Rocklands Barbeque & Grilling Company closes in Rockville (Photos)

Rocklands Barbeque & Grilling Company has closed at Wintergreen Plaza in Rockville. The owner says they lost their lease. Barbecue fans won't have to go far in search of food, however. Mission BBQ recently opened in the same shopping center. The closest Rocklands location to Rockville is probably the one at 2418 Wisconsin Avenue, N.W., in the District.


  1. It was stupid for Rocklands to think they could thrive as a "restaurant" that only had enough seating for 10 people. They should have opened in a larger space like they have at their other locations. Then, maybe they would have lasted. It's a shame, cuz it's getting harder and harder to find beef ribs anywhere.

  2. ..yet Rocklands was there for years, so they were obviously doing something right. I suspect some underhanded crap between Wintergreen mgmt. and Mission BBQ to lure Mission into the center.
