Dupont Circle is awash with craziness, Secret Service agents, traffic jams and eager office workers sporting cameras: President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden are having a lunch meeting at Shake Shack.

Eater has reached out to the restaurant's publicists for any details on what burgers, fries and/or hot dogs the world leaders consumed.

Update: Washingtonian is reporting Obama had a burger and the (new) fries, while Biden had a cheeseburger, fries and a black and white milkshake.

Also, here's an Instagram photo from Shake Shack founder Danny Meyer of Obama and Biden in line.

Shake Shack's CEO sent over a statement about the visit. ""We were humbled and thrilled to welcome President Obama and Vice President Biden for lunch today in DC at our Dupont Circle Shake Shack," said Randy Garutti, Shake Shack CEO. "We're thankful that The White House and US Secretary of Labor Thomas E. Perez continue to recognize Shake Shack for our hiring practices, pay, benefits and inspiring culture, and we're proud to be a part of the conversation."
