Craving some tacos, we headed over to Del Ray to Taqueria Poblano. Unfortunately the line was out the door and at least 30 minutes for a table. Not feeling that patient, we wandered down the street and popped into Pork Barrel BBQ. It's a little disorienting, with the food somewhat fast casual with a full bar to the left. If you want to sit at a table, you head to the back of the room and order your bbq, sides and drinks, and carry them over on a tray to an open table. If you're fancying a beer or tasty adult beverage, head over to the bar, where they'll place your food orders as well. It was Friday night, and I definitely fancied an adult beverage.
It's a pretty decent menu. We decided to try the Big Feed ($34.95) to share. With brisket, pulled pork, ribs, chicken and sausage, plus choice of two sides, it was a good way to try a lot of their bbq and get a feel for the place. Hands down, the pulled pork and sausage were my favorite. The brisket was a little on the dry side, while the chicken was surprisingly juicy. I don't believe they smoke the meat on premise, but the flavor was satisfying.
