I'm definitely a fan of the Pit Room. The brisket is moist and tender and all of the delicious sides compliment the meats perfectly. It's a small and cozy place inside, but I was surprised that they were actually connected to the bar next door. So not only can you order some delicious BBQ, but you can eat it at the bar next door which also has a nice patio deck. Nothing better than BBQ and drinks! The staff is fast and friendly and the small restaurant is clean and cozy. There is ample parking, especially since the parking is combined for both establishments. It's the perfect place for outdoor BBQ especially when the weather is just right!

Stopped here for lunch in early June 2017. Incredible BBQ! Had brisket sandwich with slaw side. Amazing. Also enjoyed the house-made pickles on the side. This place is a bit expensive to go often but I will be back for a treat! Update: Nov 8,2017 Brisket sandwich is still amazing. Coleslaw and barbecue sauce use way too much vinegar. Still, a great dining experience.

I was part of a party of 7 that stopped by on a late Saturday afternoon. The line was not too bad, and it moved pretty well anyway. All of us were first timers to The Pit Room. The consensus was that we loved the food. The price is slightly higher than the BBQ chains around town. The only drawback we had was that indoor seating was limited in the main building. Thankfully, it was nice day and we sat outdoors.
