We went as four adults and two kids. We ordered the family sampler with the sides upgrade. We had more that plenty, so I hope you have a refridgerator for the left overs. I truly enjoyed the brisket and the huge chiken wings. Great sause...More

This place is legit. Don't let the store front hide this gem. Food is always good when sitting down. They delivered a full catered spread to our house that was also excellent.

Had take out from The Wood Pit last week. The portions were good sized. One of us had the brisket which was extremely tender, but a little too fatty. Another had chopped pork (expected more of a pulled pork). Again, very tender and would have...More

Was so disappointed with Hills Country in NYC, decided to take out my favorite Brisket from Wood Pit. Do not go on a romantic date there: the place is small and you will look like a piglet when done :-) This place never disappoints-the food...More

Just about the best bbq I have ever had (may be the best). I usually find ribs either too greasy or too dry. These are a perfect middle ground. Moist, tender, but not slimy. Very very good smoked flavor. The brisket is just as good....More
