Burger Tap & Shake Named Top DC Burger

Burger Tap and ShakeTenleytown newcomer Burger Tap & Shake had something to crow about today. FWx, the august Food & Wine magazine’s hipper online publication, dubbed the local chain’s burgers among the best in the city. Burger Tap & Shake was one of only eight restaurants to make the cut.

In singing BTS’ praises, FWx proclaimed:

This D.C. chain has successfully capitalized on the fast-casual concept by doing as much as possible in-house. Meaning: The ground beef, buns, pickles and even the ice cream in the milkshakes are produced under one roof. The house burger, the “Six Buck Chuck,” proves how satisfying simplicity can be, especially if the ingredients are of top-notch quality. You’ll also want to put their signature “AP sauce,” a savory blend of mayo, ketchup, mustard and chipotle, on everything. Everything.

Burger Tap & Shake has two locations in the District. The Foggy Bottom restaurant opened in 2011, while the Tenleytown spot opened this past July.

Burger Tap & Shake is located at 4445 Wisconsin Avenue, NW. Locals can sample the acclaimed burgers Monday through Thursday, 11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 11:00 a.m. to midnight, and Sunday, 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.
