We came across this place as our party had just finished a long walking tour on the Mall, heading back to the Georgetown Inn. Our waiter was extremely attentive and gave us a list of specials. We decided to go with shared appetizers (edamame, roasted eggplant, chickpeas, tahini, veggies & pita bread, artichoke & spinach dip, and homemade beef chili... More

It is also located about a block north of The Chesapeake and Ohio Canal and several blocks north of the Potomac River. This restaurant is open for lunch, dinner and the bar is open late. The interior is interesting as it has a... More

Came back to Thunder burger. Had a great time. Service was great. The bartender Bernard did a great job helping my wife find a craft beer on our visit. Food was good and we had a great time with our server. A must stop when we visit DC

My wife and I stopped at the Thunder Burger Bar this past Friday and took advantage of their Happy Hour "Bites" menu. My wife had Wings(6) while I went with Beef Sliders (2) with a tasty remoulade sauce. The wings eventhough ordered medium were still a tad spicy but very good. I loved the burgers. At $5 per order on... More

A walking tour of Georgetown left us ready for lunch and we thought that Thunder Burger would be worth a try. The place was decorated for halloween so already in character. We found several nice wine options to start with. For appetizers we had the artichoch dip and the shrimp. the shrimp was spicy and good. The dip was also... More

Beer on tap list very impressive! Service was very efficient, friendly and helpful. Appreciated that on a busy Friday evening they could accommodate our change in plans with grace. We had burgers so can't comment on the rest. Meat on the burger was plentiful and perfectly cooked. Love the toppings listed so you build your own burger. Very nice cosy... More

On a search for the best burger in Georgetown we stumbled across this place. Delicious burger for sure at a cool price. This place has genuine flavor, no corporate, mainstream generic stuff here.

Thunder Burger has a fantastic, expansive menu of just that- burgers. There's something for pretty much everyone here, though they were also more than happy to let me make some off-menu customizations, like building my own turkey burger. The vibe of this place is just fun- they were playing great contemporary rock when I ate here, and all of their... More

Visited this morning as a family of four as soon as the bar opened for brunch, service was good but food took a while to arrive, one of the coffees was cold so we sent it back and one of our orders was wrong so sent back also! Wasn't even very busy so a little disappointing but was ok overall.... More
