Description: Of all of our "native" food, barbecue is uniquely, authentically and gloriously All-American. Old Glory, located on historic M Street in Georgetown, captures the food, flavor and feel of the great barbecue restaurants of the United States, and offers representations of each styles of barbecue served in different parts of the country. "It looks like a rib joint, sounds like a rib joint and smells like one...most important, of course, the kitchen smokes fine barbecue," says the Washington Post. The huge barbecue pit, the open kitchen, and the 1901 Silver Dollar Four Winds hand-crafted bar, create lively, exciting atmosphere that is downright down-home.

Reviewed November 16, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Old Glory has great deals, good Southern kitchen and a nice crowd. Smokers can be out on the porch/patio/sundeck. I like the atmosphere here and you'll find all kinds of people dropping by although younger students seem to frequent Old Glory in the evenings.

“You dont have to go far for decent BBQ”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

Old Glory's was an excellent decision for lunch. Right when you walk in it smells like BBQ and good smokey wood. The bar is beautiful, it looks like an oversized fireplace mantel. I had the pulled pork sandwhich with coleslaw and pickles. The table also ordered burnt ends and a cobb salad. There are 4 different BBQ sauces on the table for you to have: SW Texas, Memphis, Kansas City, and Savannah. All different and all unique to the regions. I suggest trying all of them! They bring you mini corn muffins instead of bread and they have real arnold palmer....with unsweet iced tea. Our server was wonderful and the food was just filling enough. The only downside I would say is that they are a little heavy handed on the salt.

“Outstanding BBQ”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Really great BBQ and this is coming from a southerner. You have to get the Mac N Cheese. The wings as an appetizer were also one of the best I have had in a while.

“Dont miss baby back ribs”
Reviewed October 16, 2013 via mobile

Even tho we were staying in arlington va we made the long trip to georgetown. The barbecue is out of this world. It can be noisy & crowded on weekends especially dinnertime & later go early & avoid the crowd. There is a good cupcake shop one block away snd hagen daaz across the street.

“BBQ in DC - And it was Good!”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Okay - So I was in DC for a convention and the dinner excursion was BBQ. Yes BBQ, not crab. And after doing work in Austin, TX where across the street is the world famous Franklin's and two blocks south is Stubb's BBQ, it seemed that this was going to be a bust. Especially when having to cater to over 100 individuals.

Well to my surprise the BBQ was good in fact in some instances excellent. The best was the sausage, but the wings and ribs came in a close second. The chicken, both kinds were also good, while the brisket was on the low end but still a good. The fried jalapenoes and pickles were excellent. So if you are looking for BBQ in DC this is the place. Also for the women it is along the main shopping street in Georgetown so a win-win.
