After years of driving past without stopping, I finally stopped at Smoking Kow in Alexandria off Duke Street for dinner after post-work meet up with friends at Port City Brewing, which is 5 minutes from the West End of Alexandria (3950 Wheeler Ave.). After the first taste, the thought that came to mind is how much good BBQ I could have enjoyed before now. Went back twice more. Really tasty BBQ. No frills. Just smoked beef and pork.
I tried both take out and eat in. Brisket platter, brisket sammich, half-rack of ribs, and pulled chicken so far. Same for the sides of beans, cole slaw, jalepeno Mac-n-Cheese, and Texas Caviar.
All good. Really good. And equally close to the West End of Alexandria and Old Town Alexandria.
Smoking Kow is located at 3250 Duke Street. Open Tues, Weds, Thurs, & Sun from 11-8. Fri & Sat from 11-8:30. Order online for delivery or take out at smokingkowbbq.com.
