OK. Some people might be turned off by the fact that Rocklands has 3 locations. As if having more than one joint makes you a chain or a sell out, but from what I’ve heard over the past six months from people in the DC and surrounding area, Rocklands is really doing a great job bringing authentic BBQ to the DC, Maryland, and Virginia area. However, you can see a review below from Beltway BBQ that runs contrary to the emails we’ve received, so I suppose you should check out all the reviews before heading over.
Here are their main offerings:
Pulled Smoked Chicken
Barbequed Brisket of Beef
Grilled Top Sirloin of Beef
Grilled Leg of Lamb
Hot Italian Sauage (with grilled onions)
They seem standard fair for what you’d expect at a quality joint. Not many people doing grilled leg of lamb, but if you are, you’re probably doing it right.
Here are maps to their three locations:
Check out their recipe of the Month on their site. This month it’s ‘Freehand Barbeque Sauce‘
I’d say the good reviews outweigh the bad ones, but as with anything and especially BBQ, it’s a preference thing. Let us know what you think though if you stop by one of their locations (and send some pics as we’ll post them).
