The nachos, burnt ends and cucumber salad were really good, but the mac-n-cheese was a little too dry for my liking. I thought the staff was very nice and friendly. It was my first time here and we will definitely come back.

Sad to say that this restaurant was below average for DC barbecue area food and service. An unenthusiastic bartender told us that the place did not specialize in cocktails... okay fair enough. When we asked for recommendations on barbecue choices, again, a complete lack of enthusiasm about the product. We ordered the three meats plate with burnt ends, pulled pork,... More

Great pulled pork, burnt ends and white chicken chili, must try their spicy monster macaroni and cheese and cole slaw made with bell peppers. I'm getting hungry just thinking about this!

Came here a few days ago with a group. The pulled pork sandwich is very good. The accompanying sides are okay. For people who do not eat pork, the restaurant would do better to offer fries and hamburgers also. The drink menu is limited. The restaurant looks fresh and clean. There is no service at the table. You go to... More

They have burnt ends on the menu! You can get a 2 meat or 3 meat platter with 2 sides for a good price. They have a good choice of sauces (spicy and sweet are my recommendations.) if you want great BBQ not too out of the way, this place is worth your visit. In the Del Rey area of... More

Fast and quick. Walk up to order and choose from various sandwiches. I did not examine menu completely as someone was ordering for me. M ig bulletin board is over order counter. Many soft drinks from the past available like Nehi, orange Crush, Creme Sodas and more. Bar area was very busy. Big TV screens. Our basic BBQ sanwiches were... More

Went to Pork Barrel BBQ for the first time last week on a Monday evening and it was slow with only a couple of tables seated at peak dinner time. Walked into the restaurant with a total of four of us. Waited at the front door with no assistance for a couple of minutes and a waitress/bartender walked right past... More

Good selection of pork, brisket. The pulled pork was just right. The brisket just a little dry, but still delicious.

We met up with friends who hadn't yet been to Pork Barrel, so we ordered a variety of smoked meats . . . Beef brisket, pork, and turkey. . . along with several sides and some cornbread. The meats were so flavorful, tender, and juicy! I hardly added any sauce. I think I know where I'm going to get my... More

Pork Barrel has great bbq in Del Rey—just outside of downtown Alexandria. It's located on Mount Vernon Avenue, in a busy little strip-mall type shopping area that has a variety of places to eat. The restaurant is a big, open space that has a full bar and then a dining area with large tables. It has an arcade machine, and... More
