Hipsters and young families alike flock to this industrial-looking bar just off the U Street corridor that serves up locally sourced BBQ favorites and beers and whiskeys that range from lowbrow to artisanal. The spot doesn't take reservations, so get there early on weekends.
Don’t Miss: The house-smoked brisket and the "swachos," a swine-topped play on nachos.
Side Show: The swachos are the crowd favorite, but other sides include pickles, chili, slaw and BBQ beans made with DC Brau beer and house-smoked bacon.
