THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Capital Q Restaurant Review

: This Penn Quarter barbecue joint offers Texas-style grub: smoky Texas sausages and pulled chicken, offbeat chopped beef and black bean tacos, and a giant smoked baked potato. But whatever you do, don’t skip the ribs---they are glorious, meaty and super-smoky, with enough bottled heat to sear your mouth. Sides include skins-on chunky mashed potatoes, collard greens, pork and beans, home fries and coleslaw. Don’t miss the creamy banana pudding for dessert---take some home for a midnight snack.
