ALEXANDRIA, Va. — President Barack Obama and his education secretary, Arne Duncan, had lunch Tuesday at an Alexandria, Virginia, neighborhood known for its good restaurants.

The White House says Obama went to FireFlies Restaurant because the owner wrote him earlier this year and asked him to come try the best burger around.

Obama said after lunch that he was “very happy” with the burger.

Burger runs are becoming somewhat of a regular thing for Obama. Last month, he and Vice President Joe Biden surprised diners at a Shake Shack burger restaurant in Dupont Circle.

But his unscheduled outings are hardly limited to just getting a burger. Obama left the White House on foot Monday and went to a nearby Starbucks with his chief of staff.
