Ate here for the first time after many times driving past this place. Showed up about 6pm with my wife and two daughters. The place was pretty much empty with the exception of a couple of people sitting at the bar. We found this unusual for a restaurant on a Saturday. We proceeded to sit down and look over our... More

Hello Jorge, We are sorry that you did not find your experience with us to be worthwhile. We understand that an extended wait for food is never pleasant but to learn that the food was not as tasty as it could have been upon arrival is extremely disheartening to us. We apologize that you did not enjoy the food and... More

The have a nice atmosphere. It is a great place to go. They have a large selection of sauces. The only down side is that they use to much salt for my taste.

We finally got to Deland to check out Pitmasters. My husband had the 'combo for one' plate - $13.99 and a whole lot of food! He rarely orders bbq since he likes to cook it himself. He proclaimed this to be very good. I had 1/4 chicken and 3 ribs. Both dishes came with 2 sides. The coleslaw was okay.... More

Great combination appetizer with candied jalepenos, cream cheese, fried tortilla chips. Ribs were good, meat loaf too. Staff was very attentive and fun. Would try this place again if in the area.

The dry rub spare ribs were large but mostly fat and bone. Very little lean meat. The baked beans were the consistency of mash potatoes apparently over cooked and not tasty at all. Their fries are the typical from frozen variety with only flavor the amount of salt you add to them. Wife had the baby back with 2 vegetables... More

I am sorry your visit was a disappointment and When I looked and saw you were from the area of NC where I grew up it was even worse. I grew up in Heaton/Elk Park/Boone so I learned to cook there. I am happy to say that your visit is not what we usually hear or we obviously could not... More

Always seems to be a busy place by the look of the parking lot each time we drove by, but when we finally stopped in to check it out, our rib meals were just average ribs, not quite cleaned of enough scrap, cooked just barely long enough, and with add whatever bbq sauce to the already sauced ribs you might...

Had an amazing lunch and can't wait to go back! There were so many great choices on the menu, although it was hard to choose I already know my next orders for my many visits to come. The salad bar was also one of the best around. Our service was top shelf and if you can ask for Jackson I... More

The service was friendly and attentive. The Burnt End Platter was very good. Tender and juicy. The baked beans were oven done and mushy. The 1/2 platter of baby back ribs were tasty. The Cole slaw was very good and very light on the mayonnaise. The Texas toast was not crisp as you would expect.
