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

The people that work there are very personable. Very helpful as well. The ribs are awesome especially the st. Louis style. Really good cornbread and macaroni salad along with the pulled pork. It is such a friendly nieghborhood kinda place.

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.

I'm a local and eat at the Delmont location. We have never been disappointed by the food, service, and all around great staff. My husband and I SHARE the rib combo....we get 3 ribs each and a side, with a drink. For about $8 when you share, your won't find a better tasting barbeque for sure, and just about any... More

We had the Pittsburgh Barbecue Company cater a large picnic (100+ people) over Memorial Day and they were great! Their prices are reasonable, they were friendly and helpful the day of the event, and best of all the food was amazing. The pork from the pig roast was great, they brought all of the napkins/plates/utensils, and all of the sides... More
