Decided to try this place. We've been passed this place a number of times, and finally decided to stop. The service was friendly and efficient. We ordered the greens and beans to start out, which was excellent! A rare, healthier appetizer with a lot of flavor. It could be eaten as a main course for one. For dinner, we did... More

Very rude waitress, very bad attitude. Several times they gave me totally burned ribs when I ordered take out. I know they would not have put them in front of someone who was eating them there. The first couple of times I shrugged it off because STUFF happens but recently they gave me ribs that were charred and not even... More

We left a review for this establishment which was a great review. Sorry to leave such a poor review now. They have undergone new ownership, cooks, and waitress's and it is obvious. We went there last week for fish sandwiches and it was a whole new ballgame. Same prices but the portions were small, real small. We asked the waitress... More

I've been passing by Elliot's Barbeque for over three years, and on a Saturday afternoon, I did a U-turn and stopped for lunch. I was thrilled with the food. I ordered a pulled pork sandwich. I usually don't ever concede defeat to a sandwich, but I had to ask for a container to take about one-third home. It was great... More

Huge - I mean huge - portions. Got two meals out of my brisket. I did think it would come shaved but I got two giant pieces. The BBQ sauce is definitely different than most places, and not really my favorite, but it's not bad. Sometimes different is good. This place was talked-up by people in the immediate area but...

Decided to give these guys another chance after a bad experience a few years ago. More of the same this time too. Uninspiring atmosphere/interior, friendly but very inexperienced staff, but mostly the food was terrible and the presentation was just as bad. This place has been around for many years, and is in a great location - needs new ownership... More

This was once my favorite place to go. Upon the last few visits, it has been slowly going down hill. The wings have been cut in a way that eliminates the biggest piece of meat. Half the drumstick is missing on more than half of the wings. The ribs that were once incredible are now dry and chewy. I'm very... More

We are natives of the south hills > 20 years but never stopped to eat at Elliott's. We had family visit from the south who wanted to try Elliott's. The decor is very ma & pa in nature. More like sitting in your grandparent's basement than in a restaurant. However, the food could still rock. We ordered a slab of... More
