Eater Declares Bad Saint as Most Popular Filipino Restaurant in US

Aug 30--Eater declares Northwest DC's Bad Saint as the most popular Filipino restaurant in the US.  Watch  here

We don't know how Eater came up with this declaration, but if the basis comes from simply having the most number of quality media coverage --and the great reviews the Filipino restaurant has been getting, Bad Saint is truly a game changer.   It goes even further to honor Maranao food, as it's probably the only  Filipino restaurant serving Chicken Piaparan.

Bad Saint accepts walk-ins only; no reservations. It has a dining room and can only seat groups of 4 or fewer.  

As a result, folks usually line up before it opens at 5:30pm.  The line can sometimes start as early as 3:15pm. Once the dining room is full, it starts a wait list and text when seats are ready. With very limited seating each evening, the waitlist can quickly reach maximum capacity, sometimes as early as 6:30pm.

The menu changes frequently.
