At Joe Theismann's, made-from-scratch American cuisine and warm, welcoming service are the major running themes. They have been for more than 40 years. The community gathering place first opened its doors back in 1975 with the goal of creating a space where everyone would not only feel welcome but also well-fed—and the current local owners and staff continue to keep that tradition alive.
Stop in for brunch, happy hour, or dinner to experience some of that signature service and comforting cuisine. Start with the crispy house-made onion rings with freshly crafted blackened ranch on the side, or dig into a pile of the DC-style chili cheese fries. They’re not only loaded with chili crafted from scratch, but also beer-infused cheese, smoked sausage, pickled onions, and a drizzle of that signature blackened ranch dressing. For the main course, sink your teeth into a classic burger like Joe’s All-American, stacked with a pair of prime beef smashed patties, cheese, and Russian dressing, or try a slightly more upscale entree. The 45-day-aged filet mignon is a popular choice, as is Joe’s favorite spirale and chicken with house-made pasta and a creamy parmesan sauce.
