Burger Buddies: Obama and Biden dine at D.C. Shake Shack


Hey isn’t that…POTUS and VPOTUS lunching at Shake Shack in Dupont Circle? Obama and Biden were spotted dining at the burger joint on Friday for a quick lunch.

The president is said to have ordered a burger and fries, while Biden went for the same plus a black-and-white milkshake. (FLOTUS would not have approved!)

The duo are known to love good burger, but they also seem to enjoy getting a little work done during lunch. Obama told reporters they chose Shake Shake not just for the “great burgers,” but because the company pays its employees $10 per hour.

After his plug about raising the minimum wage, Obama asked that his lunch bunch be able to “eat our burgers in peace.”
