“Very dependable quality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

I've never been disappointed here, always receiving a good meal from a friendly, professional staff. This is nothing fancy, just fresh, tasty barbeque. I love their brisket (I ask for "moist" although the lean would certainly be healthier) and their chopped beef sandwiches and the baked potatoes are always good. Their ice tea is excellent. Good cobbler (although everyone in my family is sad that they don't seem to ever have cherry anymore. We usually don't get the chicken, as the leg is typically a bit dry.

“The Georgetown Pit Babaque”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

My wife and I have eaten BBQ sandwiches from this restaurant on several occasions; to go! They serves up a fairly decent BBQ sandwich from you choice of BBQ meats. Fairly generous portions with O.K. pricing.
The restaurant uses oak to smoke their selection of meats. So if you like an "oakey" taste you should be pleased.
The restaurant features table in a small dining area. The "drive-thru" windows always seems to be busy..
There is dedicated parking in front. and on one side. But plenty of parking spaces in the adjacent parking lot.

“A very good local Barbeque”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2012

The Pit Barbeque has been a local favorite for many years; their brisket and sausage dinners are very good, while their ribs are average. They offer the option of dine-in “counter order” or drive-thru service. Their best buy is the "Belly Buster Sandwich (brisket)" which comes with choice of chips and a large drink; lemonade is excellent and ice tea is very good. I believe you can get it with a soft drink; however, we have never gotten past the lemonade or ice tea. The "belly buster dinner" is also very good especially with a baked potato. If you don't feel like a large meal or sandwich, they frequently offer a smaller chopped beef sandwich for $0.99. You can buy meats by the pound, in a sandwich, or dinner; which include turkey. You can also buy ice tea by the gallon for under $4. The Pit is located in Georgetown, a mile west (toward Sun City) on Williams Drive (FM-2338) from I-35 exit 261A (northbound) or 262 (southbound).
