BBQ captivates you all the way from the parking lot

Open the door and wow, wood burning bbq, smokey aromas through out the place. Huge portions, ala cowboy, even the soda. Have tried everything and cant complain about anything. You can find a lot of classics you cant find anywhere else in the area such as chicken fried steak, ground beef steak, meat... read more

This is a real gem when you are hungry. The staff is very accommodating and is willing to work with a big party when the restaurant is busy. The food is delicious and the proportions are generous. I would certainly eat there again.

It had been several years since I was in the area. Chris and Pitts is still great. Baby backs tender with a rich bark. Pulled Pork Sandwich very good. Soups made in house and hit the mark. 65 years and going strong. If your a clean freek you might pass.

I have been eating at Chris' & Pitt's since I was a little girl. We would go to the Bell location (not open anymore). They have great food at affordable prices.

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. Prices reasonable. Very casual. Salad good. Chili beans very good. The top sirloin is the way to go and was excellent! Not sure why most of... More

Kids ok to take without people staring. Love the babyback ribs and Mash potatoes with gravy. Salad dresses should be asked for on the... More

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. After they closed I started coming here. The staff is now younger and you don't seem to get the love you did from the old staff.... More

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