You may be familiar with Smoking Kow BBQ thanks to its two roving food trucks, but did you know that this Alexandria favorite just opened its first brick-and-mortar storefront last month? Visit Smoking Kow’s new Duke Street location to see what it's all about!
You can order both meats and sides by the pound if you like, but some of the restaurant's most popular meals are served as combination platters. Most famously, this place serves Mac 'n Meat plates, which include your choice of meat (try chopped brisket or smoked sausage, for example) served on top of a bed of creamy macaroni and cheese. Add a thick slice of toast and you've got a hearty, satisfying meal. You can also choose to have your meat served inside a taco shell with chipotle aioli and coleslaw, or on a sandwich roll with a couple of classic sides. Whatever you choose, be sure you bring your appetite, as this place has a reputation for generous servings.
