This is take-out only, but the food is wonderful. The two of us got a chicken plate and a brisket plate and had enough for dinner and lunch the next day,

Texas pit always has amazing barbecue! The brisket is so good and tender, great ribs, delicious chicken! The sides were great and the people were extremely friendly and helpful. This is a must visit anytime I am in St. Thomas.

The bbq is more islander than Texas. They offer brisket, ribs and chicken. All in platters with two sides. Prices are 10 to 20 dollars depending on the meat combination. Its mostly a takeout place. But theres some tables and chairs on the outside for eating. No frills, just food.

This is a small take-out only establishment. We ordered a brisket plate and a half chicken dinner. The chicken and potato salad were good but the brisket was just okay. I'm from Texas so probably a little picky.

A half of chicken with rice, beans, slaw and a roll all for just ten bucks. Plenty to feed two! Chicken was BBQ to perfection and not dried out. We will most likely eat there again while here on the island.

Good, but charge too much for a take away, and hours of operation are not consistent. When they sell out they just close. That could be anytime. I've went there many times (and it isn't easy to get anywhere on this island without a car). And they were already closed.

We saw this place on a YouTube video and had to stop by. We got there around 7:00 pm and all that was left was brisket - exactly what we wanted. The staff were super friendly and the brisket was top notch. This is not a set down restaurant but you cannot get better takeout. These guys are open until... More

This place is in the same shopping plaza as Duffy's Love Shack in Red Hook... The ribs and Chicken were superb. You get a main (chick, ribs or beef brisket) and 2 sides (potato, rice or cole slaw). If you want the Brisket... get there early because they run out quick.

They had a trailer set up on the water side of Veterans Way along the waterfront in Charlotte Amalie. We got into St. Thomas late and saw it on the way to the Bluebeards Castle. We had the chicken, rice and cole slaw. The price was really reasonable and the portions large. The two of us split the meal. The... More
