It is not easy to find a cheap meal in this town, especially when you include alcohol. However, Burger Tap and Shake (BTS) is an inexpensive burger joint with great happy hour deals. I originally fell in love with this spot because I can add a fried egg as a topping.
BTS offers a variety of signature burgers for $8, but my favorite is the $7 Buck Chuck. This burger includes lettuce, pickles, onion, tomato and their house made sauce. Additional toppings – like fried egg, of course! – can be added for a dollar each.
As the name suggests, Burger Tap and Shake is also known for their shakes and shaketails with liquor added. However, since there are a variety of happy hour deals, I usually order a beer. They offer $5 beers Monday to Friday from 15:00 to 18:30, Monday to Saturday from 22:00 to close, and all-day Sunday.
Burger Tap and Shake has two locations: one in Tenleytown and one in Foggy Bottom.
