About Myron Mixon's Pitmaster Barbeque

220 N Lee St
Alexandria, VA 22314

The team at Myron Mixon’s—named for a veteran champ of the competitive-barbecue circuit—excels with a spectrum of meats: tender brisket with its telling pink smoke ring, honey-tinted smoked chicken, and pulled pork. Get them in sandwich or one-meat-plate form to stay within budget, or bring friends and go all-in on a family-style feast. Also good: Buffalo pork rinds; deviled eggs; ribs.
