I’ll Have Cheese With That: President Obama and Russian President Medvedev Lunch at Popular Burger Joint in D.C. Area

One president ordered his burger with bread and butter pickles, the other one got jalapenos. These are the details trickling out of the lunch between President Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev at the popular burger joint Ray's Hell Burger in the D.C. area.

Officially, here were their orders:


Food: Cheeseburger with cheddar cheese, onions, lettuce, tomato and 'bread and butter' pickles.

Drink: Iced tea in a bottle.


Food: Cheeseburger with cheddar with onions, jalapenos and mushrooms.

Drink: Coca-cola in a bottle.

They shared fries.

Later at a joint press conference in the East Room at the White House, President Medvedev called his burger, "tasty." He also said the spot was an "interesting place" but it's "probably not quite healthy."  Medvedev also said he could "feel the spirit of America."

The White House says President Obama treated.

President Obama has been known to frequent popular burger restaurants in the area since he got into office . Previously he’s been to Ray's Hell Burger with Vice President Biden, and went to Five Guys with NBC’s Brian Williams.

The lunch came before the two presidents held a press conference and after they held meetings at the White House.
