Don't underestimate the portions here. The 3 meat was surprisingly filling. The beef ribs were one of the best ribs I've ever had. Pulled pork wasn't as good as I expected. The beef brisket was a bit dry. It's nice that you can make your own sandwich with the provided toast. Loved the food here minus the aforementioned. Friendly staff adds to the dining experience.

Was in town for a conference and we heard this was the "best BBQ" in Houston... so of course we had to try it! And The Pit Room didn't let us down! The Meats were great! Well cooked with a good BBQ flavor. I'd tell anyone in Houston (or visiting Houston) to make the time to go visit! The staff was great as well! Can't beat a place that takes BBQ seriously and has fun while doing it! Great Food! Great Drinks! Good for all!

Spicy! They do a pretty good job. I had a brisket sandwich here and it was good! Good barbecue sauce. They seem to like pepper, so you might want to keep that in mind. I personally like the spice, so I tend to add jalapenos as well. DON'T skip out on the pickles. Those things are GOOD. Take some to go in a little baggie. You won't regret it.
