Say What You Will Regarding An Infamous Event--But Return For Great Eats

By now, most everyone knows about the horrid hostage event from September, '15. Put it in the past where it belongs.

Went yesterday and had the best BBQ rib dinner. We started with a salad with their Blue Cheese dressing, wow end a big wow. Next we got our platters with ribs, fries, garlic toast, and BBQ beans,,, too much to eat in one sitting. Just ate the leftovers from yesterday and they were as good as ever.

Whenever I want something to eat, don't know what and don't want to cook and can't figure out where to go....I end up at Chris & Pitts and have been for the last 40+ years.... More

This is one of my favorite local steak houses. If you, family, or friends want to really have a big meal, this is it! I've had steaks there are the past 40 years and never get tired of the experience. Others like the chicken or ribs. They even have their own B-B-Q sauces that they sell not only in the... More

Chris & Pitts isn't the type of restaurant that people will rave about, but they have pretty good food for a reasonable price. It's a good restaurant if you want steak without breaking the bank.
