On Father’s Day, there’s always a ton of pressure to take Dad to the best steakhouse in town (and rightfully so.) However, not all dads want to put on a pair of dress shoes to celebrate their special day. Some dads are just down for a great burger and fries – and luckily, we certainly that covered here in Washington, D.C.  

If you’re on the hunt to find the best burger spot in the city to take Dad to on Sunday, June 19, check out these Washington, D.C. burger joints near your Wray apartment for everything from a classic cheeseburger to a vegan black bean burger. 

Duke’s Grocery, located at 2000 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, D.C. which is an eight minute walk from your Wray apartment, is a neighborhood pub and supper spot where visitors can have a fulfilling meal, a tasty drink and a great time in an atmosphere that is unpretentious and laid back.

A nod to the corner cafés, bodegas and curry joints of East London neighborhoods, Duke’s Grocery’s culinary inspiration is as diverse as these brilliant parts of the English capital. The region’s funky juxtaposition of classic greasy spoons, hole-in-the-wall ethnic spots and ultra-sleek avant-garde restaurants has created a food scene that is truly unique.

Tonic At Quigley’s Pharmacy, located at 2036 G St NW, Washington, D.C. which is a four minute walk from your Wray apartment, is a bustling eatery that serves tater tots, burgers and other American comfort eats along with draft brews.

Richard Lucien Quigley opened a pharmacy here in 1891, one year after he earned a degree in pharmacy science. Until 1938, Quigley filled prescriptions and sold medicines, and later served Cokes and burgers at the lunch bar. Tonic at Quigley’s Pharmacy is honored to take up residence in the historic building, and it carries on Quigley’s commitment to good eats that heal today.
