Lucky Buns, in Adams Morgan, is a restaurant the neighborhood definitely needed - and not just because it provides a good drinking-food alternative to Jumbo Slice. It’s one of those really versatile places where you can have a casual date, go with a group of friends, or grab a solo burger at the bar and never think twice about it. Food-wise, Lucky Buns serves 12 different burgers and chicken sandwiches that are topped with things like green chili relish, bacon XO jam, and soy pickled cucumbers. While you’re deciding which one to get, order some thick-cut fries for the table, and a beer for yourself. This place fills up fast, especially on the weekends, so get here early if you can.
