Ollie’s Trolley

Ollie’s Trolley

Originally uploaded by tbridge.

Downtown DC is full of expensive restaurants: Butterfield 9, Bobby Van’s, Smith and Wollensky, Morton’s, Galileo and too many others to name. It’s hard to find a good simple place for lunch when you’re just in the mood for a burger and some fries.

Enter Ollie’s Trolley.

There’s one about a block from my office downtown, they make a mean (and cheap) burger, and their fries are head and shoulders above the garbage that fast food chains put out. Covered in a mix of paprika, carraway seeds, salt, light garlic, lemon pepper and a myriad of other spices I can’t easily identify, they make for the perfect rainy day lunch food. Some days I’m just glad to spend the $6.50 for lunch instead dropping a ten-spot for a takeaway sandwich or a twenty for a sitdown lunch.

    I LOVE OLLIE’S TROLLEY! Used to work downtown years ago and would trek up to Ollie’s at L and 15th to get my fix. It was sooo bad but yet so good. I miss it a lot since I am rarely in DC during the weekdays…thanks for the memories.
