Hill Country serves some of our favorite barbecue in DC, and the location in Penn Quarter makes it an easy spot for a fun, casual dinner. Be sure to get the brisket platter, and then head downstairs to the bar for somewhat cheesy but enjoyable live music (usually with no cover, but check ahead online). And if you’re seeing a show at Capital One Arena, a meal here before or after is your solution to the very subpar and overpriced stadium food.

Texas Jack’s Barbecue

Texas Jack’s in Arlington is a bit fancier and more buttoned up than your typical BBQ joint, but the food is very good.

One of the best options for both Indian and a fine dining experience in the city.

The phenomenal tapas and fun times here might be the best example of what Jose Andres has done for DC eating.
