A word from Old Glory
Of all of our "native" food, barbecue is uniquely, authentically and gloriously All-American. Old Glory, located on historic M Street in Georgetown, captures the food, flavor and feel of the great barbecue restaurants of the United States, and offers representations of each styles of barbecue served in different parts of the country. "It looks like a rib joint, sounds like a rib joint and smells like one...most important, of course, the kitchen smokes fine barbecue," says the Washington Post. The huge barbecue pit, the open kitchen, and the 1901 Silver Dollar Four Winds hand-crafted bar, create lively, exciting atmosphere that is downright down-home.Continued

- Old Glory ROCKSOpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 11/18/2014The food, service, and restaurant is the best! I was very impressed all around and will definitely be back!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good BBQ in DCNonesuchDined on 11/18/2014JFK once described Washington DC as "a city of Southern efficiency and Northern charm." This is reflected in the paucity of good barbecue in the city--presumably due to Northern influence. But barbecue fans can find some relief at Old Glory, in Georgetown. The pulled pork, in particular, is very good. Sauce it up yourself, with a choice of sauces including tomato-based (Memphis) and vinegar-based (Carolina) style.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great BBQCollegestudentDined on 11/13/2014Great service, good food, well priced beer. Overall good night!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Not great.TexasGrownDined on 11/8/2014I'm from Texas, and while I didn't expect Texas-grade BBQ, I did expect something at least somewhat tasty. The BBQ chicken was decent, but the brisket and turkey were incredibly dry and flavorless. The turkey was so flavorless, in fact, that my mother and I both thought it was chicken. That's not good. In addition, the waitress was flustered the entire time and would run past us while we tried to flag her down, and the Southwest Texas BBQ sauce tasted nothing like any BBQ I've ever tasted in Texas. No bueno. I'm not even picky when it comes to BBQ, but this was so incredibly far from authentic that I had to write something.
- JimJimmyDined on 11/8/2014Great food and beer selection but I was surprised by how rude the hostess staff was.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Nice place for lunch in Georgetown!rudybDined on 11/8/2014Really liked the place and would recommend eating here if you're in the neighborhood. We had the "Whole Lot of Glory" platter and it was plenty for two people. Food was cooked just right and the service was excellent.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- great barbecue, realistic portionsOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 10/17/2014We had a 7pm reservation and were still seated promptly when our plans changed and we got to Old Glory about 30 minutes early - a great start. The service was fantastic - waiter was personable and "explained" the menu and the various bbq sauces, even brought a sample of beer when I asked about local brews. We love the BBQ pork sandwiches, baked beans, and mac & cheese! The food was great - traditional slow cooked bbq, and realistically sized portions (not so much that you feel uncomfortably full after eating dinner). I marked "moderate" noise level because we were at a table that was quiet enough to have a good conversation, it may have been "livelier" downstairs or later in the evening. Highly recommended; we will be back!Special Features:
- Cve66Dined on 9/19/2014Bar b q--was fine-what you would expect. Good barbq food. No bottle wine list. Great for groups, college students and their families, etc..exactly what you would expect. Teenagers and groups and students in comfortable, active environment w good bar b q food.. Ribs were greatSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Hoped for moreWITravelerDined on 8/28/2014Last night out on a week-long trip to DC and wanted to catch a BBQ place. Reviews spoke highly of Old Glory. Unfortunately it just did not meet our expectations. The amount of food was fine, but it was not the great BBQ dinner we had hoped for. Food was average, pice average, service OK.Special Features:
- LesliAnn1Dined on 8/22/2014Best wings ever! Great barbecue joint, large portions and reasonably priced.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Prefer to keep it secretPigsFlyDined on 8/16/2014I don't really want to go into this place much and would actually prefer to not review it. It's my go-to place in DC for BBQ. I wouldn't mind it if you never go there. I'm greedy when it comes to pig.
- Nice place to eatMH1212Dined on 8/9/2014Old Glory is a nice restaurant with good food. Personnel is friendly. Overall the prices are a bit high for the food you get, but M street in Georgetown is probably an expensive location for everything.Special Features:
- Good bbqJamesVIPDined on 8/9/2014Old Glory is a great place for no frills bbq. The ribs and pulled pork are excellent. I'm less impressed by the turkey and brisket. If you want a healthy alternative, try the chop house salad.

- Good food in GeorgetownFoodieDined on 7/26/2014Had the bbq ribs and 1/4 chicken. Requested white meat and was really surprised how moiat and delicious the chicken was. The ribs were good too, but the chicken was great.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great sports bar in GeorgetownhoyawolfDined on 7/19/2014Old Glory manages to take high class barbeque and make it a casual experience in a fun sports var type atmosphere. Unlike many of the more pretentious spots on M Street Old Glory knows exactly what it is - great barbeque at fair to mid prices for a casual dining experience.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Ribs were amazing, service OKcjgeisslerDined on 7/19/2014Our server tried hard, but she wasn't the best about keeping drinks full and, completely oppositely, the entire staff was incredibly overeager about bringing our food out right away and clearing our table when we weren't even done.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Ribs! Noisy Loud CrowdFatmanDined on 7/5/2014Waitress lost our ticket so we waited an hour for food. Next to no wine selection. If you like noise, ribs and beer, this is your place.
