The steak is really tasty, they don't put a lot of salsa in it and you can choose between different sizes the sirloin. The steak comes with 2 sides. And i liked the price to!

My husband and I visit Chris and Pitts every few weeks and we're never disappointed!!! The food is amazing and they serve large portions at reasonable prices so you have plenty to take home for another meal or two. The atmosphere is friendly, warm and inviting. The staff knows their stuff and the customer service is the best!! They treat... More

There is nothing that is bad or poor about this restaurant but I do love pulled pork! Ribs are ok but I'm not a fan... unless it's PORK!

Visited here a few times. Haven't figured out why it's always crowded. Wasn't impressed with the BBQ. Brought the family here a few times, but got mixed reviews. Some good and more not happy. Went for lunch with my daughter and we were very happy with the burger special.

Chris & Pitts is a southern California Icon. The sawdust on the floor type of old school bar-be-cue that just makes your mouth water. I will concur with another reviewer as the Blue Cheese Dressing is the BEST ever. I grew up out in Downey and have since moved east, but always speak of Chris & Pitts Homemade Blue Cheese... More

We wanted to eat some BBQ so we came out here for lunch. I ordered the three meat lunch special with mash potatoes and BBQ beans. When the waitress brought the plate I knew I was not going to finish all the food in front of me. One meal can easily serve two people. The food was good and very... More

Chris' & Pitt's has the greatest bar-b-q food. Everything's great, the steaks, the ribs, the chicken. Their dressings are delicious and their onion rings...yum-m-m-m-m. I've loved Chris' & Pitt's food for years.

Chris' & Pitt's is the place to go to for comfort food. Their Babyback ribs are delicious. My husband and I share a full rack and that is plenty for two, we always bring some home. The beef ribs are also the bomb. Salad isn't fancy but it's always cold and crispy. On a cold fall or winter day order... More

Excellent pork and beef sandwiches. Bleu Cheese Dressing is the best I have tasted on the crisp green salads.
