HOUReview

Ask five Houstonians what their favorite BBQ place is and you’ll get 10 different answers. Rather than plan a day-long smoked meat crawl, save yourself some time and go straight to The Pit Room. Their menu features all of the barbecue and sides you expect, along with their popular brisket tacos that come with homemade tortillas cooked in brisket fat. Fill up a tray, grab a beer from the bar, and make sure to get some elote or potato salad before you head outside to the back patio.
