Just traveling thru. The waitstaff seemed like really sincerely good people. The onion rings were amazing, kind of State Fair style. We had the pork sandwich it's not a pulled pork but rather thinly sliced with almost bacon tasting edges. Pretty darn good. I say...More

Larry's has been around since I was young. One of the best places for pit BBQ i've ever found! Also a good place for friend fish.

service lacked quite a lot. waited to be seated, then for menus, then for meal, then for a bbq to go. waitresses were in back all talking and had to get my own drink refilled. sorry I expect better than this.

They have pretty good food and usually friendly service. It's nothing to drive out of the way for. It's just your average BBQ joint!

We stopped here on our way to Tennessee. We were very delighted with the extensive menu. We had the special of the day. It was meatloaf with two sides. It was excellent. The service was good and the servers were friendly.

Very clean, but a bit slow. Nice variety of menu. No brisket if you want it. No sauce on side. Not really a BBQ. More of a decent home style restaurant....and they are getting harder to find.

Larry's Pit BBQ is a local favorite, and we never miss a chance to stop in on our trips to southern IL. Whether you dine in or carry out, Larry's knows how to smoke and barbeque meat.

We visited here on our way back home for the first time. It's not much to look at from the outside as restaurant - but it's reasonably clean and cared for inside. We arrived a little past the noon rush so there were adequate tables...More
