With a name like “Good Stuff Eatery”, you had better bring the quality, and Good Stuff certainly did.

My wife and I and a bunch of friends ate at the Good Stuff Eatery in Crystal City. A friend of a friend was having a birthday party there and we were invited to crash the party… glad we did! GSE at its heart is a burger and shake joint, but don’t be fooled, they have quite the selection of both, amazing fries, and a myriad of other things to suit your fancy.

I personally had the bacon cheese burger and later a cookies and cream milkshake with chocolate ice cream. The burger was perfectly cooked (better than I expected from a fast food place) and was ready fairly quickly. If you get fries, don’t pass up their “dipping bar”. They’ve got the typical ketchup, mustard, and BBQ sauces, but then they also have stuff like Old Bay, Siracha, Chipotle (my personal favorite), and several others. Very cool stuff.

Speaking of cool stuff, you’ll want to get a shake while you’re there. They’ve got lots of flavors to choose from, but don’t be afraid to ask for something custom. I got the vibe that they’d mix up about anything if you asked nicely.

All in all I’d definitely recommend Good Stuff Eatery. If you’re in the DC area, check them out.
