Its a small BBQ spot with friendly staff and where I often grab lunch. They make the BEST pulled pork sandwiches. This is the best southern BBQ in the area!

We just tried Backyard Barbecue tonight and we really enjoyed it, even the baked beans that are hard to get right and they did. My husband had the Italian sausage and peppers and it would have been nice if they gave a bit more, he didn't eat it on a hot dog roll but plain so he did need a bit more.

This is a small take out, with eleven stools with an eating counter. Ordered the Smoked Brisket & cole slaw. The beef was more tasteful than the slaw, overall the total meal was tasty & filling. Price was reasonable. The BBQ is located in a small plaza with the parking a bit tight. I would stop again.

Found it by accident after Capital Q closed in Chinatown. The best beef brisket hands down in the DC metropolitan area. Ribs are baby backs and sausage are to die for.....get the sauce on the side. Homemade potato salad and cole slaw taste like home. Ribs only on weekends and they're closed on Mondays. Worth the trip when you have a hankering for real deal bbq.

Great place for BBQ carryout. You can eat there but it's not really a restaurant like Rocklands.

Most of the time the ribs, brisket and pulled pork are great but it never is consistently great. I have had the brisket when it's outstanding and order on another day and it's not. Same with ribs and pulled pork.
