We used to go to other Chris & Pitt's all the time many years ago. Back for more tasty aged top sirloin...which is usually not my first choice when ordering steaks...but here it is.

I have been going to Chris & Pitts for years. Especially the one off Euclid and the one on Harbor before they closed. Those staffs loved their jobs and the food was always good.

This isn't your suit and tie Steakhouse. Good meat at a fair price. Baseball Steak and Prime Rib are great.

My best friend treated me here. We had been talking about me trying out this location since I had never been. First off, you are greeted as soon as you walk in the door. Everyone has a smile on their face and in good spirits. Getting seated didn't take long and the establishment had quite a bit of people in... More

My family have dinner here when ever we are in the area which is about once a month. The portions are enormous and if you have children you cannot beat the price, I really disappointed when the Anaheim location was closed.

We walked in to the smell of burning rubber. Servers seemed confused. World famous ribs were like rubber and the sauce was slopped on without thought. My steak was, however, very good. We will never go back.
