Stopped here for lunch while checking out sights on the National Mall. Very unpretentious setting where you order at the counter and wait for your order. The burgers were fresh, hot and very juicy. Be careful not to drip on your clothes! We enjoyed it.

Great cheese and bacon burger combo with seasoned fries and a soda. Eclectic atmosphere, some classic antique diner artifacts. Experience spoiled by the uncouth cashier who could not get my order correct. Then she turns around and cusses the grill guy who is trying to...More

We stumbled upon Ollie's Trolley by chance on Labour Day. Once you get passed the "old fashion look" and the abandoned atmosphere, the food is actually good. We went for the Ollie's Combo of burger and fries ... the burger was delicious, although the bacon...More

I used to eat at Ollie's frequently. This trip I ordered the Ollie's combo. The seasoned fries were great. Like I remember them. The burger was awful. They charged $11 plus for the combo. I assume it is because they use high quality beef. There...More

A little surprised that this was a cash only restaurant. That's why I did not give 5 stars. But our food was delicious. You order at counter and pick up your food when called. The inside is decorated with antique toys and decorations. Reminded us...More

No service. You order at the counter and pick a seat. Have some old things but inside does not live up to the hype. Food was burger and sandwich food. Decour was not great. Old. Food was tasty but took awhile. Would not repeat.

A good place for a D.C. Burger with fries seasoned perfect for delight. Convenient location near tourist attractions and federal buildings. Large menu with burgers, chicken sandwiches, deli sandwiches and other specials. A bit costly but worth it. They only take cash.

I had the house made veggie burger and other members of our party had the beef. They said theirs were really good, but I can only vouch for the veggie burger. It was probably one of the best I've ever had! Their fries were really...More

I was in DC for just a day and had planned on parking outside the city and taking a bus into town. But got sucked into freeway traffic and ended up downtown whether I wanted to or not. Street parking for out-of-towners is difficult, but...More
