Worth checking out. BBQ joint, but upper end. Great beer selection, cool looking room, and good service make this a worthwhile adventure. My guest was even able to enjoy vegan stuff (kind of weird for a BBQ place). I really liked it. Dinner for two,...More

Welcoming venue. Great beer. Relaxed and good food. What’s there to complain about- nothing. Sit at the bar or table. Good for single drinkers. Extensive beer selection. Enough for anyone.

I visited this place with my colleagues. Nice ambience. Great ribs and sweet potato fries. Beer was good too. It's a small restaurant but packs a punch.

You just don't get pulled pork and smoked brisket like this back home! Their smoked baked beans need to be canned and sold across the world. The neighbourhood of Adams Morgan is very friendly and full of life.

Smoke and Barrel is our regular go to place when my Texan in-laws are in D.C. Their favorite is ribs there. For me pig wings are to die for. I also know they have some solid vegan choices and quite a long list of locally...More
