If you've got the money, Good Guys.

Wow. Believe it or not but we were at the auto show yesterday and the wife asked about potential dinner places,  that was my response. Fortunately she laughed.

Any place worth eating at near the Washington Convention Center?

Acadiana (901 New York Avenue, a block away from the front of the convention center) is quite good, if perhaps a bit expensive. It's owned by the people who own DC Coast.

Hooters isn't too far   ....   seventh between "H" and "I".    There's a micro brewery over near 11th ST (had to look it up  ...  Capitol City Brewing).

For beer, the obvious place is RFD, which is across the street from Hooters. Can't beat their draught beer list.

Their website makes it appear it's related to the Brickskeller.    That used to be a go to place for beer in the '70s.

I moved up to Good Guys.   :)     Brickskeller was right around the corner from where I lived when I first came to DC.

I believe it stands for Regional Food and Drink. It's on 7th between H and I Streets. Huge beer list. Food isn't bad either, but the only time I go there is if I am meeting my wife at a Caps game, or if my brother is using her ticket, because she refuses to go in there because she feels it is too much of a dump.

Not a big fan of RFD's food (better than Brickskellar, but that's not saying much), however the beer list is legit. They usually have a couple of cask beers that are worth a try.

It's a shame that Capitol-Q BBQ closed - their brisket was awesome.  Matchbox has good pizza & sliders and their beer list isn't bad...not encyclopedic like RFD, but good enough.

I thought it was Rural Free Delivery.  The food there was really bad but, as Ali said, the beer list was pretty bad ass if you're into drinking that piss.  Whatever you do stay away from Hill kangaroory BBQ.

Hah, don't you know that a restaurant in DC is a full star higher just by virtue of jurisdiction?

That being said I will concede that it's not easy to find decent BBQ in the DMV these days.  I get down towards Indian Head from time to time and the BBQ down that way is legit without the needledick influence at all.  Georges in Indian Head, Slab o ribs in Bryans Road, and always have a soft spot for the drive in BBQ sandwiches at B&J Carry Out in Accokeek.  You have to request the slaw to be NOT on the sandwich, as the default is on, as it should be.      :judge:

Rural Free Delivery is a post office service.

The food I've had at RFD was OK, but I go for simple stuff there. Fish and chips, crab-stuffed pretzel, that sort of thing. I wouldn't try anything more elaborate than basic pub food there. Last time I went there I ate first at Quizno's around the corner and then just went to RFD for beer before a Caps game.

Finding good bbq here is just about finding a place with a regional style you like, DC has people from everywhere and no two regions agree on what BBQ is. Personally I think Rocklands is fine, Pork Barrell has gotten really good and Dizzy Pig in Mannassas makes the best rubs around (if you're too lazy to do it yourself)

Urban BBQ has good brisket. Smoke & Barrel has good smoked sausage. But I'm not from the south, so what do I know.

South is more pig or chicken, brisket is a Texas thing
