President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden ordered burgers and French fries for lunch on Friday at the Shake Shack on Dupont Circle in Washington, D.C., according to the White House Press Office pool press report.

Biden also ordered a black-and-white milk shake at the restaurant, read the report.

Four men who are working on a nearby reconstruction project joined the president and vice president for lunch, and a photo op for a project the Obama administration touts as part of its ongoing effort to increase investment in infrastructure.

The pool press report said that $6.9 million of the $9.1 million project comes from federal aid.

“The president and vice president were seated with their guests at a tall table -- POTUS without jacket, white shirt, blue tie, VPOTUS no jacket, white shirt, purple striped tie,” the pool press report states.

“Both were sipping from small Shake Shack cups, but [it was] unclear what they were drinking," stated the official pool press report.

The pool report named the four construction workers as Abdullahi Mohamed, Antonio Byrd, Aidin Sarabi, and Meredith Upchurch.
