Hands down, the best BBQ we’ve ever had – the food here straight up blew us away, like we just want to throw our money at them because they’re THAT amazing. We’d happily eat there all every day for the rest of our lives. Located at 203 Florida Ave NW, their space opens on Mondays from 5PM -12am and Tuesday-Sundays from 11am to 12am. Note: there isn’t a huge sitting area so get there on either the early or late side to avoid long waits. Take-out is always a solid option as well!
First up, the Meaty Palmer ($10). Holy freaking crap, this sandwich straight up slayed! It was literally one of the most amazing sammiches we’d ever tasted. It contained turkey, pork belly, avocado, tomato, chipotle aioli, and all things good in life. The toast was super buttery, and the meat just melted in our mouths. Also pictured: their jalapeno cheddar grits, which were super yummy and flavorful ($6 for a large).
Now onto our favorite platter of the night: the Ribs and Wings Combo ($15). It came with 2 sides so we went with house pickles and fried brussels sprouts, which BTW were ridiculously tasty! The sprouts and wings were both seasoned with their scrumptious rub, and we seriously couldn’t get enough of either. Now, there are amazing wings, and there are AH-MAAAA-ZING wings. These were the latter – they were cooked to perfection, and the crunch of the pickle complemented their texture beautifully! The ribs tasted extra smoky, and we mean that in the best way possible – definitely a must try.
The last dish we got was a sammy called The Big Snoop (with an order of spiced fries on the side): half smoke sausage, pulled pork, coleslaw and BBQ sauce. This was our least fave out of the bunch, but that’s not saying much because it was still quite tasty! Honestly, nothing could top their wings + Meaty Palmer so it’s almost unfair to compare. OH, and make sure you guys get a side of cilantro ranch when you go because it’s stupid good – they need to start selling that in bulk because they’d make SO much money. Anywho, that’s it for today folks. If you find yourself in the nation’s capital craving some kickass BBQ, you now know where to go.
