  • The letters stand for Golden Brown Delicious, three words that apply to two hot dishes here: fried chicken and doughnuts.
  • This chicken is delicious, and the donuts are absolutely top shelf. Bacon and bourbon? Good God, it's good. Not sure where the complaints are coming from...undersexed crybabies, probably.
  • Fried chicken and doughnuts and a 20-tap beer list curated by one of the leading beer experts in DC.
  • Everything here was just unpleasant from the obnoxious greeting & service to the soggy food & bland donuts.
  • What isn't good at this place? But you MUST try The Luther: Fried Brioche Doughnut Glazed in Maple-Chicken Jus w/ Buttered Pecans, Slab Bacon & Fried Boneless Chicken Thigh + Side of Fries. Amazing!
  • The fried chicken is easily the best I've had in this city. And the biscuits will have you reconsidering religion.
  • So highly recommend the sweet potato biscuit with fried chicken and honey for breakfast.
  • The Luther is all you need to know.
  • Looking for a salad? Go for the sweet and savory Curry Salad with Roasted Chicken: romaine hearts, red grapes, golden raisins, almonds, celery, and creamy curry dressing.
  • Delicious, but heart-attack inducing.
  • The staff is super nice, from the host, to the guy at the take-out counter to the bartender who rocks the NY Yankees cap. That and the biscuits keep me coming back.
  • The made-to-order vanilla glaze one is yum!
  • Great Bacon doughnut and house brewed Chai Tea!
  • Order everything
  • Grapefruit Campari donut, yum. Chicken is delicious, pimento mac& cheese outstanding.
  • The chicken is really GBD! But the creme fraiche biscuit is divine. So delicious!
  • Donuts, fried chicken and bubbly... Count me in!
  • Just listen to everyone and have the Luther. Great selection of craft beers.
  • Pretty hip place, the chicken and waffles was great and finished the meal off with a chocolate glazed donut.
  • The Fried Brie here is incredible!
