Z-Burger Coming to Waterfront Station

It looks like the cat is out of the bag and I can finally report that Z-Burger is one of the tenants that may move into Waterfront Station this summer. I’ve been holding the news in for months, but multiple sources confirm that the developers are in lease negotiations with Z-Burger. This would be Z-Burger’s third location in the District – the other two being in Tenleytown and Glover Park. Their menu consists of burgers, cheese steaks, fries, onion rings, shakes, and malts. Z-Burger will join Subway and Med Lahlou's planned bistro at 1101 4th Street.

Rejoice!

Finally, some good news. If it had to be a chain burger joint, this probably would have been my first choice.

Now for the confirmation on the sit down restaurant, and we'll have filled in all the holes in the Waterfront culinary mystery saga.

I didn't prefer a typical fast-food burger place so much as a Good Stuff Eatery or Ray's Hellburger type joint.

That being said, if we're getting fast food, at least this is a (mostly) unique offering in the city. Z-Burgers are greasy, but at least they're a new option for us! And shakes and malts ain't terrible to have, either, even if Potbelly at Federal Center SW also offers them.

All in all, pretty good news!

yay! i'm happy to see that the rumored burger joint is going to be a Z burger. i definitely prefer them to five guys and agree with technosophe that if it had to be a chain, at least it's a local chain.

WOW! So we'll be in the same league as Tenleytown and Glover Park, huh? The Little Quadrant That Could, indeed!

p.s. Thanks for spilling the beans!

Agree with all the previously posted comments that, if it had to be a burger chain, this is probably the best option (though would've preferred a local boutique kind of burger joint). Unfortunately, I'm disappointed, but not at all surprised, that Subway is the sandwich shop. Why, oh why, couldn't it be something more like Taylor Gourmet??

Is there any chance that there will be other restaurants coming to Waterfront Station? Or are all the retail slots filled now?

This is great news, if it is accurate. I was hoping for 5 Guys as an alternate to the dreaded McDonald's or Burger King, which would be the death of 4th Street SW, but this is even better.

Not gonna complain. This is good news. The definitive burger joint.

I'm really happy to hear this, I like Z-Burger much better tha 5 Guys. I would go to the one in Tenleytown when I used to live up there. For all of you who have never gone make sure to order your burger with Z-Sauce, and get some for dipping your fries/onion rings into.

We had a bad moment outside the new Safeway about 4pm yesterday. 6-8 young men, assumedly from nearby housing project from droopy drawers and trash-talking, walking abreast across sidewalk and forcing individuals/couples off the sidewalk. Also leaving a trail of candy wrappers and other litter behind them. "F-this, f-that." Security guards doing nothing of course, but what can they do, it isn't a crime to be a jerk.

Doesn't bode well for the new development, just the type of thing that chased us away in the first place.

I like! Although I'd still kill for someplace that serves brunch. Maybe Med L. will incorporate that.

Disappointing. Their burgers are awful. But I'm glad it isn't a big chain (i.e., Burger King, McDonald's). However, their logo and color combination looks just like a big chain fast food depot.
