Eat By Numbers – Burger, Tap & Shake

When you dine out, you might think about the ingredients that go into your food, but you probably don’t think about all the numbers that make your meal happen. Restaurants are filled with interesting figures that might not be apparent when you bite into an enticing entrée or take a sip of a signature cocktail, but they’re all around you.

This week, we take a trip down to Foggy Bottom’s patty palace – better known as Burger, Tap & Shake – to discover just how many pounds of beef they use every week making hamburgers and how many straws diners go through sucking down the eatery’s signature boozy milkshakes.
