We have averaged one or two times a month going to PBBQ and it keeps getting better and better. Our latest round of brisket and St. Louis style ribs was again outstanding! Combined them with greatest coleslaw and collard greens for a wonderful DELICACY! Even...the buns that come to make sandwiches are light and fresh. They were out of their wonderful jerky, but we’ll be back for more...More

You can believe everything these folks say on their website. Having moved here from Texas, we have been on a search for great Q. Now having sampled Pittsburgh BBQ Company on Banksville Road, I can attest as follows: Brisket - real Texas style - tender...& moist - excellent - 5 Ribs - both St.Louis & larger spare - perfectly prepared - excellent - 5 Collard Greens - seasoned wonderfully - very tasty - excellent - 5 Beans - unique serving with multiple bean varieties - so flavorful - excellent - 5 Sauce - it is all great with or without - excellent - 5 Beyond this, the folks are wonderful, everything was packed perfectly & we had a jerky sample that beats anything I ever had in Texas! You cannot go wrong at Pittsburgh BBQ Company!!!More

Some of the best places are off the main trail. It is true with this place. Went and got take out for the family, For one, the owner and the employees have great personalities and enjoyable to talk with, and the main reason you would...go, the food. It was hot, delicious, and to add to it all, the corn bread is the real deal, you can taste in everything you eat on how home made it is. Thank you for a great dinner. We will be back.More

My son and I were excited to try it out cause it had good reviews. I ordered the chicken and he had the pulled pork. It came if of a cold buffet set up. It was cold and dry. Huge disappointment.

We stopped here to pick up a couple brisket sandwiches. We had been to the other location so we felt comfortable with this choice. Tough place to find first of all. We managed to get to the place and it looked nice. Ordered the sandwiches...and left for home. When we started to eat the sandwiches we could not believe how tough the meat was. Almost impossible to take a bite without ripping large pieces of meat out of the sandwich! I have never had brisket this tough. Totally not typical for this place. I dont know what happened but this experience has me a bit cautious about going back here again.More

Brisket and smoked chicken was great, also nice choice of sides. Reasonable prices. Staff was very catering and happy.

Grabbed some lunch here with coworkers. The Pulled Pork and Brisket were absolutely perfect...they both had lots of flavor and were quite juicy. The side of Mac N Cheese was quite flavorful too! The spicy sauces had a little bit of zip to them, and...were a nice addition to the sandwiches. Keep in mind they have specific hours when they are open...March to November, Wednesdays thru Sundays (no Mondays or Tuesdays). Check their website to be sure, but don't go on the wrong day, or else you will miss out.More

We've had food from PGGQ several times and I've never written a review. This barbecue is great! Reasonably priced, delicious food without all the work. My favorite is the pulled pork. We grabbed food yesterday to take to a family gathering. Pulled, pork, chicken, brisket,...mac and cheese, greens and cole slaw. They provided the fresh rolls, spicy and mild barbecue sauce and even offered plates and flatware. All this for food for a large group for under $100! And, best part, leftovers!! No need to cook all day when this is available.More

I usually do not write reviews, but in this case I have to share what an incredible turkey Pitt BBQ smoked for our family Thanksgiving. It was unbelievable! It made our family event. I am a big fan of their ribs and brisket, but was...hesitant to do the smoked turkey thing because I never did it before. WOW! Well worth it. Mere words can not describe how good the turkey was. I will never eat a regular turkey again. Great job!!More
