These Washington, D.C. Restaurants Are Barbecue Experts

Nothing says summertime eats like barbecue, whether that’s piled-high ribs, chicken slathered in homemade sauce or tender pulled pork. It’s all made even better with sides like watermelon, cornbread and pasta salad.

These classic American eats might be comfort foods, but they’re not easy to perfect. However, these Washington, D.C. restaurants have done just that! Check out these local eateries for a savory taste of summer.

Hill Country Barbecue Market, located at 410 7th St NW, Washington, D.C. which is six minutes from your 1331 Maryland apartment, is known for its Texas barbecue and beer served in a rustic-chic, cafeteria-style setup with regular live music.

Hill Country Barbecue Market serves the best of both the traditions and charm of the rolling, green countryside and the urban sophistication and energy of downtown Austin. Their meats are dry-rubbed and smoked low and slow over Post Oak wood imported from Texas and their sides and desserts include family recipes and new interpretations.

DCity Smokehouse, located at 203 Florida Ave NW, Washington, D.C. which is 13 minutes from your 1331 Maryland apartment, is a hip barbecue spot serving sandwiches and combo platters plus veggie sides, beer, wine and bourbon drinks.
