I love finding these small BBQ places when I travel. In my experience, they always serve the best BBQ and have great atmosphere. Pit Stop BBQ is no exception. The restaurant is decorated like someone's grandparent's basement with wood panel walls, and vintage radios on shelves and antique Victoria's in the the corners. The food was delicious!
