Ate lunch here because several people told us about it. What we liked: 1. Free parking. 2. Table by the window. What we didn't like: 1. The food was OK; generally forgettable. 2. The menu is designed to stand out among other restaurants, but we prefer our meals not to be so funky. Would we return? No. Would we return?... More

Uncomfortably warm to start with. They were out of the beer I ordered and it was only 5:00 Friday. Philly cheese sandwich had about an ounce of meat and little cheese. Never got a second glass of water. 0 for 3 on meals here

We were in Washington on Sunday around lunch and found this restaurant open! We were greeted at the door with a smile and given a table right next to the sidewalk but inside!

My sweetheart is not from Washington, so I took her to Grub Brothers for their famous Southern Belle hamburger. It really is good with the pimento cheese and fried green tomato.

We started with the peel and eat shrimp....Yum! When finished we decided on the Tijuana Philly wrap and the Aloha BBQ Sliders and they were delicious accompanied by sweet potato fries and regular fries. All was a pleasant surprise. Fun atmosphere with great music.

We are certainly are not fast food. We are a Southern restaurant with a twist. All our items on our menu are in the right cost margin.

They had a great selection of bottled beer but just a minimal amount of draft beers (we prefer draft). Our server, Racheal G, was excellent. We split a chicken philly sub and it was very good. Their homemade chips were crisp and there wasn't a greasy or soggy one in the bunch. I would recommend this place for lunch.
