This Georgetown smokehouse closed during the pandemic, and has now returned with a focus on pork burgers for lunch. These patties are juicy, with a caramelized crust from the flat top and a lightness that beef just doesn’t have. And while you could stack on toppings like house-cured kurobota ham, swiss cheese, and maple bourbon glaze, if you're here for one thing, it's the Plain And Simple, layered with yellow american and sweet special sauce that becomes one with the drippy pork juices. Rounding out the lineup of outstanding burgers are tasty deep-fried sides like cornmeal-crusted green tomatoes with jalapeño scallion buttermilk sauce and battered corn on the cob. This is a lunch worth canceling midday meetings for—or better yet, hosting here.
