Dinner recommendations in DC with no reservations

Like many, I'm coming to town for the NCAA tournament at the last minute and am looking for some ideas for some good places that don't take reservations since we don't really have plans. Somewhere with quality drinks (or craft beers) to sip while we wait would be a plus. Barbecue or southern cuisine even better. Thanks!

    Where are you looking geographically?

      Open to anything in VA or DC area. We're staying in Arlington but we'll go anywhere convenient to Metro.

    2. Go to Rocklands in Arlington for bbq, though it's much better for chopped pork than the ribs. Also excellent grilled/smoked fish and other similar items. The bbq egg rolls are very good. Sides of Texas corn pudding and greens.
