“Best bbq in Port Isabel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

This little place is in a strip mall in front of Wal Mart. I had pulled pork and sliced brisket. Pulled pork was excellent and the brisket was just ok. Very fair prices and good service.

“Outstanding BBQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

First class meat -with the sauce on the side (use to taste - it is good!) Sides were excellent too and try the sweet potato pie.
Very good service and nice basic dine-in. Take-away too - and you will want to!

“Tasty BBQ.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

And the sides, including mac & cheese and collard greens, are great, too! Huge portions on everything. Not much ambience but the restaurant is very clean

“Just okay BBQ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

Have to disagree with other reviews, this is not the best BBQ I have ever had. Not even top 10. Portions are good size, but didn't like the flavor at all. We had ribs and chopped brisket with coleslaw. The meats had an overpowering smoke taste that I didn't like and otherwise just too plain for us. The brisket had too many fatty pieces in it and the coleslaw had a strange aftertaste. Glad we tried it, but would not be back. Try Longhorn Cattle Co. in San Benito if you want great BBQ!

“One of the best B.B.Q.'s in the area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

We tried Lady & The Pit last week and were really pleased. The previous establishment was good but this has them beat hands down. My wife ordered the Brisket Sandwich and I ordered the Hot Links Sausage sandwich which came with jalapeños which I can eat by the jar. The service was very quick and friendly and the food was delicious. It was hot and fresh and was one of the best B.B.Q.'s we have visited. The décor has been "spruced up" since the last owners were there and is much nicer and pleasant while dining. We will return.
