We just happened to see this place after missing another place that was closed. Glad we found this BBQ joint. It is kind of hidden. I had the brisket combo meal and the wife had the brisket sandwich. We both found the brisket tender and flavorful. They did not short change you on the brisket. The bread they put the... More

I'll keep it short. There is nothing this place serves that isn't awesome. The worst item they have is the mac & cheese..which isn't too bad. The ribs are ridiculous. The cornbread...is so addictive that there should be regulations in place as to how often you may have it. Best value is probably their rib combo (2 sides, drink, half... More

We have used PGH BBQ company now on 2 occasions for parties at home. Their brisket and pulled pork are amazing. Great on a plate or sandwich. Good smokey flavor. Brisket is best we have had in burg. Also great cornbread. Their other sides such as cole slaw. Beans. Mac and cheese are good but not great. For catering they... More

After passing this BBQ place many times and reading reviews on line we decided to give it a try for Fathers Day. We have been on a bit of a mission to really find a GREAT BBQ joint in the Pittsburgh area. Have been to a good number but still quite a few to go. We were 4 in our... More

A BBQ gem next to our hotel. After watching the Steelers crush the Bills, we came by for a carry out order. A full rack of St.Louis ribs, baked beans, Mac & cheese, corn bread and coleslaw. The ribs were killer. Moist and meaty. Their regular sauce on the side was perfect with the rib meat. A must get item.... More

We were staying in the Days Inn on Banksville Rd and found this place 100 feet away. This location was take-out only but that was fine with us. After a sample taste we ordered one $7 sandwich each of pork & beef brisket. Went back to our room & put half of the contents of each in the fridge to... More

At the Banksville Road location, we have never eaten there; have only gotten take-out. Everything on the menu is delicious, ribs, brisket, chicken, cornbread, etc. Tastes like homemade. They cater, too. Unfortunately their are hours are only seasonal, so be sure to call to make sure they are open before going. Highly recommended.
