It’s late at night and you are out and about in DC, enjoying all the city has to offer. Suddenly you realize you’re hungry and jumbo slice pizza won’t do. You  are craving a nice, juicy burger. So where do you go?? Burger Tap & Shake is your place.

Dyanna and I went there recently and were very pleased with our selections. Burger Tap & Shake is located near George Washington University. It’s a burger joint that has signature burgers available or you can design your own. In addition to fries, onions and sweet potato fries (my favorite here), BTS also serves shakes and shaketails. What are shaketails you ask? Milkshakes with booze.

So upon our visit, I had the Talledega Nights milkshake. It’s comprised of Firefly Sweet Tea vodka (another fave of mine), housemade limoncello, vanilla ice cream and lemon juice.

It was delicious! The flavors complimented each other well and it was sooo tasty. I definitely recommend this milkshake if you like vanilla or lemon flavor.

Dyanna had the Big Daddy Burger. It comes with smoked benton bacon, buttermilk blue cheese, Lea & Perrins mushrooms, and AP sauce.

She of course shared some with me and it was great! The burger was nice and juicy. The bread was soft and the perfect compliment to the burger. And of course, there was bacon!! Do you see how thick the bacon is?!?! It was definitely an added plus.

Dyanna and I both highly recommend this burger. You won’t be disappointed. Overall, our experience at Burger Tap & Shake was a good one. You should definitely make it one of your late night eats spots. They have a lot of options to chose from, so you can make your perfect burger.

Burger Tap & Shake is open until 11pm Monday – Thursday, 1am Friday & Saturday and 9pm on Sunday. Check out their full menu and other offerings here.

Have you been to Burger Tap & Shake before? How did you like it? I’m interested to know.
