Foursquare Tips

  • Don't worry when the line seems preposterously long. It moves really fast. The customer service and attention to detail is admirable. This is how everyone should do business.
  • Two Buck Chuck. Charles Shaw wine for 2.99. The way to go.
  • Bring your own bags. Now 5 cents per bag under new DC law but if you bring your own, they give you 5 cents per bag!
  • The Cabernet Sauvignon is the best Two Buck Chuck by a good measure. It's definitely worth picking up for an extra table wine on hand.
  • Cute guys in hoodies shop here. The line moves fast, even if it wraps around the store. Lots of tasty cheese.
  • Not the best fresh meat, fish, veggies, or fruit. But, the absolute tastiest frozen food section! Very reasonable prices on wine and beer selections.
  • Bring a friend and have him or her wait in line while you shop.
  • Don't ever go on Sunday. Checkout line wrapping around entire store.
  • Be ready for the long lines...
  • Avoid on Sundays! It's always insanely packed.
  • The organic food is cheaper than whole foods. The lines look long but it goes quickly!
  • Line around lunch hour is pretty long. It moves fairly fast and there are lots of cashiers. I'm just buying lunch. Let's see how long it takes.
  • My favorite grocery store in town - great value, good selection, always samples!
  • Bring your own bags! ;-)
  • The pre-packaged meals have a sign with a great DC spin: Nixon proclaiming "I am not a cook!"
  • The line situation can get pretty unpredictable, but TJs is your personal adult playground for the 10 minutes before closing time on a Friday night. I'm not proud I know this.
  • Horrendously long lines on Sunday evenings so buyer beware. Yes they do work hard and keep all the registers open but it sucks when it takes 5 min to find what I need and 30 go check out :-/
  • I love Trader Joes. I go to GWU so I usually stop in after class to pick up a few groceries. The best part of it all it that they have a parking garage. Awesome!
  • The berries are pretty good right now especially the blackberries
  • The line is outrageous...
