Hill Country Barbecue Market and Annapolis Smokehouse & Tavern make OpenTable Inc.’s 2014 list of the country’s 30 best BBQ restaurants.
Just 12 states and D.C. are represented on the list.
OpenTable says it based the list on more than 5 million user reviews covering more than 19,000 BBQ restaurants across the country. California led the list with six restaurants. Illinois and New York each have five on the list, followed by Texas with four.
While the D.C. Hill Country made the list, the restaurant is not strictly local. Hill Country, with original locations in Manhattan and Brooklyn, opened its Penn Quarter location on 7th Street, NW in early 2011.
