“Cold dry chicken”
Review of JL's Open Pit Bar-b-q - CLOSED

JL's Open Pit Bar-b-q
Cuisines: Barbecue
Restaurant details
Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

We went with a group of 15 early on a Sunday evening. The service and staff was good. The barbecue chicken lacked flavor and was very dry. The sides were on par with the chicken.

We came here thinking it was a southern Bar-B-Q place and they told us they no longer were JL's but were a diner now. The food may have been great but we did not eat it since we had our mouths set on southern smokehouse food.

Stopped in for a late lunch while traveling and pleasantly surprised by the food. The meat is cooked just right and plenty of sides from which to choose. We also noticed the tea tasted nice and was refreshing. Service was good. Definitely a nice change from regular chain restaurants while traveling along the interstate.

This is a favorite lunch stop for myself and a couple of co-workers. We all have a favorite when it comes to the meat selection but all love the sweet potato fries!
