Its become quite difficult to find affordable food in the neighborhood and Benito's has a tasty menu of Honduran and Mexican food of just that. It's also directly across the street. Dishes run from $2.50-15. If you haven't had a papusa (or 3), I'd recommend theirs over most. The most expensive thing on the menu is the whole grilled fish but it's also my favorite.

I love sandwiches and this is one of my favorites in the whole city. It's also a quick 5 min walk away. It's in one of the many alley's in the neighborhood previously used as stables (among other things). No recommendations necessary, I like them all. The eating space is quite small so I usually order ahead and take it down the street to Lost & Found, a bar with a great beer selection (you can bring any food you want in there). Leave out the back to check out Blagden Alley, a trendy little strip of spots that opened in the past couple years.

The pizza is a little pricey ($15-20) but the pizza is quite good (Michelin star good apparently). It's an 8 minute walk.

A well appointed outdoor bar that's usually a scene. Go for the frozen cocktail, stay for the people watching.

A sizable outdoor German beer bar that's very popular with humans and dogs. If you're looking for something cheaper, try Ivy & Coney just down the street.

A fun wine bar with a back patio. Its 5 blocks up the street, just before you hit the dozens of bars on U St. Keep heading up the street for all sorts of options.

If you're searching for a small non-pretentious bar with good music and cheap drinks, look no further. Cash only. A mile up Rhode Island Ave. Head across the street to Boundary Stone if the dance floor gets too packed.

They have a big patio that's great for a drink on a nice day especially if you don't want to walk anywhere. The Bird, a block south on 11th, also has a big patio.

Spanish tapas and a creative set of drinks to choose from. I have hard time not trying one of their house made Slushitos. Nothing is cheap and everything is tasty. Keep heading up the street for a wealth of additional options. I'm a fan of Bar Pilar or go have a rooftop margarita at El Centro or Masa 14.

This place stays busy but its also your best cost to quality ratio and has all sorts of irresistible snack foods. Head across the street to Jeni's if you need some top notch ice cream.
