IAD: Good Stuff Eatery

Obama ate here, ’nuff said. A block from Capitol Hill, Good Stuff Eatery is literally behind his backyard. You know what, it is so good that my Vegan friends brought me here; I only found about the president’s love after that. And unlike a certain some president, who eats well-done steak with ketchup, President Obama’s […]

Wilmington, DE: Grub Burger Bar [Short]

In my opinion, Grub Burger Bar is a chain that serves one of the better, if not best, burgers and shakes in the country.

Unfortunately, I was never really a big fan of these chains. If I wanted burgers, I would have went to another local […]

Jake’s Wayback Burger

I was getting desperate. Having stayed in Newark, Delaware for more than a year, I was close to giving up on finding a good burger joint. Delawareans point to their beloved Charcoal Pit as their go-to burger place, but I wasn’t impressed (even though President Obama went there to try their famous milkshake). It didn’t […]
