So while in DC visiting a friend, I made mention that I wanted to stop by Spike Mendelson's burger joint just to try the toasted Marshmallow shake alone. Well, when it came time to even think about going to the eateries on my list, I couldn't remember any of them and I couldn't find the email, so I said oh well.

and needed to get lunch. Nevermind that it was steamy raining (thank you 100+ degrees + humidity and thunder storms) we followed all the office people down this street to try and find a lunch place. burgers, sure why not. As soon as I walked in, I knew. What else than a gigantic picture of the toasted marshmallow milkshake on the menu.I got myself a regular burger and the sweet onion petals. The burger was decent. I can see that it was fresh ground beef and other ingredients. Is it the best burger I had? no. I've definitely have had better.... but the petals were quite yummy.I like that there are options for mayos to put on your burger. Afterwards I went back for a shake. found out you can get a kids size shake in any flavor that they do. Obviously - I had to get the toasted marshmallow one. I was a bit disappointed that it didn't really taste like marshmallows, but it was a good thick shake. I would totally try Milky Way Malt. That just looked crazy good.The line wasn't crazy, granted we were there towards the end part of lunch, but not too late. It was still lunch time during the week during the summer. The people working were greatThere isn't a ton of seating, this is downtown DC afterall. There are a few barstools on the main floor, with most of the seating upstairs. We were quite lucky in finding plenty of seating.
