Pork Barrel BBQ in Del Ray

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.
