Lunch today and the ribs did not disappoint. Meaty,tender,flavorful and not fatty. Only BBQ place I can remember ever having table service. The waitresses were super attentive and friendly. I was offered a brisket sample and the meat was as tender as any brisket I've...More

This was our first stop on our 7 day trip to explore BBQ. We are not from Texas and have our own ideas of how BBQ should taste, and Pizzitola's did not disappoint. We shared a sampler that had brisket, ribs, sausage, and chicken and...More

Our party of four had lunch here recently. It was the first time any of us had been here. It was a disappointment. I had the pulled pork sandwich which was the worst one I have ever eaten. I didn't care for the sauce and...More

The servers are all super nice. The owner is on site and personally talks to most everyone. Everyone knows everyone. It went from only a couple of people to standing room only in less than 30 minutes. You can get your choice of meats as...More

Had dinner with an out of town friend on a weeknight. Only a few customers inside which was nice--easy parking, lots of attention by the wait staff. This isn't the common cafeteria style bbq, they have a real menu, pick your meat(s) and sides. Service...More

Had dinner here on 07/18/2015. A small, local place. The staff could not be kinder; they even gave my friend a free t-shirt for his wife when they didn't have one in his size. The food was great! We had bbq brisket with sausage and...More

I am a frequent luncheon diner at Pizzitola's. I usually eat either the 1/2 chicken-on-the-bone plate or the rib plate. Both are as good as you can get in Houston. The chicken is slow smoked over wood logs with no basted sauce while cooking; if...More
