from D.C.’s own Duke Ellington. Other Tasty signature design details include a glass Coke bottle chandelier and a giant image of Samuel L. Jackson in “Pulp Fiction” eating his very own tasty burger.

Beginning July 21st, Tasty Burger Shaw will offer the following specials:
Starvin’ Student - Choice of Hamburger or Cheeseburger, Fries & a Can of Beer for only $10 (must show student ID)
