Love their BBQ and you get big pieces, too. There is no room to sit inside and there's a picnic bench outside. But if it's cold outside... this is more of a take-out establishment. We are never disappointed with what we order.

“Decent BBQ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

Stopped by to pick up a quick sandwich on my way home and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the BBQ. I ordered a beef brisket sandwich. It was a hefty portion, tender, smoky, with burnt edges to boot. Brisket is tough to prepare properly and they did a nice job. I'm curious to try out their other offerings.

“Amazing BBQ/Seafood Carry-out and Catering”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

It's the Pit's has possibly the best slow-cooked BBQ chicken on the planet. The next time you're heading over the Chesapeake Bay bridge look for it in Stevensville MD as soon as you land on Kent Island. We have the number programed into our phones so we can call in our order from the bridge. It's a small no frills, carry-out establishment with a single picnic table outside for eating on-site. There are several trophies on display from recent regional cooking competitions. Everything we've tried is great but the chicken is our favorite and highly addictive! Fortunately it's also a great deal--a whole chicken with 2 large salads is under $15. You can add half a dozen deliciously-spiced oyster shooters and still keep it at around $20. This will feed 2 people a hearty dinner with leftovers or dinner for 3 or 4.
