9 Best BBQ Joints in Washington, D.C. Slideshow

Slide 1 of 9
9. Mission BBQ (Glen Burnie, Md.)

Mission BBQ is located 45 minutes north of the downtown Washington, D.C. area, but it's well worth the trip. Bill Newt and his team not only turn out some amazing barbecue (from Kansas City to St. Louis) but their main focus is to honor first responders and the men and women of our armed forces. The patriotic restaurant stops each day at noon to salute the flag and play the national anthem. See Rich’s full review of Mission BBQ.
