Once in a while, the ribs are dry here. And obviously that's a deal killer.
But we went yet again to The Wood Pit, and the experience was great. The ribs were moist, even though we did get some ends. They were smoked perfectly and the rub was heavy but not overly spiced, which we like. The mac n cheese was great, cheesy and NOT dry. The potato salad is very good.
I have to agree that I was not too impressed with the collard greens last time, so we did not try them this time. The baked beans were very good as usual - the sauce is very thick and syrupy, so if you don't like sweet backed beans, don't get them. The green beans were very good as well. The french fries were excellent this time, almost Belgian in that the outside was crispy but the middle was creamy almost.
We got the chopped pork too, and it was great. My daughter had the chopped chicken, it was great too and she's a picky eater. They have mild, medium, and hot BBQ sauces if you want. The meat is more than good enough and moist enough to eat without sauce.
They also have some fine desserts, for this meal they had red velvet cake, carrot cake, banana pudding, and peach cobbler. The only issue I had with them, other than YUMMY!!!, was that I didn't detect any Nilla wafers in the banana pudding, which is what I expect in a Southern style banana pudding. It seemed to be banana pudding with slices of banana but no cookies in it.
I can say that occasionally, maybe 10% of the time, we've gotten dry ribs here. But usually it is great. My spouse goes there with friends from work and also brings in colleagues from all parts of the US, including the South. They all really like The Wood Pit and the owner will make you some vinegar and mustard sauce if you ask nicely.
