The District Lounge's 'cue is serious, and Reverend Morton's Savory Bar-b-que Savior Sauce-a relishy, sweet glop the District crew administers judiciously to all meats-could score a ribbon in a Kansas City cook-off. The tri-tip's middle is pink, its skin charred yet juicy, and it arrives about eight lengths to an order. Ribs plop off easily, and enough chewy meat hangs off the bone to fill you and create a separate hamburger. Chicken wings slap the tongue with their salty, mesquite burn and await a dunking into a thimble of great mustard-ranch dressing.
