New York Times calls 2Fifty Texas BBQ one of DC’s best

The New York Times named Riverdale Park’s 2Fifty Texas BBQ one of the best restaurants in the greater DC area.

In a review of the “25 Best Restaurants in Washington, DC Right Now,” the newspaper cited the capital’s “vibrant” food scene, starting alphabetically with 2Fifty:

As in any good barbecue restaurant, the smell of wood smoke announces 2Fifty Barbecue before you enter the doors of the casual dining room. The owners, Debby Portillo and Fernando Gonz├ílez, moved from El Salvador to Maryland in 2018 with a custom-built smoker, where they sold barbecue slabs at farmers markets before opening this location, and one in Washington, DC. Fans pre-order plates of spicy, South American-inspired Texas barbecue that often sell out before the day is over. Don’t miss the tender brisket, smoky ribs, or chicken quarters, all with a side of tasty macaroni and cheese. It’s a perfect spread to take to nearby Riverdale Park on a nice day.

Surprisingly, the piece doesn’t mention that 2Fifty expanded to a location on K Street earlier this year.

The section also highlighted the diversity of D.C. restaurants, such as Afghan restaurant Lapis in Adams Morgan, Filipino restaurant Kuya Ja’s Lechon Belly in Rockville and Uyghur restaurant Bostan in Arlington.

2Fifty also got shout-outs from Washingtonian magazine, Southern life, The Washington Post And Washington City Paperincluding points of sale.
