  • Ashamed of the decisions I've made here.
  • I like to think of this place as my little secret in the historic Georgetown neighborhood!
  • JQ is one of the greatest bartenders I've ever met.
  • Best bar in Georgetown, one of my favorite bars ever.
  • Q: What is your favorite smell or taste in Washington D.C.? Ashley Wagner, 2010 US Ladies Bronze Medalist: "Chicken #1 at The Tombs in Georgetown. One of my favorites."
  • A Georgetown tradition. Fantastic place.
  • Chicken Sandwich #1 and the Cheeseburgers are the best you will find in any bar/restaurant in the World! Hoya Saxa!
  • Try the Tombs Ale! It's pretty delicious and generic like the rest of Georgetown.
  • Watch out for douchy Hoyas including myself ... Oh and the Tombs Ale ain't too shabby
  • As fratastic & fun as I remember.
  • Make sure to get there early enough for a bar stool. This place is crazy busy almost every night of the week. However, the bartenders are cool and friendly and it's an overall awesome atmosphere!!!
  • We've spent many a late night here...
  • Order a tombs ale
  • When I need a nachos fix, this is my go to place in DC. They don't skimp on the fresh ingredients (thick slices of tomatoes and jalapenos) and refried beans. Fried green tomato BLT solid alternative
  • nice cocktails!
  • !
  • They now have a happy hour! Mon-Thurs 4-6 they have $3 mugs of local craft beers. And $9 pitchers of Coors Light all the time
  • Ask for the Dan Lechner special
  • Order a spiked caramel macchiato, best damn 'shake in the city. I promise you. Perfect to split between two making it just $5 each!
