The Well Dressed Burrito MEXICAN CASUAL EATERY

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.

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!

Sarah, December 13, 2019

Great service and a very tasty burrito!!

Vera, December 5, 2019

Very good

Katie, November 26, 2019

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!

quick service and the food was not bad. I had the vegetable fajitas

Shopping, September 23, 2019

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 ;)

D., September 20, 2019

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.

Amanda, September 19, 2019

great value!

Quinn, September 3, 2019

Great Burritos

Sujan, September 2, 2019

Delicious burrito and affordable prices!

Marcus, August 31, 2019

Great food, excellent service!

Emmie, August 30, 2019

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.

Julia, August 22, 2019

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.

Emily, August 19, 2019

So delicious, unpretentious, and cost effective (even without a Nift coupon!). Can’t wait to go back.

Morgan, August 16, 2019

The Well Dressed Burrito is great! I've enjoyed them for a long time now and was excited to see them on Nift.

Tiernan, August 14, 2019

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!

Chelsea, August 9, 2019

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.

Dave, August 8, 2019

The food and service was great! I would recommend it to anyone that works in downtown.

Amanda, August 7, 2019

very yummy!!

Hillary, July 29, 2019

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

Irene, July 28, 2019

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!

Jillian, July 26, 2019

It was great!

Hassan, July 24, 2019

Service was friendly and quick. I got a burrito bowl which was just okay but the cinnamon sugar chips were delicious!

Kira, July 16, 2019

Delicious! Can't wait to go back!

Nicole, July 10, 2019

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!!

Nancy, June 24, 2019

Great lunchtime spot during the workweek. I might go during the weekend if they were open, but I understand how traffic might be lower.

Daniel, June 21, 2019

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.

Mike, June 20, 2019

I love you!!! Thanks.

Charles, June 17, 2019

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!!!

Kelly, June 3, 2019

Food was great

Jordan, June 3, 2019

Great deal! Great burrito! And nicer seating space than photos make it look.

Farrell, May 24, 2019

Fantastic, affordable Mexican "down an alley"

Michael, May 23, 2019

The burrito was the delicious and the staff were friendly and patient with me.

Imani, May 20, 2019

Requires a nap afterwards but is so good.

Corinne, May 16, 2019

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.

Shambulia, May 11, 2019

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!

Mary, May 8, 2019

Quick and efficient, great options, was DELICIOUS and such a good value. Will DEFINITELY go back!

Kelly, May 8, 2019
