Foil pan food, tasted reheated. Didn't appear to have been rubbed, smoked, etc. just so-so food in smaller portions. Try jackstackbbq.com for a sample of real BBQ (I'd order from there while I lived in the DC area to remember what real BBQ tasted like).

I used to work around the corner from Capital Q for many years and I never had a good meal there. I tried it maybe 4 times in 4 years and just could not get anything to be tasty. The ribs were greasy, pork undercooked,...More

A business associate took me to this place based on recommendations he'd heard (he'd never been either). I had the brisket sandwich and was surprised at both the amount of meat and the flavor. I think they could keep up with some of the Kansas...More

Stopped in here for a bite to eat before catching a movie. Found the place pretty easily due to the fact there is a BBQ going on the rooftop. I had the brisket burrito with the spicy sauce and roasted corn salsa. Really satisfying and...More

I've visited Capital Q several times in my DC travels and never been disappointed with the brisket. Servings are generous, sauce is good and the meat is very good. Not much seating and the sides are average, but since when does one do BBQ for...More

I am a south texas castaway. Been stuck up here in yankee land too long. But I have to disagree with some reviewers that do not think they serve real texas BBQ. I worked in DC far too long, but i loved taking time and...More

Having brisket on the menu and Texas decor does not make you an authentic Texas BBQ. In fact having a TX BBQ restaurant in downtown DC is an oxymoron. Real TX BBQ is slow roasted meat on open pit barbecues using hardwood or hardwood coals....More

From the reviews, we were pretty excited about this place - but it is a tiny little room, with a few high tables, and counter service BBQ. The food was ok, but it is clearly set up for drinks before a sports event, not a...More

Tried the smoked turkey, which was dry without any distinct flavor, and not helped by the uninspired (mild) bbq sauce. The sides were mixed with decent mashed potatos, but I'm guessing the corn came from an economy sized can from Costco. Service and atmosphere were...More
