Lauriol Plaza is popular in DC only because it's in DC. It wouldn't survive in another city, especially at what they price. There is a place in Baltimore (Canton Square) called Nacho Mamas which is 1/2 the price and twice as good. I suggest you try it out. Mobey D*c is flat out not good. I've been to all of their locations, because other people have recommended it to me, and I just couldn't believe it was so bad. Mobey male private part is actually worse than Lebanese Taverna, which I couldn't believe could happen.
eileen is right. You guys scare easily. My car was robbed in Woodley Park, which is about as Northwest as you can get. There have been shootings in Dupont recently. Catholic is fine, so is the area around it. I go to church there on Sundays. Sometimes I drive, sometimes I take the Metro. Either way, I'm never scared of anything. I personally think Adams Morgan is much more dangerous on a Friday/Saturday night at 3-4am than the area around Catholic, which is basically docile. With regards to the NW signs, I guess that's a general rule, but many areas on NE and SE are improving, and will continue to do so. Have some faith. DC is coming back. All we need is a Mayor with some balls. This guy with his bow tie is pathetic.
Five Guys = AverageIn and Out = God's gift to hamburger lovers
Elvis,I'm gonna stick up for Five Guys here. The one in G-Town is new. Everytime I've gone to a new one, it hasn't been as good as the original ones located in NOVA. If you have time, I suggest you go to the Five Guys on Fayette and King streets in Alexandria. If you're still disappointed, you can hunt me down.
