Pretty Decent BBQ

We ate here after a day of rafting and hiking. BBQ just sounded good to us. The atmosphere is fun and laid back. Just like the area. The wait staff were very good and quick to service.

The ribs were average. Very tender, but the sauce wasn't anything special. I was a little surprised they were over $20 I think. I would try the prime rib if I were to go back. The Yuengling pitchers hit the spot!

The food was good but nothing special, the lighting was super dim in the restaurant so I shined my phone light into the cracks and crevices and the place is filthy. I had a good time but I would never go back.

I'm always in for finding a good place to eat ribs. Dirty Ernie's was a good fit for my taste buds. I've eaten a lot of ribs from different parts of the country and these are right up there with the best ribs I've had.

Second time eating at this Pit. Willing to return. Food is good, although not cheap. Tonight, there were several rowdy kids in the play area, but there is a play area, if you like that. Service is friendly. Ambience is super casual and fun. Enjoy.

the pizzas are pretty good but for a pizza I thought that the price was a little high. It isn't somewhere that I have visited other then once.

I was truly excited to dine at this open atmosphere restaurant but a bit dissappointed after having done so. I mean the food was good but not great. The atmosphere was typical of an open area diner and the staff were okay. Maybe my friends who referred it to me were a nbbit more impressed than I was.

We were lucky enough to get seated very quickly for 10 of us. Sirloin was excellent and cheeseburger as well. They definitely know how to cook some fries too. Service was quick and efficient. Nice local place worth stopping in for.

I went to this restaurant based on the reviews. It was true as it was a great experience.. The meat melted in your mouth as it was so tender. Side dishes were large and the appetizer (potato skins) were perfect. Parking lot was not paved and it was really muddy as I ended up tracking the mud into my car.
