Beef was wonderful. Add onions and horseradish and you’ve got tender tasty joy. The gravy fries were heavy and filling, but very tasty. This is a carry out only place, but a good taste of Baltimore.

I get the large pot beef, mid-rare, every time. Have only been disappointed one time and that was this week. The sandwich was okay but far from mid-rare. I didn't say anything. The staff gave me the impression that they were not in a good...More

I haven't been there for a couple of months, but I have never been disappointed with their Pit Beef sandwiches. A couple of the people give samples without asking before they make the sandwich. I am always impressed by that. If they don't offer a...More

This is a great place for pitbeef. The portions are generous, the food tastes great, and the staff are excellent. It has no seating though. You are allowed to take your food next door to Sorrentos, but I would recommend just carrying out.

Kirkwood is a tiny little carryout place on RT 40 across the street from a huge diner. When you order a Pit sandwich, whether it is Beef, Ham, or Turkey they will cut it in front of you and offer you a slice to taste....More

Tried my standby, a pulled pork. Good size portions at a decent price and it tasted ok. Was not as tender as I like, but ok. Better than some places but I would still go to Mission BBQ if it was nearby. Next time I'll...More
