Federalist Pig

Barbecue in Adams Morgan

A humble, shack-like spot with a handful of tables, Federalist Pig barbecues renowned ribs and pork shoulder. View the menu on the tack-up board, place your order at the counter, grab a beer from the cooler, then wait for your meat to arrive. It serves until the food runs out, which happens fairly often. Updates on Twitter (@federalistpig) when it's gone.

The sauces have a spicy kick. Top marks to the Carolina on My Mind chopped-pork-shoulder sandwich.
