I have been in this restaurant twice and both times the food was good. The atmosphere and service was good also. I drive by this restaurant often and the parking lot is full at meal times so it is definitely a stop. I am not fond of really loud restaurants and I was in this one on Friday at noon... More

I went to the Granbury location twice. The food is at best average. We have tried bbq and even their "signature" pork chop which was underwhelming at best and dried out and over cooked at worst. Not impressed with their wine list either. They did have some good choices of beer on tap. Don't see us returning anytime soon.

We visited the mesquite pit in mineral wells for my daughters 16th bday. The employees were very friendly they also were very attentive with our drink refills. They sang happy birthday to my daughter and put a smile on her family with a free dessert of her choice. Would highly recommand this place .

Swung in on a trip to Dallas for a quick bite to eat. Got the lunch special ribs which was 4 ribs, 2 sides, 2 rolls and a drink for $9.99. Everything was delicious, and it was enough food for 2 meals. Service was nice and fast. Would recommend to everyone, wish I lived local.

First off, they have the best ranch dressing around. The fried pickles are great too. I love their bbq and sauce. The okra is perfect. The rolls are light and delicious. This place is not full of fluff and solid. Nothing fancy going on, but good food

I was planning a cross country trip and looked on Yelp restaurants in the area. This is where I discovered Mesquite Pit. Once in Weatherford, I asked locals about eatery suggestions for Texas BBQ. All recommended "The Pit". It is a casual place. Red/White checkerboard vinyl table covers. Iced tea served in mason jars. It smells really good as soon... More
