Let's Talk About My Dining Experience at Rocklands Barbeque and Grilling Company
I recently had the pleasure of dining at Rocklands Barbeque and Grilling Company, conveniently located near the Chinese visa office in DC. The taste of the food was simply amazing, making it a perfect spot for a lunch break. The restaurant has a chill atmosphere, perfect for enjoying some great BBQ. The thin sliced bbq beef brisket was excellent, and while the pulled bbq chicken was a bit dry, a little bbq sauce made it good to go. The baby back ribs were a standout, tender and full of flavor. The sides, including mac & cheese, mashed potatoes and fried yucca, were all great additions to the meal. The service was excellent and very helpful, adding to the overall positive experience. However, it's worth noting that not all experiences have been perfect. During a special event, the wait time was longer than expected and there were some issues with the order. The brisket was chewy and the chicken still had bones in it. This was a disappointing experience, but it doesn't take away from the overall quality of the restaurant. Despite this, I still recommend Rocklands for its great BBQ and sides.
