We have used PGH BBQ company now on 2 occasions for parties at home. Their brisket and pulled pork are amazing. Great on a plate or sandwich. Good smokey flavor. Brisket is best we have had in burg. Also great cornbread. Their other sides such as cole slaw. Beans. Mac and cheese are good but not great. For catering they will provide servers for a fee. Their joint on Banksville good for take out.

After passing this BBQ place many times and reading reviews on line we decided to give it a try for Fathers Day. We have been on a bit of a mission to really find a GREAT BBQ joint in the Pittsburgh area. Have been to a good number but still quite a few to go. We were 4 in our group and ordered St. Louis smoked ribs, brisket, pulled pork and smoked chicken with variety of sides. The pulled pork was pretty good as was the chicken but nothing special. The brisket was sliced way too thick, was not tender and really had little taste. The ribs were the biggest disappointment as were way over smoked leaving them DRY and tough. Both BBQ sauces were good. Sides were Mac n cheese, beans and cornbread.....Mac n cheese was COLD, BBQ beans were just OK and cornbread was pretty good. Portions good size. Overall just very average to disappointing. Have had MUCH better and several other close to downtown Pittsburgh BBQ joints!!!!....sorry PBBQ Co maybe will give you another shot.

A BBQ gem next to our hotel. After watching the Steelers crush the Bills, we came by for a carry out order.

A full rack of St.Louis ribs, baked beans, Mac & cheese, corn bread and coleslaw.

The ribs were killer. Moist and meaty. Their regular sauce on the side was perfect with the rib meat. A must get item.

A second must get is the cornbread. A perfect side.

The baked beans has great flavour, not overcooked or over sauced. A great variety of beans used.

The Mac and cheese and the coleslaw are nice.

We've been to many great que houses and PBC rates among the best.

We'll be back.

We were staying in the Days Inn on Banksville Rd and found this place 100 feet away.
This location was take-out only but that was fine with us.
After a sample taste we ordered one $7 sandwich each of pork & beef brisket.
Went back to our room & put half of the contents of each in the fridge to enjoy another day.
Great meat & BBQ sauce.
