This is a casual, neighborhood eatery. Excellent BBQ selection and beers, wine too. Nice outdoor seating and small indoors available. I have had the BBQ chicken salad and pulled pork tacos on two separate occasions. Lots of meat, very filling. You won't be disappointed.

The pulled pork and brisket were tender and yummy. Two types of BBQ sauce are available, my fave was the spicy. Outside patio seating, and friendly staff made for a great experience.

We live in the desert so when we're near the ocean it is such a treat. The Beach Pit BBQ is one of our spots to grab some good Q in a laid back atmosphere. The remodel looks really nice. I ordered the 3 Sliders...More
