Recently The Well Dressed Burrito invited Micky to come by and try one of their famous burritos but it's pretty tough for her to get out of work for lunch so she asked me to stop by. I've been hearing about this place for years, but somehow was never able to get there until this past Friday. Located just south of Dupont Circle in an alley off 19th St NW between M St and N St, this lunch-only Mexican spot has a rotating menu of fusion burritos and Mexican staples.
The Well Dressed Burrito pioneered the giant burrito in DC long before Chipotle showed up and they are still going strong today. Follow the sign off 19th Street or look for your fellow lunch goers coming and going from the alley.
Once I got in, I was surprised by how much seating there actually is inside. I was always under the impression that this was a take-out only place. It's not huge but there are a few tables and counter seating for about 8 people. The friendliness of the staff was also on display and you can quickly tell that they treat their many longtime customers like members of the family. If you are worried about waiting in line (though it appeared to move quick while I was there) you can also call your order in ahead.
It was also recommended that I try the roasted chicken or beef dishes, but by this point I was stuffed to the brim. I'll be sure to come back to make my way down the rest of the menu. I can't believe that it's taken me this long to eat at TWDB but I certainly won't let as much time pass before my next visit.
