Stopped in twice on a snowy few days in Georgetown. Thunder has that nice, non-chain "vibe", excellent and copious beer and burger options. Good mixed crowd - college students on a date, yuppies after work, grown up tourists (like myself) all having fun.

My co-worker and I were shopping in Georgetown and decided to stop in and eat at this quaint restaurant. We started out with the crawfish & crab dip appetizer which was really good. And then ordered burgers which were delicious. The food comes in generous quantities and the wait staff is very attentive. What a great find in Georgetown!! We... More

The atmosphere is a football baseball TV bar with typical burger food. Food is plenty when you order. This is definitely not a vegetarian place. but it is tasty and the service is friendly and fast.

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

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

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