- all americanEllieBDined on 6/27/2014Great all American food. Brought friends visiting from out of town and they LOVED it!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Rare find in a busy townCary28Dined on 6/19/2014Very nice BBQ place in the middle of Georgetown. Reasonable prices for a lot of food, especially the Happy Hr menu. Chili Fries are tasty, as are the sliders. Good ribs and pulled pork are above average, and the sauce are very goodSpecial Features:
- Loud LocalsGrumsDined on 6/6/2014Stopped in as Open Table gave this a 4 star but I'd give 3 at best. Was greeted, yes, but by someone who it turned out to be a kitchen worker. He did not know specials or prices and sat us at a table with a dirty plate. We don't know why he needed to help out when there were other male staff members were standing around eyeing and chatting about women going by the open door. Not pleasant nor professional. We did stay and ordered the sliders which were quite good but the place is noisy with loud regulars who had been there awhile even though it was only 6PM. Not the type of place you'd want to spend much time unless you drank more. Too bad.
- Tourist/Georgetown Frat HangoutCeehVIPDined on 5/31/2014Food is decent and hugely portioned. Bar is lively, with Georgetown students chanting "Georgetown, Georgetown!" Not much ambiance and certainly not somewhere you'd want to go on a date night...that being said, if you're craving some "Southern" food, this is an option.Special Features:
- Best BBQ in DCBBQdinnerDined on 5/29/2014We loved this place! Amazing service, amazing food! Our server Victor was great! He was attentive and very kind. He was always there when we needed him. He took the time to explain the resturant and all the different Foods and sauces, like he was explaining a fine wine list. The food was amazing! Tender pork and brisket donr just right. You can smell fhe hickory from blocks away! Big portions. Fun atmosphere and nice cozy bar. Highly redomend.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- We'll be back!TheLuckyOne13Dined on 5/12/2014My husband and I went back to Old Glory because it was where we went on our first date 7 years ago. We were given some great ideas for bourbon choices as well as food by our server. Our appetizer was delicious as was my sandwich and my husband's combo platter!! We tried all of their sauces and they were great as well! The only downfall was that it was 79 degrees in the restaurant--we saw the thermostat... I was sweating while eating so that was the only downfall. It was hot out and I'm sure the smokers and other kitchen equipment added to it but I think something might need tweaked for the upcoming hot days!!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good FoodmissnadjaDined on 5/2/2014We stopped by Old Glory because we heard they have good BBQ. The food was good. I wouldn't go so far as to say great. The serving sizes left a little to be desired. The service was OK. It did not seem super busy that day. We were greeted immediately. Got our drinks quickly. Getting the server to come back to take our order and refill drinks could have been faster. Also it took a while for him to come back with the receipt after taking my credit card.Special Features:
- Everything is GREAT hererunnergirlDined on 4/20/2014We love to go here when we visit DC. Everything coming out of the kitchen looks great. Too bad I can't eat it all. Just means we have to return to DC to try something else.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- The food went downhillOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 4/19/2014The food here really went downhill. The french fries were cold, the ribs were not fall off the bone or tasty. I used to come here more frequently but I will not be returning. The service wasn't bad, but the food was.
- Good american style food.NadalaDined on 4/14/2014Good american style food. The food came quickly. Great service.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Good foodLivesinDCDined on 3/20/2014First time her and all was good, ribs tender, not dripping in sauces, sides were right sizeSpecial Features:
- Beer and Whiskey - Not FooddpbeachDined on 2/22/2014Enjoy the beer and whiskey, but forget about the food. The brisket was fine, but everything else that was eaten at our table was mediocre or just plain bad, including the desserts. At least it's not terribly expensive and the service was good.
- Love itberoDined on 2/21/2014Been there few times. Food was always great. So far I had brisket and pooled pork. Both are amazing. Great place for brunch.Special Features:
- Food was very good. Service....webilliard101Dined on 1/30/2014Food was very good. Service....we weren't sure who our server was (4 different ones to our table) and because we had so many servers, we think that one thought the other was taking care of things. Little attention given to refills for a while. Person who dropped off food said "Your server will be here shortly to explain the various sauces." That never happened. I mean, we were able to figure it out, but if we had waited, the food would have been cold. My wife ordered the pulled pork on a bun w/ one side for (I think) $12. Was a bit over-priced for the portion. The review that we read said they go there often and could never finish a meal because there was so much food. We didn't find that to be the case.Special Features:
- We Keep Coming BackBWLtravelsDined on 1/11/2014Old Glory is one of our favorites to take out of town visitors - easy relaxed atmosphere, solid barbecue, and attentive wait staff make it a dependable and enjoyable experience. Check out the brisket and crunchy cole slaw.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- BBQ gemkatlucasDined on 1/3/2014My family and I was excited to eat at Old Glory. We had not been to the Georgetown area in quite some time. Our server was named Olivia, she was pleasant, engaging, and knowledgeable of the menu items. We were there to celebrate our daughter's birthday, so the night was a special occasion. Olivia talked to our daughter and recommended some menu items to us..the food was amazing beyond belief, served in large portions so we all could sample each others entree. A True BBQ stop for anyone in the Georgetown area!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Check For YourselfOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 10/30/2013It was an average expirence i expected more due to the fact they insisted i made a reservation. The service was good hostess wise, the waiters hardly knew their menus. I would recommend it, if you are just going for a bite to eat nothing fancy.Special Features:
- Giving 'Glory'HibachiGuy06Dined on 10/26/2013Since moving to the the area, I have been a fan if Old Glory. The slight Ganges in menu have changed my patronage from monthly to a fee times a year. Overall, the food is prepared well and the service is friendly and helpful.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- 4 stars for the ribsmjmdcVIPDined on 10/13/2013Good tender fall off the bones ribs cooked the way they should be. Other food off the smoker is good as well. Otherwise it's a bar.
