Address: 2016 Georgia Ave. NW

In 2005 Cam'ron took a few bullets to the arm during a failed carjacking while in D.C. for Howard University’s homecoming. The injured Diplomats head honcho whipped his blue Lambo to Howard University Hospital to tend to his wounds, and en route he passed Jerry’s, a neighborhood favorite directly across the street from the hospital. This hotspot sees steady traffic all day but bustles during the late night tip (open til 3 a.m. daily, 4 on the weekends). Get your incenses and loosies on the low from the urban merchants while you wait, or drop half a buck and hop on the crusty sticks (Area 51 or Ms. Pacman, your choice) until they call your number. The wings are moist and tender, and the mumbo sauce sweet with a hint of barbeque. Check out their other locations in Capitol Heights and Upper Marlboro. Oh, and DMV rhymesmith Phil Ade just shot his latest video here, too.
