The Well Dressed Burrito is known for being one of the first southwestern carry outs in the DuPont Circle area, opening in 1986. Local customers know us as “the Burrito Place in the alley” because we are a little spot secretly located in the alley right down the street from Dupont Circle. Family run, loyal staff and most importantly, our overstuffed well-dressed burritos make us a must- have to meet your lunch needs. The Well Dressed Burrito offers more than just burritos made from fresh ingredients and changes its specials daily.

Here's what people say after redeeming their Nift gift.
food was delicious, service was friendly and fast, prices were more than fair, and servings we're huge
This place was fantastic! A bit hard to find, but once you do you will see how amazing it is! I got the bean and cheese chimichanga, which came with salad and rice and beans. It was delicious. Only thing I didn’t love was the salsa, but I will try a different type next time. Also, the price is such a bargain!
Great service and a very tasty burrito!!
The marinated beef burrito was amazing, I will leave a good review for sure! I wouldn't have known about this place if it weren't for nift since its tucked away in a back alley. Great value/cost, I have already recommended it to coworkers.
Cute place, decent price for amount of food. Go early though it gets crowded!
Definitely hard to find the casual grab-and-go burrito around town like this one. Would definitely go back if I was in the area
Best quantity and ingredients. Exceptional.
Great food and service
Really friendly staff, amazing food for a great price.
Very nice staff and good food!
Order on line or go there for lunch (they have limited hours), it's SO worth it! Delicious options and fresh ingredients. Welcoming staff. Loved it!
Quick service and the burrito was great!
I love this place
I always get the El Gordo burrito. It is HUGE, delicious, and well worth the price!
Cute little gem of a lunch spot in an alley. Nice find.
Will be a frequent place !
Amazing food and cool spot!
Good portion, location difficult to find!
Staff was great and the food was excellent...it is a best kept secret!!
Great lunch spot with high quality foods!
Great meat and beans but I prefer more veggies in my burrito. I had the Friday pork special. It could have been my fault for not reading ingredients. Fun location and friendly staff!
Fast service, great quality of food, inexpensive!
A hidden gem for lunch time burritos!
Great burrito bowl
Great quality food, fast and friendly service.
On time, delicious, cheap. Would go back!
Food was okay. I should have gotten the taco salad
Great ingredients and kind of fun to find a hidden restaurant.
Huge burritos at a great price - get a beef burrito for under seven bucks. A good deal and delicious food.
Hidden gem near DuPont! Big burritos.
Absolutely delicious little hole in the wall. Super affordable too!
Very busy, but friendly staff and good burrito!
I had a delicious salmon quesadilla, with a very generous portion of salmon in it!
quick service and the food was not bad. I had the vegetable fajitas
What a cool spot! Nifts are great for discovering hidden gems like this place, tucked away in an alley near Dupont. Great food and prices. Huge portions. My marinated chicken bowl was delicious ;)
Hole in the wall Mexican restaurant located off of the alley. Service was efficient, even with a relatively large lunch rush. Order was correct and a convenient, quick lunch option.
Best burrito I’ve had in DC!!
Very cool place.
Great and reliable food!
Love this place, very good for work lunches!
Delicious and reasonably priced!
super tasty, good service!
Pretty good! The cheese dip was disappointing but my burrito was good. A cool semi-hidden gem
Delicious burrito and affordable prices!
Great food, excellent service!
It was a nice family business and the portion size is large. Unfortunately when I ate in, I got bit by mosquitoes 5 times during the ten minutes I was in the shop.
For the price, the food was great. The portion was also huge. My only complaint is that they forgot to put rice in my burrito bowl, and I couldn't go back to have it added, as I was back to my office before noticing.
So delicious, unpretentious, and cost effective (even without a Nift coupon!). Can’t wait to go back.
The Well Dressed Burrito is great! I've enjoyed them for a long time now and was excited to see them on Nift.
Awesome location and great food! So much food for the price honestly so worth it for these DC prices... I can see why they are such a hit. I will definitely be going back!
I hadn’t been to WDB in years because when I go out to lunch I want to be able to eat at the establishment. The food there was always really good but it was too small with too few seats. Not any more. Now they have a (still rather small) dining area but it’s design to be now, not just a couple tables thrown in because they felt they had to. Also they have reserved tables in the outside courtyard at 1220 19th St for al fresco dining while the weather is still nice. I will for sure go back soon.
The food and service was great! I would recommend it to anyone that works in downtown.
The portion was very generous and the quality was great. Would definitely go back! The space itself wasn't very inviting, but it is a good option to pick up lunch to go
Well Dressed Burrito is a delicious hidden gem! I had never been before because it is located in an alleyway, but it's hidden nature makes it all that much better. The food is affordable, delicious, and much more authentic-tasting than Chipotle. The staff are incredibly friendly, too. I got the El Gordo burrito, which is humongous for about $8! Highly recommend!
It was great!
Service was friendly and quick. I got a burrito bowl which was just okay but the cinnamon sugar chips were delicious!
Delicious! Can't wait to go back!
I didn't even know this place existed! It is actually in the alley at 1220 19th Street. Who knew!! It was great! Thank you!!
Great lunchtime spot during the workweek. I might go during the weekend if they were open, but I understand how traffic might be lower.
An amazing lunch spot with great food and ambiance. Look, the only issue is it is only open Monday through Friday 11:45AM–2:15PM. After trying their great salmon GORDO burrito, I will tell you the prices are excellent for the portion size. Highly recommend.
I love you!!! Thanks.
Grateful for WDB’s participation in your program, food was delicious and checkout quick. Met Tom today, pleasant conversation and opportunity to thank him personally. Will always recommend and return. Thank You!!!
Food was great
Great deal! Great burrito! And nicer seating space than photos make it look.
Fantastic, affordable Mexican "down an alley"
The burrito was the delicious and the staff were friendly and patient with me.
Requires a nap afterwards but is so good.
I like that it's a nice hole in the wall restaurant. The food was fresh and delicious. There was a minor error in my order, however it was resolved with no conflict. Looking forward to restaurant again.
The burrito itself was absolutely amazing. I ordered a roasted vegetable burrito with added guacamole and requested it vegan. I’ve never had such fresh and varied vegetables in a burrito before. The mild sauce served on the side was disappointing though—it tasted to me like a tomato syrup. I’m a fan of hot sauces, and unfortunately this one did not impress. The cinnamon sugar chips though—-WOW. How chips can be crispy, crunchy, and melt in your mouth I don’t know—but they were GOOD!
Quick and efficient, great options, was DELICIOUS and such a good value. Will DEFINITELY go back!
Kind staff and delicious food!
Fast service, quality food and great portions.
Great food excellent service
