Tasty 8’s

Veni, Vidi, Vici. Or for those of you whose boyfriend isn’t a Classics scholar, I came. I saw. I conquered.

Yesterday, my co-workers and I took a trip down our flight of stairs and out the door to our new neighbor, Tasty 8’s! I had been following them as they were under construction, creating menus and opening–so was excited to finally give them a try. It helps when you go with a group because that means you get to try all the dipping sauces for the Belgian fries. Personally, I ordered the dijon aioli.

Out of the eight hot dog choices, I chose the Windy City Weenie. I highly recommend. I like how Tasty 8’s cuts the CAB dog in half, to leave optimal room for the toppings to reach every part of the bun.

Choosing between milkshakes was hard, but I ended up ordering the Salty Dog–that is, salted caramel mocha milkshake. Delish!

Never have I ever had a booze milkshake. Well, not until a month ago when I put my mouth to work at sucking a surprisingly delicious, strawberry gin concoction from a straw. 

I just had to capture the essence of the cocktail/milkshake menu. You’ve gotta taste it to believe it.


This hip take on an American classic both refreshed and excited. The Satellite Room offers standard menu options: burgers, fries, soups, salads, etc. 

It is also conveniently located next to the 9:30 club in Washington, DC. So stop in, have a boozy milky creation and get ready to dance the night away.
