Robert writes: “It looks like the Smoke and Barrel is desperately trying to cling to life.

They’ve got great BBQ and they’re really nice there, so if there was ever a time to share the love it’d be now.”

“We are open
seven days a week.

5pm – 10pm

Their website says:

“Smoke & Barrel is a neighborhood gathering spot and BBQ joint, or at least it was before Covid took over all our lives. While we continue to serve delicious BBQ for carry-out and delivery, our dine-in business, like so many other neighborhood restaurants, has all but disappeared…understandably.

As the principal owner of Smoke & Barrel, I am reaching out to you all with a plea for your continued support. We do not have the ability to have any kind of reasonable patio space so we rely entirely on our carry-out and delivery but we are on the verge of suffering the same fate as many of our restaurant peers who have recently closed permanently.

It has become too financially challenging to stay open with the diminished sales we have seen. Therefore, I am asking you all to please consider ordering from Smoke & Barrel once a week or every two weeks so that we can make it through these very challenging times.

At this time our financial position will only carry us through Christmas at best but with your help, we can hopefully get to 2021, to a vaccine, and to a whole new tomorrow.

Please help us beat Covid and continue serving great BBQ to DC.

-John Andrade, principal”

You can now order wings from them too.
