Two of us for dinner. Though we often ask for bbq ribs, we thought to try something different. Our selections were chicken kabob and a gyros plate. The gyros plate came with a small salad. Delicious. Large portions. We were very satisfied with our dinners....More

Again, a Groupon coupon, directed us this superb suburban neighborhood mainstay. We loved everything about it. Starting with a small but discriptive beer list (Czech pilsner great) to the large BBQ menu we were impressed. We had baby back ribs (wet) and Atlantic salmon (dry)...More

Although there is a full menu available, I can only comment on the Ribs, which is the only item I have ever ordered. They are meaty, stick to the bone and delicious.

Carried out a full slab of baby back ribs and BBQ shrimp. Tasted great. More shrimp is always better. They provided crosshatch potato slices instead of regular fries. The cole salad portions were tiny. A five dollar coupon helped.

I like to take out but there is a decent bar and seating arrangement. They have a large menu and all of their barbecue is slow roasted and delicious

We tried BBQ Pit in Highland Park because we received a gift certificate as part of an auction we won for a charity event. We were very pleased. My husband is a BBQ connoisseur. Often we find that good BBQ is quite costly. This place...More
