Hill Country Barbecue Market

When Marc Glasserman decided to offer an inviting ambiance and a menu full of mouthwatering meats, the Hill Country Barbecue Market was born. The eatery quickly earned a two-star review from The New York Times and topped the Wall Street Journal’s list of “Best New Barbecue Restaurants.” Hill Country is also known for its live musical entertainment. It hosts over 500 performances every year between the Washington D.C. and New York City locations. In the kitchen, the meats are carved to order. Options include brisket, spare ribs, and pulled pork sandwiches. 

Myron Mixon’s Pitmaster BBQ

Known as the winningest man in barbecue, Myron Mixon is a four-time World Barbecue Champion and best-selling cookbook author. He brings his award-winning recipes to Alexandria, and the restaurant always draws a crowd. Myron Mixon’s boasts a four-star rating on Yelp and features exposed brick, dark wood accents, and one of Myron’s Grand Champion trophies. Offerings include Black Angus beef brisket, rubbed pulled chicken, and smoked sausage links.

Kenny’s Barbecue Smokehouse

Called one of D.C.’s best-kept barbecue secrets, Kenny’s is where locals gather for home cooked, family-style meals. The meats are smoked to perfection, while the classic sides are made from the finest, freshest ingredients. Visitors can enjoy their time inside or on the quaint patio with picnic tables and street views. The service is fast and attentive, and the menu offers something for everyone. Choices include chicken, rib tips, and chopped pork sandwiches.
