“One of the best B.B.Q.'s in the area”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

We tried Lady & The Pit last week and were really pleased. The previous establishment was good but this has them beat hands down. My wife ordered the Brisket Sandwich and I ordered the Hot Links Sausage sandwich which came with jalapeños which I can eat by the jar. The service was very quick and friendly and the food was delicious. It was hot and fresh and was one of the best B.B.Q.'s we have visited. The décor has been "spruced up" since the last owners were there and is much nicer and pleasant while dining. We will return.

“great food and great value!!”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

This place used to be R&R barbeque, DO NOT be confused this is now a stand out BBQ joint!! The owner is there cooking and serving tables and takes everything everyone has to say to heart!! The ribs are some of the best Ive ever had. I do agree, the atmosphere of the place is a bit blah and you had better like eating closely next to strangers. But the food is great and the portions very generous!! Will go back again and again "but probably take out" .

“Great food, zero ambiance”
Reviewed October 26, 2013 via mobile

Visited this restaurant on a recent trip to SPI. We tried both the pulled pork and the brisket, along with coleslaw, candied yams, potato salad and collard greens. The meats were fantastic - lean and not at all greasy. The sides were solid good food - a well-made potato salad or coleslaw is still just a well-made potato salad or cole slaw. Prices were really reasonable ($8-11 each).

These guys need some interior decorating help!! It's a long, narrow space with some tables down each side. Each table is covered with a striped vinyl tablecloth. Three TVs are mounted in varying places around the room. Walls are otherwise bare. Flat square panels of bright fluorescent light are set into the ceiling, so it feels a bit like eating in a hospital emergency waiting room. The place is spic and span clean, which is awesome. It's just not a pleasant space to enjoy the excellent food.

“Best Bar-B-Que EVER”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

If you are looking for GREAT Bar-B-Que, look no further. This is the best Bar-B-Que in the state of Texas. Natasha Smith the owner is very nice, and will serve you a LOT with what ever you order. We have eaten the Brisket, the Pulled Pork, the Ribs, and many of the sides; and all of it is outstanding. It is in a small shopping are in front of Wal-Mart, but do not let that bother you; this is the BEST.

“Best BBQ in the Valley, no bs...”
Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

I've grown up around excellent Texas BBQ all my life. I happened upon this place and was blown away. I would put my money up that this is the best BBQ in the entire Valley. Everything is absolutely delicious and BOY do they serve hefty portions! Great food and great people. We're LUCKY to have BBQ like this so close to the Island.
