Halal Z-Burger marks the Z-Burger brand's sixth area shop, boasting signature hand-crafted burgers, gourmet hot dogs and 75 hand-spun milkshake and malt flavors. But in addition to serving it all halal, this Z-Burger also serves breakfast with favorites like thick, syrup-coated French toast accompanied by bacon or sausage and fluffy three-egg omelettes built "My Way" where guests can select their choice of meat, cheese, and vegetables to go inside. Everything on the breakfast menu is under $10, perfect to pick up on the way to work or before a walk around the National Mall and monuments.

Z-Burger has been featured on The History Channel, ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC and FOX TV as well as on the pages of The Washington Post, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times.

Z-Burger is the perfect place for families, friends and professionals alike, and is even a local favorite of former President Bill Clinton.

In addition to takeout and outdoor dining, Halal Z-Burger also features a cool, industrial space with exposed brick and piping accented by sparkly chandeliers and a circular bar at its center from the space's days as Grand Trunk, another dining destination for Halal. As with other Z-Burger locations, the shop's lively interiors are designed to reflect the building and community it calls home. 

Halal Z-Burger is largely under the creative direction of Hana Ayele, a hospitality consultant and yoga teacher that helped bring to life Butter Chicken Company and whose family ties run deep in the Washington D.C. food scene: Her relatives owned legendary Ethiopian restaurant, Etete. 

"I'm excited to be able to bring my own ideas and enhancements to such a trusted, local brand," says Hana. "Halal food is so widely consumed across the world for many reasons. And I think that it's great we're at a place where we can share the traditions and benefits from our various cultures with one another. Halal food can be for everyone, not just those who practice certain religions."
