Obama made a surprise lunchtime stop at Five Guys Burgers and Fries, a fast-food restaurant in Washington, D.C.
The president ordered a cheeseburger with lettuce, tomato, jalapeno peppers, and mustard, and placed several other to go orders for his staff. He also ordered a cheeseburger for Brian Williams, the anchor and managing editor of NBC Nightly News. The network is filming a day-in-the-life program, “Inside the Obama White House: Brian Williams Reports,” a two-night special airing June 2 and 3, at 9 p.m. ET.
The president snacked on peanuts, and chatted with surprised customers while he waited for his order.
There are “more problems than we thought,” Obama told a man who asked him about his first months in office.
After paying at least $80 in cash and a group picture with the Five Guys staff, Obama walked out, carrying two very large brown paper bags.
