Old style...as in nothing fancy at all. Just good BBQ.

I have the beef and chicken plate. Just a little of their BBQ sauce and BAM!

They are noted for their ribs but I was not in a rib mood. The folks with me had ribs and LOVED them.

Now for the staff....John was a hoooooooot! Young guy came by every table and acted like he was one of the family...could not have been better!

Great old fashioned bar-b-que, served in large portions. Great value for the money. The link and sliced beef were marinated just right and properly cooked. No complaints!

at $23 for a slab, which consists of 12 ribs, could be a good value. perhaps my order today was not a fair representation of their customary offerings, but today's ribs greatly disappointed us ,particularly in their dryness. the slab is not sliced, so one would have hoped a more tender offering.
the bbq sauce is a little too much like ketchup for my tastes
of 3 meats tried, i enjoyed the links and brisket more, in that order.
my taste for bbq would rank from favorites on down: swinging door, baker's ribs, burns, and goode company

During several visits to Houston, we have searched for memorable BBQ, Texas-style. This is the place. In every list of "the ten best bbq places in Houston, Pizzitola's is mentioned. Interestingly, it never seems to be #1, but it is consistently listed in the top ten. When we arrived, at opening time, just after 11AM, the smell outside was fantastic: meat and smoke. When we sat down, the room was empty. The chatty owner took me on a tour of the kitchen and the bbq pits. We had brisket, ribs, and cole slaw. All flawless. By the time we left, about 12:15, the joint was packed, mostly with good old boys and business men. We left very satisfied.
