Duke’s “proper burger” is the stuff of DC legend. And while some legends are overhyped, some are hyped just right. Luckily, Duke’s burger is the Goldilocks of hype. The little row house has beer garden seating outside, a few tables at the bar downstairs, and a small dining room up top. The rest of the menu is exactly what you’d expect from an upscale pub (buzzwords include truffle oil, runny egg, and garlic aioli), and has lots of cocktail and liquor options. No reservations, so come early or prepare yourself for a long wait.
