Welcome to downtown Odenton! I have been coming here for 24 years. This is the best roadside pit BBQ place I have been to in MD. Always great any season of the year. They also have a great party menu.

We have been here a few times and the food has Been okay. The kids love to go here to get the snowballs. With other BBQ places close by, it would not be my first choice but I would try again. We always like to support local businesses.

Was driving by and looked like a worthwhile bet, helped by the smoke coming out of some device in large quantity. Korling must be a serious pit master-I had the same thing and don't think I or anyone else could do this at home. Very thin-sliced, every bite infused with real smoke flavor and piled high for $6.99. This is... More

I had driven past this place for years but had never stopped to get anything until now. I got something simple...a pit beef sandwich. Honestly, I can do better myself. Additionally, the wait was longer than I anticipated.

I had a rib craving a couple of weeks ago and went to this place. HORRIBLE. HORRIBLE. HORRIBLE. These ribs were so touch I couldn't eat them and so tasteless I didn't want to. And they were freaking expensinve.

This is a very well received carryout. Menu is American and service is very good. There are a few tables outside if you choose to eat on site.

I ordered ribs here. They were absolutely inedible. Tough and tasteless. I threw half a rack away. Not being from Maryland, I had no idea what pit beef was until I tasted it in B'more. Can't remember the name of the place. It was tasty. Neighbors told me about this stand in our neighborhood that served good pit beef. I... More

When I moved into this area and saw this by the road side it looked like something special. I have eaten there several times and can only say it isn't. The food I have had, roast beef or pulled pork sandwiches are mediocre at best. The fries were good and remind me of the fries at Three Guys. The seating... More

I went to this place a few years back and wasn't quite impressed, and so I decided I wouldn't go back. And then last month, I thought I wanted to give it another try. What if my first experience was not the norm, but an anomaly perhaps? So here I was. Unfortunately, it turned out to be a dud the... More

Pit beef and pit turkey are very good choices. The meatloaf is a good choice also. Used them for supplying food for an event. Everything was easy to set up and they were very helpful when we picked it up. Good to use a local company
