I had the Pit Platter with pork, it was delicious! Generous portions and cooked to perfection. Great service and prices.

My son wanted a burger after his hockey game. I upgraded and picked this place off of TripAdvisor. He checked out the menu and couldn't decide between ribs or a burger. I said get both. My 16 year old bottomless pit downed a full slab of ribs, fries, coleslaw and a Mediterranean burger.

...my first in the Chicago area has been great. The Pit Rib House in Hickory Hills has made it better. Even though this appears to be a busy place the service was excellent and friendly. The food was outstanding and restaurant itself was decorated with historic items from Chicago's by gone days. The appetizer onion rings were awesome, and their... More

Won a gift card for $25. Was in the area. Why not give it a try? Got a slab to go. Gosh. My car smelled lovely all the way back home to Indiana. The meat was smoked perfectly. Fell off the bones. I totally would go back again to try other things on the menu. They have a party room... More

I eat at the Pit at least once every couple months and have always like my food. They give a big portion so if your a light eater you will need to share or take left overs home.

Delicious food and huge portions. I really loved the atmosphere of this place - it reminded me of bbq joints I have visited in the South. The wait staff were friendly and the food was served promptly. My husband had the sampler platter and I had the bbq pork platter. Both were generous portions. We will definitely be returning. It's...

If you are from out of town, and staying in the Hickory Hills, or Bridgeview areas? I highly recommend this restaurant. Fantastic food, great service, huge portions for an extremely fair price.

I enjoyed the pulled pork and beef brisket was outstanding. The server was extremely attendtive and food order was revived quick. We were there on a Friday night around 7:00 pm The flow of people was steady with no wait time. We have gone to Kansas City and this BBQ Pit ranks with the very best. Reservations of 7 or... More
