About District BBQ
Restaurants often self-hype—here you’ll find “planet’s best beans”—but the many winning barbecue-battle banners hanging at this place are proof of champion flavors (and the brisket-laced beans are indeed out of this world). Owners Ahmad and Aladdin Ashkar specialize in dry-rubbed, wood-smoked meats from their native Kansas City; don’t miss the burnt ends, hunks of brisket caramelized in spicy-sweet sauce. Still, you won’t go wrong with more elaborate creations—a smoked, brisket-stuffed potato smothered in cheese—or the tasty sides. Also good: Pulled chicken; brisket sandwich with american cheese and onion rings; slaw; wings.
