Where to Eat BBQ This Summer
'Tis the season for smoked meats galore.
3471 Washington Blvd., Arlington
The elder statesman of the local barbecue set (this outpost of the regional chain opened in 2007) recently added an expanded tap system for craft beers, and is known for its extensive bourbon selection. Rocklands’ Bourbon Club offers more than 50 different types of bourbon – including its own house spirit – and members can work their way through the list for prizes. In addition to offering both beef and pork ribs, the Arlington location also has a super special on Mondays: Order a beer at the bar and get a chopped pork sandwich for free. You can buy Rocklands sauces by the bottle if you want to take some home; Spicy Mustard and Sweet and Smoky are the two newest flavors in the lineup.
