Love The Sauce

Sometimes the smoked meat makes BBQ good, with this place it's the sauce and sides that set it apart. I ordered a sausage and burnt ends lunch platter which comes with bread, slaw and fries. I asked about the sauce and learned there is a sweet sauce and a "hot" sauce. I got the hot sauce on the... read more

Love the atmosphere here. Brick walls, antique doors and windows separate different areas. The food is delicious, service is good and food is served quickly. They can handle a crowd so usually there is no wait for a table. You MUST try their bread pudding.

Had the Corral for 2 good sized portions on the 2 sides: smoky, thick beans & slaw dinner also included bread slices and very good dill pickles--bread really not necessary as other portions large the full slab of "whole pork ribs" was very large; ribs smoked to near perfection--no sauce needed (we always order "dry" & sauce for taste if...

The food at Summit Hickory Pit is amazing. This is authentic BBQ. Atmosphere is comfortable and the service is exceptional. Sadly, because of the pricing, we often go to another BBQ place in the area that isn't as good but the pricing is much more reasonable.

We just went here, and we will definitely be going back! The sauce was delicious, and the meat was tender, not dry. Our server was amazing too!!

The food is very good here. I live nearby and my family and I pass by nearly every day. The smoke comes wafting across the road and you can anticipate that first whiff ...oh MAN! It makes me hungry! The beans have a great smoky flavor and the pork ribs are very tender. Even without sauce, these meats have a... More

All the food is of good quality and very tasty. There was nothing negative about this restaurant. The staff was very helpful because we had a large party. They were very accommodating and all were knowledgable about the menu.

Service was mediocre; meat was very dry and the BBQ sauce tasted more like something that could be purchased in the grocery store rather than freshly made. We definitely will NOT be back!
