Judging Restaurants – Snap

Snap opened up in Adams Morgan at 2475 18th St NW back in Sept. 2010. (They also have a Georgetown location at 1062 Thomas Jefferson St NW.) Back in Jan. a reader noted that they were closed during the day on weekdays at the Adams Morgan location. I’m happy to note that the Adams Morgan location is now open during the day on weekdays (the photo above was taken Monday afternoon).

Any fans of the Adams Morgan location?

    I’ve had the bubble tea there a few times and it’s hit or miss. Their flavors can seem diluted, although the green apple was great. Also, hate hate hate the folding tables and chairs. They’re really wobbly and uncomfortable!

    Love the Georgetown location, their outdoor seating is perfect in nice weather. The Adams Morgan location is usually closed or just really empty whenever I walk by..

    The one time I tried to go there the service was so bad that a half dozen people walked out before even getting to the front of the line.

    If I didn’t say it in the last post, I am convinced this place is a front. The G’town one NEVER has any customers and the something barely resembling “service” that I got the last time I tried to eat there made me think that they weren’t really all that worried about it.

    yeah, bad bubble tea, bad crepes, always empty. I don’t know how they stay in business. Or maybe I don’t want to know.

    Yep, every time I’ve been by it just looks like a picnic or a school cafeteria, so it’s never been appealing to go in.

    Food is serviceable. But, that’s not exactly enticing, is it? I like the concept and the “look” of the place (both inside and out). Unfortunately, it falls somewhat short on execution. The flimsy plastic chairs and tables and what can only be described as coarse rug stapled to benches does not make the space very enjoyable. While it has great corner nooks for people watching, it is impossible to sit comfortably in those corners. On weeknights, it’s packed with the laptop brigade… prolly overflow from tryst. Still, though not really designed for it, this isn’t a bad place to study.

    adams morgan/18th street really needs a rocklands bbq, btw.

    They are never open. No idea how they stay in business.

    It was a hit and then miss (and miss again) for me. First time, everything was on point. Second time, different people prepared the food. Figured that’s why it was bad. Went again, sucked again. Third time is the charm. I really wanted to like it but it was just not worth another try.
