Great authentic North Texas BBQ. Been eating here since a kid, nothing changes and that's what I like!

“Dull sauces and uninteresting food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

Many years ago this restaurant had very good food. It's changed. The ribs taste to me like they've been sitting there for a while and the sauce is too sweet for my taste. Nice staff, though

“Very good barbeque”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

The barbeque here is very good...it is tasty and filling. I believe it is an old family recipie. It is well worth the trip to El Cajon. And they do excellent catering for large parties during the summer

“Great sauce, yum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

I have been to all of the BBQ pits in San Diego, you can't go wrong with their food. Lots of people like some of the other BBQ joints in San Diego, but for my money the "Pit" is the best. Ham, Beef, Ribs, its all good.
