UNDERWHELMED. Took a group there this past Saturday evening for a dear friends 60th birthday as he is a huge fan of Mixon. The food was average. The highlight were the sides of Mac n' Cheese, Baked Beans and Pimento Cheese app. The Mains included chicken, brisket and ribs. All were average at best. Service was pretty friendly but scattered. Tried to order additional cocktails and it was difficult as was securing additional cutlery. Need to up their game to become a strong contender.

Lived in NoVa over 50 years. Ribs were by far the best I've had in at least the last 20 years!

Went in Sunday afternoon, the bar was out of most bourbons, my last drink was watered down, when I asked if in fact it was my server said YES, they had run out of Jack so they tried to stretch it, of course I didn’t pay for that drink. I was told that the manager was off and they couldn’t replenish the alcohol until they returned some time during the week. Brisket good, pulled pork lukewarm

The beef brisket melts in your mouth and is very lean! The smoked chicken wings are very good as well. I did not like the cold slaw it has a strong onion taste.

We missed our Valentines Day reservation at another restaurant and decided to try Myron’s BBQ. You may not associate BBQ with romantic, but it had quite a nice atmosphere.

We had the dry-rub wings, brisket, ribs, beans, Mac-n-cheese, corn bread and cole slaw. The ribs and iced tea were on point, service was excellent, and country music playing at just the right volume. Kinda glad we missed our other reservation.

Our group of 10 had a super time. A bit noisy, but we were probably the noisy ones! Food was terrific. Loved the barbeque, but the mac and cheese stole the show!!

The brisket and pork were juicy but lacked any flavor whatsoever. The dry rub on the wings was good but the wings themselves were just “ok”. The French fries were bland tasting, too.

Burnt ends were tasty. Ask for their spicy Bbq sauce it’s not on the table. The dry wings were also excellent. Best BBQ in the DMV

The food was excellent! No sauce needed. Ordered the three meat - brisket, ribs, pulled pork - platter with greens and max&cheese - excellent. Jessica was the server and she was excellent as well. She was familiar with the menu and provided great recommendations. Can’t wait to go back!

We’ve heard amazing things about this spot. Definitely not disappointed! From the time we got there until we left, we felt like family. The owner was more than gracious, checking in from time to time as well did the server. Everything we ate was excellent, the deviled eggs as a starter and the 2meat/3meat platter with fixins galore. The praline dessert was a must to finish up such a great meal. Hope to come back when Myron is actually there as well as to enjoy more great food.

Loved everything except the bbq sauce, it was to watery. We went there for restaurant week, it was so much food we had to take home left overs. Please be aware if you are going for restaurant week make your reservations for 5 pm and beyond. The dry rub wings are flavorful, even without the dipping sauce. I tried the pork rinds and was surprised at how much I liked the topping. We asked for them with the toppings on the side, the rest of my table enjoyed them plain. I would definitely go back, the food portions are worth the price. All of the meat was well seasoned and tender.

Good brisket but pricey than I prefer. I will likely go again but not as often as I would if the prices were a little less.

The manager would not honor restaurant week night as we were there on 16 January and he said it didn’t start at that restaurant until 17 January. However I told him but you are included in the restaurant week festivities that start January 13 so that would be my biggest complaint about this restaurant

We had a great experience at Myron Mixons over the weekend.

The service was great and the food was delicious! My in laws were in town and my wife and them went out this past Saturday.

We had the pull pork sandwiches, fries, mac and cheese and coleslaws.

Everything was delicious and the owner was very friendly and was making his rounds making sure all was well several times to all patrons tables throughout our evening.

If you love BBQ then Myron Mixons is a great spot and thankful we have it right within walking distance of where we live in Old Town!

Great job Myron Mixon’s keep up the great work and we’ll be back!

We had out of town company who had heard of MMPB and they wanted to eat there. The problem is that there were no healthy options for the food. Even the house salad is loaded with cheese, and the salad with chicken was limited to the sauced pulled chicken bbq. I ordered the smoked half chicken and I was told that I could not substitute the 2 side 'fixins' valued at $10 for the $7 arugula salad (which does not comprise cheese). I ordered the collards, which is laced with bacon, etc. All of the "fixins" are loaded with fat and calories. I understand that this is a bbq restaurant but there is no excuse for literally no healthy meal options or sides.

I had never heard of MMPB before my company arrived. I would not recommend this restaurant and, unless I have company again who insist on eating there, I will not eat there again.

As a native Texan, we were excited to try this out. The sausages and sides were pretty good, but unfortunately, the brisket was subpar. You should never be able to hold the entire slice of brisket on your fork without it falling apart.

We love the pulled pork bbq, the ribs, the cornbread, the Brunswick stew, the peach baked beans, and more. And the pie of the day is always delicious. The only downside is the service is usually very slow and they don't come back to give drink refills.

Best BBQ brisket east of Texas (and better than most in Texas). Sides are delicious too, especially the mac & cheese. Wide selection of beers/ales/cider on tap.

Food was good but a few items VERY heavily seasoned with salt; I tried to bare the potato salad which I would’ve liked but the salt content was TOO much. This was also the case for the ribs- some pieces were salty. Whoever the cook was is not ready to free-hand season the food... continue to measure it out. The sauces need a little thickening. Brisket and pulled pork was the fav!

We own a barbecue business and were in town for the Marine Corps Marathon. We decided to eat at Myron's to celebrate finishing another marathon and our anniversary. It's a great place.
