Michelle and Girls Order the Obama Burger

First Family at Good Stuff Eatery

Not one to ignore the family need for burgers, Michelle Obama brought Malia and Sasha to lunch at Good Stuff Eatery on Thursday.

Patrons dining at the outdoor tables realized right away what was happening, said Felice Robinson, administrative coordinator for Good Stuff Eatery (303 Pennsylvania Ave. S.E).

"How are you gonna miss the Secret Service?" she said.

The patrons outside saw the Obama girls getting out of the van and were immediately thrilled, whipping out their cell-phone cameras to get photos. "People were really happy to get a shot, and especially to see the girls," said Robinson. "Michelle has been here before, but this was the girls' first visit."

The First Family (sans Dad) ordered a Farmhouse Cheeseburger, Colleti's Smokehouse Burger and -- of course -- the new President Obama burger, topped with horseradish mayo, red onion marmalade, crumbled blue cheese and bacon.

Several members of Michelle Obama's staff joined them for lunch (and milkshakes!) at a 10-person table.

The Capitol Hill resto is headed up by "Top Chef" finalist Spike Mendelsohn. "The White House chef is a really good friend of Chef Spike," Robinson said.

Mendelsohn had been to the White House earlier this year, for a kid-friendly cooking demo during the Easter Egg Roll.
