Depending on the time of day, you may want to avoid. Gets way to rowdy at night, and believe me I can handle myself. Just a note. The food is average, the BBQ is average, it's smoky inside as well as out so be warned.

The food came out quick and the waitress was nice. The owner even made rounds to make sure everything was ok. I wasnt very impressed with the food. Value was good but I am from Philadelphia where there are awesome food places and this place was sub par for me but might not be considered that way to others with... More

I found the food to be kind of sickening and I wasn't really even that impressed with the BBQ. This is a big biker bar type establishment. It is a neat place with really nice outdoor seating. You have to order the food yourself which I am not crazy about. There are a lot of TV's inside to drink and... More

I had the ribs and chicken which were good, but the corn was like old field corn and the baked potatoe seemed like it was in the warmer for hours. My wife had the turkey and filling which she said was at best OK ... diner type. Service was good; atmosphere was that of a bar. Will we go back?... More

A coworker and I stopped here yesterday for lunch. The atmosphere was cute, no complaints there, but the service was extremely slow. It took 20 minutes to get our food and the place only had 2 other tables. When the food arrived it was lukewarm and the barbeque sauce had no flavor. There was a lot of food for the... More

Service was very good, nice atmosphere, ribs & chicken were tasty & food was served hot! My co-worker had the veggie pitta with lettuce and big chunks of feta cheese which she really enjoyed! Overall food was good & would not hesitate to go back!

My husband and I had driven past the Bar-B-Cue Pit on one or two other occasions and decided to stop in this time. We live about an hour away. It was a gorgeous summer day so we sat outside. Started with the Pub fries. Huge planks of potato with blue cheese and drizzled with truffle oil. SO good! I had... More

Ribs and Chicken, what can I say. The dinners really don't stand out as anything but average. The ribs were dry but the chicken was fairly decent. If I can convince my wife to give this place another shot someday when passing through, we will do it. She had the dry, over cooked ribs. Convincing her may get close to... More
