We visited the wood pit BBQ this past Sunday, Fathers Day. We expected a small hole in the wall type place, what we never expected was a 50 minute wait for our food, which we left without. NO ONE even told us, how long the wait would be, or ever came out and apologized for the long wait. There were... More

As we approached the door, the smell of smoke (the good kind) was pouring out onto the sidewalk. That was the sign that something good was going to come our way. We waited in line for about 5 - 10 minutes to order. At first, I was a little impatient. But, then, as I saw the food and smelled the... More

My experience at The Wood Pit was very poor. We placed our order and the wait was not bad at all. So, we left and arrived at our destination only to realize that our order was incorrect, as well as we did not have any eating utensils. I called back and they were willing to replace the order. When we... More

...will be back again. Excellent brisket and chopped pork sandwiches. Solid cornbread. Friendly staff @ counter. Can't wait to try ribs on next visit!

The Wood Pit is located on Bloomfield Ave across from a Shell Gas Station. The meat is tender, juicy and always hot. We enjoy the sandwiches and always order a full slab of pork ribs to eat during our meal. I have come here with many friends and family members and everyone always wants to come back to eat here...

We had been waiting to try this BBQ place after a BBQ let down from a groupon deal had us thinking we might have to go down to Nashville to satisfy our cravings. Finally got here and the pulled pork was sooooooo good and soooooo moist and really did melt in your mouth! It didn't disappoint! The serving size of... More

Once in a while, the ribs are dry here. And obviously that's a deal killer. But we went yet again to The Wood Pit, and the experience was great. The ribs were moist, even though we did get some ends. They were smoked perfectly and the rub was heavy but not overly spiced, which we like. The mac n cheese... More

My boyfriend is from Texas and wanted a little taste of home. Several people had recommended this place and most of the reviews were outstanding so we decided to order for delivery (fuel charge or .99 and delivery charge of $5.50). We were both very disappointed. The ribs were super dry, collard greens were disgusting and tasted like they were... More

Located on border of Montclair and Bloomfield, small eatery - about 6 tables (with take-out), with minimal adornments in the restaurant, it really provides the real deal. While we were studying the menu, owner came over and gave us a few ribs to sample (on the house). We ordered the large pork ribs and large brisket plate (each came with... More

We just finished dinner at The Wood Pit, and before we even left the place, my younger son asked, "Can we be regulars?" It was our first time there, and he wanted to make sure that we would return! This is a small store front place, run by really friendly people. Each person who worked there said hello to us... More
