Washington DC Signage

I made a mini-roadtrip this morning to DC for some good old fashioned neon.

    • Howdy Dinerman – I like your style…

      For fine barbecue not too far from DC, head south to Charles County, Maryland:

      Dales Smokehouse on Rt. 210 (Indian Head Highway) almost down to the base is my current favorite – go for the ribs and I don’t think you can go wrong. Whole pork ribs, sauce on the side is hardly necessary, slices of white bread serve as your “napkin”!

      T&J’s Barbecue on Route 225 not too far from La Plata (and Dale’s!) is an old favorite. Strong for ribs and excellent smoked chicken. Dining is “al fresco”!

      Right on Route 301 near La Plata is an old standby – Johnny Boy’s Ribs – pretty darned good, but I think the other two joints are superior.

      The three places I’ve listed can all be hit in one, stomach bending trip! In general, I think ribs are the strong suit for Southern Maryland places, but by all means, sample the whole menu!

      Now do you want to talk Charles County crab shacks?

      Enjoy…
