In last week's Washington, D.C. City Guide on Serious Eats, Washington Post food writer Jane Black named Ray's Hell Burger as having the best burger in D.C.:
For $6.95, you get a 10-ounce burger made of hand-trimmed prime beef (including juicy scraps from nearby Ray’s the Steaks), corn on the cob, and a slice of watermelon. There are only a few seats and no fries here. But who needs 'em?
She also recommends Palena "for a more civilized experience."
