The atmosphere is awesome. It's an eclectic mix of a historic basement with fancy lights and nice seats with a pinch of Rock n Roll. I ordered the Love Me Tender burger. Which has Kobe Beef Burger, With Tillamook Aged White Cheddar, Tomato & Remoulade, plus I got bbq sauce on the side. The burger was very very good. The... More

I definitely did have the best experience at this place. I came on a Friday evening (4/14/17) around 8:45pm. It was pretty busy, but we were seated pretty quickly as a party of 3. We ordered crawfish and crab dip, which came out cold. The server took it back and re-heated it. The three of us also ordered burgers. My... More

Group of friends met up at Thunder Burger and I had never been there. The service was friendly, efficient, and fun. Great selection of craft beers, and different burgers. Highly recommend one of the bison burgers .... Great place... we'll be back!

Many burger options and you can build your own. Some can get close to $20 but mine was 16 and it was amazing

We were walking by from the Georgetown area and back to Park Hyatt DC, there were few of us and we decided to try this place, because it was crowded. So we re seated very quickly, the servers was fast considering how full the place was. I just arrived from Indonesia and was not very familiar with the atmosphere, and... More

We visited on a Sunday evening and enjoyed the food and atmosphere here. The waiting staff were friendly and helpful, helping me and my colleague choose a good beer from the wide selection available. The burgers tasted great, I was impressed.

Stopped here for lunch on Saturday. Great atmosphere; excellent food and great service. We sat in the "green" room (some sort of astroturf on the walls! All the same, not distasteful :-) Ordered Jerk Shrimp, Fish and chips; Thunder Burger. All of the food was well cooked and very tasty. Good value for money and would definitely come back

There's not much I enjoy more than a good burger and cold craft beer after a long day of sightseeing, and Thunder Burger had all of that and more. They have an extensive menu of burger options and craft brews, and the sides were also delicious. The second time we went, we sat at the bar and enjoyed the hot... More
