The place where time stands still! Along with Beef N Bun, you can relive the 50s anytime you like. They also do good catering work at the Pit.

Soo H.

MMmm... Bbq... I should go and try their ribs. :-)


It looks the the BBQ Pit in National City, where time has also stood still. Bert likes the ribs here.


Interesting joint


Those two places are a step back into time, both in decor and food style, Ken. We've been to many caterings done by the Barbecue Pit; lately though, funerals...
You can see Kirk's post about the ribs (link in second paragraph); Wrangler uses the same technique (and light smoke flavor) as Barbecue Pit. The plus is that afterwards, you can hop across the street and get a shake and fried zucchini at Beef 'n Bun.
The National City location is the other remaining location owned by the same family, cc. The only difference is they are open on Sunday...decor, menu, service, flavors are all the same: the ribs are good.
Old fashioned in so many ways, Bill. We appreciate consistency.

Mist Réme

I was raised on this stuff. I've always ordered the same thing for 40 years. Folks rave about Phils, but if BBQ doesn't taste this way it seems 'wrong' to me...because its practically a part of me.


Really was afraid to put up this post, MR, because I figured nobody would have ever been here. It is so satisfying for me to see the triggered good memories for so many people. The flavors are so familiar.
