I only discovered this place because it was a 90-second walk from the Days Inn I was staying at. Otherwise, I could have driven on Banksville Road a thousand times and never noticed it. It is hidden on a small road that runs behind two hotels and is essentially invisible from the main road. Although its location is discreet, the... More

One of the few places in the Pittsburgh area, that add more flavor to the meat, than just leaving it to the sauce! Which is two and few, in this area for some reason. Where some places sell bland meat, drowning and overpowered in barbeque sauce, this place does not. The meat is slowly cooked, in a smoker fueled by... More

We came across this place totally by chance, as it was behind our hotel we were staying at. We thought they had gone out of business, as it was dark for a few days. On Wednesday, we say they were open and decided to try it. Turns out they aren't open on Mondays and Tuesdays. We got the pulled pork... More

I'm a barbeque addict. Regrettably, good barbeque places in Pittsburgh are not common. After a couple of weeks checking reviews to look for a decent place, found this place. It fully met my expectations. We only tried the spare ribs and beef brisket. The ribs are good, but the brisket was awesome. Good riddance we bought the full pound. Already... More

Hubby and i had been wanting to try this place for ourselves after experiencing the food at an outdoor wedding we had attended. It is not far from downtown but is a little hard to find as it is tucked behind a days inn and comfort inn (if coming out of the fort pitt tunnels, turn right on banksville when... More

Great barbecued meats with excellent varieties chicken, ribs, pulled pork, and brisket. Sides were pretty good. Only drawback is you can only sit down to eat here outside. So plan on taking it to go. I recommend the Pittsburgh Barbecue Company!!

My wife and I stopped by for carry out on a hot Sunday evening after not wanting to cook. As we pulled up we could smell the smoke and we're excited to give this place a try. Be sure to check the hours on their website as they are closed Monday's and Tuesday's. The place is small and is designed... More

If this review had been posted before May 1st, 2016, I would have given Pittsburgh BBQ a solid and resounding 5 stars. Unfortunately, after today, I would give it 1 star (I would actually give it 0 stars, but that's not a choice, so the average is a generous 3 stars. Today, around 3 pm, I ordered a half rack...

We were expecting family from out of town last weekend and wanted to impress them with the fabulous ribs from Pittsburgh Barbecue Company. My husband called on Wednesday to see if we should place an order in advance of our Saturday pick-up. We were assured that pre-ordering was not necessary, there would be ribs available at whatever time we needed.... More

We used Pittsburgh BBQ to cater my Grandma's 90th Birthday party. It was a great choice. We chose the two meats package and it was plenty of food (we had lots of leftovers!). The meats are all smoked. We chose the pulled meats, which were all served with BBQ sauce on the side in big squirt bottles. This was a... More
