Fat Pete’s BBQ Opens Outpost Downtown
The downtown lunch crowd has a new destination for burnt ends, pulled pork and ribs.
Fat Pete’s BBQ opened a new eatery at 801 18th St. earlier this week, according to the company’s Twitter account. The Golden Triangle BID also tweeted about the opening:

A walk through the restaurant’s menu reveals burnt ends, pulled pork, racks of ribs, smoked turkey and sides like baked beans, collard greens and cornbread. Other menu items include smoked salmon, coleslaw, watermelon slices and Mississippi mud pie.
Fat Pete’s also slathers its meat in six kinds of regionally inspired barbecue sauces in varieties like sweet, spicy, vinegar and mustard.
The company’s original location opened in Cleveland Park roughly two years ago, and there might be more Fat Pete’s on the way, the restaurant says.
“We’ll hopefully have 10-15 restaurants in the next couple of years,” company chef Howard “Hondo” Greenberg told Washington City Paper in August.
