FOOD COMA: Trying to Survive Five Guys

I TEND NOT TO EAT burgers and fries as a major source of sustinence. But yet, they do slip into my diet. In fact, Friday's Diplomat Burger for lunch at the Post Pub -- just down the block from The Washington Post's downtown headquarters on L Street NW -- was perhaps one of the more stomach-upsetting experiences I've had in a while.

I just got Five Guys for dinner at their new Wilson Boulevard location in Court House. (Yes, I'm at the office on a Saturday night.) A Little Bacon Cheeseburger sounded like a good idea at the time. Now I'm in stuck in a food coma, trying to digest all this. I'll be stuck in my chair for quite some time. I can taste the saturated fat.

Does any place in Arlington deliver a spinach salad?

Try Listrani's. They have plenty of grease, but I've ordered some tasty mixed green salads from there. Good luck.

Ah, but in moderation Five Guys is the best thing going. Best comfort food I know. Best burger around.
Always too many fries.

Wait till you try Fogo de Chao (on Peensylvania Ave).

From now on, I'd stay away from the food at Post Pub. I used to work across the street from the Post offices, and a number of my coworkers saw things at Post Pub that you shouldn't see in a place where you eat. I'll leave it at that.

Mmmmm, Five Guys. One advantage to Washington over New York.

You guys are wimps. The Dip Burger at the Post Pub is a delicious medley of burger, bacon, Velveeta and grease, unparalleled in the city. Be sure to get the Velveeta on the onion rings too.
