Been here twice in last 3 weeks. I had their pulled pork plate with sides of mashed potatoes and ochre, plus a corn muffin. I am very particular about how the pork is prepared and I'd say Pit to Plate has it just about perfect....More

The ribs were a little dry and expensive. The brisket sandwich very good. Wings good. Beans good. Mac and cheese ok. Chilli Mac was $5 for about 5 mouthfuls. Waitress was good, but seemed she didn't know the answer to anything we asked.

I was traveling for business & had a taste for some BBQ & found Pit to Plate on TripAdvisor. I ordered the combo pulled pork & brisket and it was very moist and delicious. The basic BBQ sauce (mildly sweet) did it for me, but...More
