Everything on the menu is spicy. The burgers are good. My daughter’s salad was so spicy that she couldn’t enjoy it. Service was slow due to our server was also the bartender? Descent atmosphere.

Ate here on a rainy, mid-week night in a newly reopened DC. We picked it based on proximity, availability, and reviews on Trip Advisor With outdoors not being an option due to weather, we were hoping for good covid precautions for dining in. We are vaccinated, but still being cautious. We made a reservation and expected the restaurant to spread tables out as much as possible but instead they appeared to be seating mainly in one section of the restaurant while other sections remained empty. We would have asked to be moved but had been seated first and were eating already when the place started to fill more. The food was OK. The staff were friendly and attentive. and masked, but we wish they had tried harder to use their space for safety. We had burgers and the queso chili dip. The dip was good. The burgers were good with bacon, cheese ,and sauteed onions. I hope they move to make more effort to use their space wisely as things open back up, for the safety of their staff and patrons.

We had such a good time for a Sunday Brunch at Proper. We had some appetizers and drinks on their patio. The staff was super attentive and amazing. My mask broke and the manager even came out and tried to give me some tape and paperclips (hey, what he could find) to try and fix it - something he didnt need to worry about. Our server was amazing, friendly and talkative. It also wasnt over priced even though it was very close to the White HOuse and other local attracations. We will def revisit when we return.
