President Biden stunned a D.C. employee when he called in an order to Ghostburger on Tuesday, January 17.
Ghostburger employee, Brittany, was visibly shocked when Biden called in a pickup order for himself and Vice President Kamala Harris.
“Hi Brittany, this is Joe Biden,” the president said in an Instagram video of the interaction. “I’d like to place an order for lunch if I could, okay?”
Biden made the order in order to “support one of the “10.5 Million small businesses that have applied to start during [their] administration,” according to a press release.
The president and vice president ordered a classic Ghostburger, a Ghostburger with bacon, and two crinkle cut fries, and Secret Service agents picked up the order to go.
Ghostburger opened its brick-and-mortar location in Shaw in September 2022, after initially being a popup during the pandemic.
This is the second time Biden publicly patronized a D.C. restaurant during his presidential term—the first being when he ate at Taqueria Las Gemelas in 2021 on Cinco de Mayo.
