Jumbo Slice—a late-night rite of passage for any young rambunctious professional in our Nation’s Capitol out having a good time.
The slices sometimes exceed 20 inches from crust to tip, are covered with grease, and are a delicious end to many evenings in neighborhoods such as Adams Morgan and U Street.
Expensive? No. Healthy? Afraid not. Fun? Definitely. We don’t go to Jumbo Slice for fine dining. We stumble in because it hits the spot. We enjoy it because a little cheating on the diet never hurts…right?
So, please enjoy this list of of the Top Twenty Things You Never Hear at Jumbo Slice:
