About Eat Great Cheap 2019
This article is a part of Washingtonian’s Eat Great Cheap feature, our annual list of where to eat (and not break the bank) right now. Our food editors put together the best new restaurants around DC where you can find Detroit-style pizza, Japanese egg-salad sandwiches, chicken-nugget-filled tacos, and more—for $25 or less per person.
Curlicued hot dogs with gourmet toppings make Swizzler one of our favorite food trucks, and a new sister vehicle serving burgers is even more reason to reroute your lunch plans. That menu offers just one meat and one vegetarian option. The grass-fed-beef burger contains two smash patties oozing with cheddar, tangy-creamy sauce, pickles, and shallots. The lentil patty is just as satisfying, especially with a side of fries covered in Parmesan and truffle oil.
