We served our first chopped pork sandwich here
In 1990. This is the original Rocklands location — we love the neighborhood and our long-time customers.
What is the Washington, DC Rocklands known for?
Our customers follow their noses here! Driving or walking up Wisconsin Avenue, you ask “mmmm, what’s that amazingly good aroma??” That’s pork and beef and chicken coming out of our wood-only smoker, falling off the bone and ready for a dousing with Rocklands’ Original Barbeque Sauce.
You can also find us on Untappd.
