After reading Trip Advisor reviews, we visited Pop Pop’s Pit BBQ in Myrtle Beach. The restaurant is in a small strip mall & the inside is narrow. The only downside was the restaurant was very smoky inside with little ventilation. The pulled pork sandwich was...More

No. I do offer a vinegar and mustard sauce, but 99% of what I serve is a tomato based sauce with a good amount of vinegar. We serve our bbq wet. Thanks Joseph
