Picture a huge pile of tender, shredded beef brisket on a tasty bun, flanked by pickles and coleslaw, and you have a true Southern-style treat. Lucille’s, a popular barbecue house in the District, uses a real wood smoker, so the meat is complex, almost medicinal. The restaurant is named for a real woman named Lucille, and many of the recipes are hers. $9.95, 2245 Village Walk Dr., Henderson, 257-7427.
