This Week in Burger Days: Hell Burger, Brion’s Makes a Switch, Shack in the Park & Rogue States Returns

After a slow couple weeks, the burger juices started flowing again in D.C. This week we got some Hell Burger action, a burger coaching change in Fairfax, NYC beef is about to invade the ballpark and a DuPont favorite is returning to the mix. When the pimp's in the crib ma, click it like its hot....  

To Hell & Back

The BD crew hit up Ray's Hell Burger, not once, but twice last week to get our fill of beefy delight. Highlights from our trip included some cheap, but good as hell, mac & cheese, cool, refreshing Cheerwine and enough burger juice to fill a kiddie pool. [ Burgers from Hell ]  

Coach L Gets the Ax at Brion's

The man who led George Mason University to the Final Four, not to mention the Patriot's first-ever NCAA win, no longer has a burger named for him in Fairfax. Ex-Mason basketball coach Jim Larranaga, who announced he was taking his talents to South Beach in April, got his namesake burger dropped from the menu at Brion's Grille this week. In its stead, a brand-new creation for incoming hoops coach Paul Hewitt. [ Out with the Larranaga, In With the Hewitt at Brion's Grille ]  

Five Guys Who?

A month to the day Shake Shack made its D.C. debut, their second District location in Nationals Park is scheduled to open. The NYC-transfer will open up alongside Union Square Hospitality Group's three other joints at Tuesday's game vs the Cards. The out-of-towner's grand opening comes less than three months after it was reported that the local burger kings, Five Guys, were unceremoniously booted from the park. [ Five Guys Who?

Return of the Beef

Connecticut Avenue is about to get another hot beef injection when the too-smelly-for-their-own-good Rogue States re-opens as Black & Orange later this month. Eight months after being shutdown because their beefy aroma was too much for fellow tenants, owner Raynold Mendizabal says the DuPont burger fave is ready to get back in the mix.
