DC Day One: Good Stuff Eatery

To read my first post on my trip to Washington D.C., click here.

I’m so excited to tell you about and show you more from my trip to Washington D.C.! When planning our trip, my mom asked everyone going what their priorities were. My one and only request? To eat at Good Stuff Eatery.

We ate there a couple of years ago while in D.C. and I have never stopped thinking about it! I could go on and on about it and my love for it, but I’ll try to keep it short. 🙂

Good Stuff takes pride in making “handmade burgers, hand-cut fries and handspun ice creamshakes.” Let me tell you, they do all of those things so, so well.

Both times I was there I ordered the ‘shroom burger and was sooo happy with it! It is a cheese stuffed, flash fried portobello mushroom cap, thrown onto a bun with onion, tomato, lettuce and Good Stuff Sauce. I’m not sure what is in the sauce but I do know that it is perfect for the burger and just so good.

The fries are hand-cut and delicious. I ordered Spike’s Village Fries which are topped with fresh thyme, rosemary and sea salt. So, so good. Especially dipped in an array of different mustards offered at the condiment bar.

And. The milkshakes. I can’t possibly tell you how good they are. Thick, creamy and so full of flavor. This time I tried the toasted marshmallow shake and the salty caramel kiss shake. They were both out of this world good but the salty caramel kiss is still in my dreams! Is that weird? 🙂 It had the perfect balance of sweet caramel and salt all swirled into a thick dreamy milkshake.

You have to try Good Stuff if you are ever in the D.C. area. Also, good news for me, I found out that a Good Stuff is opening in Philly. I can’t wait for that day!

Now that I’ve told you all about it, let me show you. Some scenes from our first evening.

The crew. Mom, Dad, John, Shawn, Erin, Greg and me.





The good stuff.
