Best Restaurants by Every D.C. Metro Stop

Best Restaurants by Every D.C. Metro Stop

You may not be able to eat on the train (we don’t need a DC pizza rat), but hopping on DC metro could be step one to a fabulous culinary adventure. To help make it easy, the HungryLobbyist.com team put together your new go-to cheat sheet for the best places to eat no matter where your train stops (here’s looking at you weekend single tracking!). We also won’t tell anyone if you Uber to these great places instead. Rest assured, you’re going to have a great meal at all of the following spots.

*Disclaimer: this list in no way guarantees your metro car will a) ever arrive at your destination; b) won’t catch fire; c) won’t take 56 hours. Good luck riders!
