    Greasy spoon in the truest sense of the word. Food is what you'd expect: burgers and dog; hot, fresh, inexpensive, & cooked to order. Decor is interesting w/ the various antiques around. Cash only.

    Only complaint is that they take cash only. In downtown DC cards should be accepted. Great food especially the well seasoned fries and thick milkshakes. Would come back to this landmark.

    Been here twice. Got the Ollie burger and this time decided to be more adventurous got chilli burger. Both are good and the fries are great! The man at the counter each time was delightfully surly.

    Great food, even the fries are tasty. Make sure to bring cash. CASH ONLY!!! Worth checking out, I've only been there once but my food was great, as was everyone else I was with (there were 6 of us).

    Get cash prior to getting in line. The waffles in the morning are nice. Get the ollie burger deal for lunch. They have the best fries around.

    The Reuben was great, but the crabcake sandwich my friend ordered looked better! Split the fries, there are a lot in the bag!

    Awesome burgers. They only take cash and the place is falling apart but we’ll worth it.

    Cash only place, but atm inside. Fresh made burgers are worth the trip. Fries are nice and crispy. Good 40s atmosphere.

    Great burger and fries with an old school burger joint vibe (because it is...).

    Try the Ollieburger - Ollieburger with cheese at Ollie's Trolley in #DC (via @Foodspotting)

    Better than Bens chili bowl and better atmosphere too. Great place close to the national mall

    Late night food is nice, but the smoke from the patio comes right into the rest of the place. We were able to use a credit card to pay, so maybe they're not cash-only all the time?

    The fries are thin shoe string with a Cajun seasoning; among the best in DC.

    Crab cakes are the best. Also delicious strawberry shakes. I always take a good book and chill out here when the weather isn't the best

    Avoid. One of the few Ollie's Trolleys left, but this chain should be let go to history. Food is okay, but the location is not well kept and has terribly high cash-only prices.

    Get the Ollie burger.. It's good!! I could of did without the seasoning on the fries and the ghetto bathroom though.

    We wanted to like it here, but sadly, we did not. Held out high hopes for the burger, but what we received --a decent patty but terrible bun-- was a let down. We dug the heavily seasoned fries though.

    Please DO NOT TOUCH THE ANTIQUES... God only knows why... And it obvious they don't dust them either. Overall good food though

    The burger and fries are nice enough, not as good as i'd hoped. Just remember not to touch any of the antiques

    Cash Only!!! Service not the best and look dated and could use a minor cleaning, but the good was good and not to high prices for the tourist budget.

    Best fries in town... think mcdonalds fries with spices... ask for ollie sauce to dip them in.
  • Lorraine-Lori J.
    Milkshakes were very good but expensive. And cash only threw me for a loop.

    Messed up my order. And the cashier had the audacity to bring up border issues with me because I had an Arizona ID. He told me boldly to "tell the Feds to secure the f@&$ing border."

    Food was good but service was very slow and place isn't too clean. It's also cash only and expensive for what they serve.

    The chicken sandwich is a decent size. Don't let the dirty interior deter you. The food is ok.
