Do you have a craving for a juicy burger piled high with lettuce, tomatoes, and pickles? Head to one of these restaurants near our Forestville, MD apartments. Chefs grill the patties to perfection at these nearby eateries:

Good Stuff Eatery

At Good Stuff Eatery, it’s all about fresh ingredients and hip music that makes you sing aloud. The chefs buy locally and source the potatoes from a fourth-generation family of farmers. They begin their day before the sun rises to simmer the sauces, crack the eggs, and prepare a one-of-a-kind mayo bar. Guests enjoy views of the open kitchen, and the rustic dining room comes complete with reclaimed barn wood from a Pennsylvania farm. The restaurant is famous for its thick, juicy burgers with choices including Spike’s Sunnyside, Colletti’s Smokehouse, and ‘Shroom. 

Thunder Burger Bar

Thunder Burger brings an edgy, rock and roll dining experience to the heart of Georgetown. It’s perfect for date night or a leisurely evening with friends. Guests can take a seat at the trendy bar, in the graffiti-highlighted booths, or the ivy-covered library. Sunday evenings offer live acoustic music while the middle of the week brings Wild Wednesday, featuring a new wild game entree. In the kitchen, chefs grill the signature burgers to a warm pink center and serve them with fries, coleslaw, or apple potato salad. Choices include Ventura Highway, Sweet Caroline, and Born in the Wild. 


A Washington DC landmark, Z-Burger serves handcrafted burgers, fresh-cut fries, and 75 different milkshake varieties. It’s one of the most highly acclaimed restaurants in the United States and is a favorite of former President Bill Clinton. Chefs make the burgers to order, and diners can choose from an array of toppings, including sauteed mushrooms, jalapenos, and honey mustard.
