My husband and I were in the mood for some genuine BBQ. The Pig Pit delivered! My husband had a full rack of ribs with french fries. They were meaty and flavorful. I opted for a pulled pork sandwich with coleslaw...it was a pulled pork hoagie! The Pig Pit cooks know how to BBQ, excellent meals at reasonable prices.

Heard good things about the Pig Pit when I moved to the area. Glad I gave it a try and have been passing the word at the Fitness Center.

Heading up to Vermont, we had to make a pit stop at the Pig Pit Barbecue. The venue is very small and just what you would expect for a barbecue. Indoor and outdoor seating available. A nor'easter blowing through so the restaurant was empty except for us. Staff super friendly. Pulled pork sandwich - meat was mouthwatering, but roll wasn't... More

If your looking for authentic BBQ this is the place. We've been here several times over the last few months. The ribs are excellent as well as the chicken. The sides are very tasty as well. The restaurant is small and cozy with bench seating. Nothing but the basics here. They offer take out for those who may want to... More

Wife and I find the chicken and the ribs to be dry and tasteless. Tried both twice and Pig Pit is now off our list.

For BBQ people, nothing is nearer and dearer to our hearts than a good smoke ring on a slice of brisket, and melt-in-your-mouth pulled pork... Cohoes' Pig Pit offers both (and more) in abundance! Smoked locally in small batches, arrive fairly early, or you may face the dreaded "Out of Pulled Pork" sign... The portions are more than generous, and... More

Every time I get the barbaque by chicken it is too dry. Trident the ribs they are ok. The hamburger is great.
