This gem does not look like a barbecue place. And some items on the menu are more up-scale than you’d expect. BuT the meats melt in your mouth. And the Mac and cheese is the best in town!

We got together her for my niece's birthday. The service was good. The food was really good as well. The grilled corn, cornbread & pulled pork barbecue were delicious.

We saw Smoke Pit Barbecue in a strip mall when we were coming out of Kroger grocery store and decided to eat dinner there. What a mistake we made! The food was expensive and not very tasty. We tried a three meat platter for $26.00...More

Love the Glen Allen area and was visiting some friends for dinner. The atmosphere was very clean, bright and delightful, out server Taylor was very pleasant and attentive to our needs. Our starter, pork belly cubes were just right and the Fresh Chicharrones (pork skins)...More

We were quite eager for this place to open, seeing as they started as a food truck. However, these are not food truck prices: $12.00 for a one-meat platter with two sides. Granted, it was a nice serving of meat and sides, but there are...More
