Located in a small part of a parking lot, but the menu has a great variety of seafood and sandwiches plus soups and chili. They even have boardwalk fries. You will be pleasantly surprised 👌👌👌👌👌

I've only had fries and hot dogs from here. My husband had a pulled chicken sandwich and I'm not a fan of the BBQ sauce. I got a slaw dog (hot dog with cole slaw) and it was awesome. But the big hit for me...More

A small place with a big experienced staff to make beef sandwiches, ham and chicked grilled. Very tasty and I have never bought anything here that was not good., the breads and rolls are fresh and it is a pleasant place.

Really fantastic pit beef sandwiches. And I recently kicked pork and beef from my diet, so the pit turkey does not disappoint either. The fries though... yesssss. Bomb.com. This is a much better option for "fast food" than most in the Parkville area.

We always go with the jumbo fries and pit beef sandwich with their homemade bbq sauce. They always have coupons in the local Valupak.

On our first visit for takeout, we tried the sampler and a sandwich with both Pit Beef and Pit Ham. The ribs were very good with the meat extremely tender and falling off the bone, and the pit beef was excellent. The ham was good,...More

The pit beef is very good. There isn't anywhere to sit and eat - purely a take-out spot. I always like to drop by here whenever I'm in the Parkville area. The price of the "value" meals are a bit high.
