After a plane ride and short drive from Baltimore we were hungry and this place we had to check out because of Diners Drive-Ins and Dives! My husband had in everything omlet I had the corned beef and hash. The food was good and prices even better. It truly is a bar with some seating in the back, so we... More

Went here after touring DC all day and had the loaded fries and wings along with a long island iced tea. The Fries were decent, the wings were mediocre, but the long island was good.

Decent service. Average food. Little pricey for the serving size. Sweet potato fries could use a little extra seasoning.

Unfortunately, after a local recommendation and good reviews, we didn't get to have our breakfast here simply because of not having been acknowledged of our presence in the diner. We saw there were not available tables at the moment, raised the hand to ask "how long the wait", got the wait a moment sign with the hand and eventually chose... More

not pretentious and great service - what you see is what you get. Cold beer and good food. The Rueben was excellent and the best fried pickles in town.

Arrived in DC on a Sunday and was staying around the corner. We were restricted by who was open but luckily the Tune In was. Decent home cooked food and a very friendly Anglophile waitress!

This restaurant had a fire some years ago but was restored more or less to its old funky self with stuffed deer heads on the wall. Very casual, very welcoming. People from the neighborhood come to watch sports on tv and cheer for local team. Food is simple but mostly good.

Loved the fried mac and cheese, burgers, fried shrooms and server. We usually don't eat fried food, but we went all out here!! Advice: 'Go' before you go. Nuff said.

Not a huge place, kind of a hole in the wall where you probably wouldn't stop unless you're a local or have heard about it from Guy's DDD. The food is fantastically comforting - great quality, just greasy enough, and delicious. We went as a family on a Sunday late morning / early afternoon. My son had chocolate chip pancakes,... More

Discovered Tune Inn after a visit to the Folger Library. Great place to pop in for lunch, coffee or a beer. Long, narrow restaurant with bar up front and booths further on. Eclectic menu serving soups, salads, burgers and plate lunches. I had the meatloaf plate. Very tasty and a big hunk of meatloaf! Served with mashed potatoes and a... More
