Shopping over the holidays can be stressful. Not only can stores be crowded, but it can also be hard to find the perfect gift at the right price. I spent Christmas at my aunt and uncle’s house in northern Virginia. My family did some of our shopping at The Fashion Centre at Pentagon City, a mall in Arlington, Virginia. The mall itself is impressive. It is four stories tall and probably has more than a hundred of stores. Since the area is just outside the District of Columbia, it is often packed with both businesspeople and tourists. It was especially crowded this holiday season.

Though the mall has a comprehensive food court, it also contains several highly respected local restaurants. Harry's Smokehouse Burgers & BBQ is one such restaurant. We opted to eat here because my father had heard good things about it through the grapevine and we were delighted when it lived up to its reputation.

Harry’s Smokehouse Burgers & BBQ is a solid and comprehensive barbeque restaurant in a high-traffic area. It’s perfect for either a businessperson on a lunch break or a tourist taking a break from exploring the area.

Menu options at Harry’s Smokehouse Burgers & BBQ include an array of American specialties from across the country. This includes the Carolina Style Pulled Pork, the Texas-Style Smoked Brisket, the Smoked Richmond’s Finest Sausages, and the St. Louis Cut Pork Ribs. Every table has four bottles with barbeque sauces from different regions of the country and every meal comes with one or two traditional sides. Different sides include smoked BBQ beans, broccoli, country greens, homemade French fries, coleslaw, baked macaroni and cheese, baked sweet potato wedges, and chive Yukon gold mashed potatoes.

We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. My mother especially liked the soup of the day, which was a particularly tasty sweet potato soup. She substituted her side for the soup and ate the Caroline Style Pulled Pork as her main course. Personally, I found the barbeque to be pleasantly tender and the sauce to be kicky. I think we all found our meals to be both filling and satisfying.

In addition to a good meal, our service at the restaurant was impeccable. I was remarkably impressed with how quickly we received our meals and how often our drinks were refilled. I believe a truly special restaurant is defined by more than the food it serves, but also by the atmosphere it creates. Harry’s Smokehouse Burgers & BBQ created an atmosphere comfortable both for groups of friends and family.

Harry’s Smokehouse Burgers & BBQ also has a varied selection of beer, wine, and cocktails. The majority of the beer at the restaurant is brewed locally. It’s a good option for anyone in the area looking for a quick drink.
