The Pit Barbeque on Burnet Road

This is The Pit Barbeque at 4707 Burnet Road. Every time I’ve ever been by there, it has not been possible to stop, or the brisket has been sold out, or it’s been a Sunday. So today was a first. Even so, the small counter dining space and all the tables were occupied. So it had to be takeout. There was a line, a fast-moving one. In a corner and not too loud, there was a TV showing business news. Except for an older, probably retired, couple, everyone seemed to be stepping out from work.

The most prominent decor items were a homemade clock on a background of a wooden jogsawed shape of Texas, plus a lit plastic sign touting the three portion sizes of banana pudding and of peach cobbler. I like it that each table has its own napkin dispenser.

We left with a pound of the extra lean brisket and a large chopped-beef sandwich. These were very pleasing items, with no evidence of “ketchup-y” stuff anywhere to be found. The menu contains all the customary items. I’m happy that this was the luncheon destination today. We saw a lot of happy people there, including the staff. Since it took so long for The Pit’s schedule and location and ours to coincide, I suppose that it may be a while before they do again. I’ll be very pleased when that happens.
