Thanks to a reader for sending. You can see the All About Burger Menu here. Back in April the Washington Business Journal reported:

“Peter Tabibian, founder of the quirky Z-burger chain of restaurants, keeps the rights to use the brand name going forward, per a legal settlement with his former business partners.

In addition, Tabibian will also retain two of the burger chain’s original six restaurants: the first-ever Z-Burger in Tenleytown and the Columbia Heights location. Four others — in Clarendon, Glover Park, Southwest Waterfront and White Marsh — will continue to be owned by his former partners, Mohammad and Ebrahim Esfahani, but they will be rebranded in the next 60 days.”

    often gets overlooked in DC burger discussions, but Z Burger is damn tasty.

    • ah

      +1. Much better than 5 guys. Gourmet? Not really, but if I want gourmet, I’m not eating a burger, let alone one that costs $18.

      Excellent fries and shakes too.

        +1 on the Z Burger love. Also I’m convinced Five Guys is only good in VA, particularly the Woodbridge location. I’ve tried a good majority of their locations.

    Z-burger has gone downhill maybe it was to pay the legal bills. I have noticed price hikes in recent years. Lamely, they just stick the new price over the old price on menu with barely even trying to hide it. On top of that they used to have their yummy z-sauce available with the ketchup but now they keep it behind the counter and are stingy about it when you ask for extra.

      I thought I was going nuts when I saw their cheesesteak was almost $8. I could have sworn it was in that 6-7 dollar range.

      • ah

        Yeah, but food prices are up everywhere.

  • I’ve only been once, but it was barely a generic step above crap.

      Agreed. Went once (CH location) and thought it was garbage, and I don’t consider myself much of a food or burger snob. Milkshake was pretty good though.

        I always thought the Tenleytown location was better for some reason, food-wise. But I stopped going when one of their middle-aged male employees tried to hit on me. Gross.

    Pretty forgettable burgers. The onion rings were an early selling point but turned out to be nothing special.

  • SWChick

    All About Burger SW now sells grilled chicken sandwiches which is delightful for a non-hamburger eater. Also, they still run the $2 specials on burgers and chicken sandwiches about once a month.

    lol at people trying to compare Z-Burger and Five Guys…. it’s the exact same.

    The. Exact. Same.
