Houston Press' Description
The comfortable dining room of faux-wood paneling, vinyl chairs and Formica tabletops is plastered with gimme caps and fishing trophies at this Heights barbecue joint. Interspersed throughout are photos of loyal customers. But the distinct smell of smoke gives away Pizzitola's true calling: slow-cooked barbecue, which is still produced in the original pit. Famous for its fork-tender brisket, Pizzitola's also serves up admirable smoked chickens and dry-rubbed ribs. Don't miss the coconut cake for dessert.
Tips from foursquare
Some of Houston’s most eligible bachelors convene here, starting at about 11:30 a.m.
Don't leave without trying the ribs and the banana pudding. The pudding is home made by the owner's mother every night and will not disappoint.
The only open pit left in Houston. The ribs stand on their own and don't need sauce. This place is the real deal.
This place was featured on the food network. Gotta check it out.
