Descent prices, very good food! This is one of the last restaurants in Hickory Hills to survive... they deserve it by their actions and their results of cooking good food. They treat you very WELL!! Their prices are very good!!

A family visit was very pleasant - this place doesn't disappoint for portion size and tastiness ---- the greek chicken was so flavorful-- as well as burgers, pulled pork and rib tips ; their cole slaw hit the spot. The only disappointment was slow service...- but we would go again for sure.More

We had a carry out order for Easter because of the Coronavirus. This was a way different holiday as my husband and I had to be alone. We ordered for us and our family 4 blocks away. Many compliments and thanks go out to Spiros...the manager. All our food was excellent. What a bright light in such a day. You and your staff will be remembered for our dinners and the care you had taken to provide for us Thank you so much Judy and Fred Zurawski and FamilyMore

Ordered on line and picked up our order during pandemic. It was quick and tasted just like it did in the restaurant. Just what we had a taste for. Saucy and spicy!

Service was great, food was great but they automatically add a credit card surcharge. It will be take off, they say, if you pay cash. Heads up.....

Had the burger. Really no flavor. Probably should have tried the ribs, but they looked like short ribs, not baby backs. Place was clean and the service was very good. Prices reasonable.

I take my elderly parents out every Sunday and try and go to new places to change it up a bit. Both parents use walkers and the generous parking and no step entrance make this a winner before we even ate. People here are friendly,...someone always holds a door open for the parent's walkers. We have been here three times in the past year and have never been disappointed. The walls are decorated with all kinds of Chicago memorabilia which makes the wait for food go fast if you look at the walls. Dad always has the ribs which he devours...the corn side is a nice and the coleslaw is good (we are fussy about coleslaw). All the food I have had has been good. My mom loves pork chops and seldom eats them because they are often tough. Last time we were there she had the pork chop(s). She said the chops were the best and most tender she has had in a long, long, time. Wait staff is always polite; it gets pretty crowded here. Will be taking out of town family for dinner this weekend.More

Great fire smoked ribs! Cute decor. Ribs are very tender and rib tips large enough they can be shared. The pulled pork sandwich is great. The cole slaw is very tasty and the fries are crispy on the outside and tender on the onside. Good...parking.More

Stopped at The Pit Rib House for supper on a Saturday night. We were seated immediately-there were only 3 of us. The service was wonderful and the food was yummy! I had never been there before but my husband had with business clients. Our young...son had a kids meal-chicken tender-and he loved them and for a kids meal-there were a lot of tender. The meal came with fries. He also loved their pink lemonade. My husband had the BBQ beef platter and I had the BBPork platter. It comes with two sides which you can choose from fries, coleslaw, baked potato, corn on the cob, or pasta salad. The coleslaw was creamy and delicious. There was a LOT of meat on the platter. I asked for the BBQ sauce on the side-otherwise they pour it all over the top and that's fine if you like a lot of sauce. There are antiques hanging on the walls which our 11 year old found to be interesting. We also took a sandwich to go for our son who was at work-Tex Mex Chicken sandwich. He said it was INCREDIBLE-so delicious. We will definitely visit again.More

This is the second time we have had lunch here . From the management to the staff the service is outstanding , we meet once a month for lunch . This is the first restaurant where the manager has thanked us for returning . The...food is great the bbq is cooked to perfection. From soup to salad to entree the food was great . Danny our server was fantastic, serving 28 people is not easy and he didn't miss a beat . I would definitely recommend the Pit Rib House as an exceptional restaurant that goes out it's way to please the customer .More

this place is in the south suburbs of Chicago, it has plenty of parking. the inside of the place has a lot of memorabilia old pictures of famous baseball players, old phones and other gadgets. The decoration is very nice, the ribs are juice and...tender, the burgers are big they also have pasta dishes, its a kids friendly place. I have been in this place multiple times mostly on weekends I love to dine out 2 to 3 times a week I'm not much into preparing my own meals, Therefore I go to a several restaurants. and this is one of my favorite.More
