WORST BARBECUE EVER! – I ordered delivery service from Da Pitt. After waiting 1.5 hours for my food, I called to see where my order was. The manager said the delivery driver was leaving now and would be there in 15-minutes. Another 45-minutes went by and I still had not received my food. I called back again to see what was going on with my order. The manager said the driver was on her way and he would have her call me. I waited another 30 minutes and my food still had not arrived so I called a third time and requested that my order be canceled; but the manager said it wasn't possible because the driver was near my house and he would make sure she called.
Well, she called and was only 5 blocks away on Gough. I gave her detailed directions on how to drive down Gough and make a left on Market Street. When she got to the intersection, she made her other left so she made a right going the opposite direction and had to try again. While only having to make a right on Octavia, another right on After 20 minutes she finally managed to at least make it across market still failing to make a left. I told her to park and I would walk to her.
So I walked down the block to the person who should have come to me since that is their job. She quoted me the order total. I paid and even tipped her since I did not have exact change.
So finally, 3+ hours after I ordered my food, I get my order only to find out that they did not include the desserts we ordered, they did not include two of the side dishes, and the dinner was buried in a disgusting barbecue sauce. Just the look of the food was almost enough to turn my stomach. Even if it had not been smothered, the food was cold and tasted horrible. I called back again to the restaurant to let them know what was missing and that the food was not eatable. I requested a refund and the manager said I would have to talk to the owner.
Well, I have waited for days now and have yet to see my money. All I can say is that this was the worst dining experience I have ever had! Also, the owner lied about refunding my order and basically stole my money since I did not eat the food and it sat in my apartment for two days before I tossed it down the trash shoot.
I talked to the owner and told him about my experience with my order and that the food was not eatable. The owner just made excuse for why the order was late, why the order was cover sauce when I requested it be on the side, and why their delivery driver sucked. He never once took ownership for their mistakes. I demanded a refund after talking with his and hearing his excuses. He finally agreed and said the driver would be back by to pickup the food and refund my money. Two days later, I still had not received a refund so the owner lied and stole my money since I the driver never returned. I will also be filing a complaint with the Better Business Bureau.
WOW THIS IS BAR B QUE AT ITS BEST – THIS IS WHAT YOU CALL QUE. DA' PITT USES REAL WOOD AND YOU CAN SMELL IT FROM BLOCKS AWAY THE FIRST SIGN THAT YOU HEADING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. THIS PLACE BEEN IN BUSINESS FOR OVER 45+ YRS LETTING YOU KNOW THEY KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING. THE RIBS (SHORT ENDS) AND BEEF BRISKET ARE THE BEST THING ON THE MENU FILLED WITH SMOKE FLAVOR AND TENDER AS CAN BE. THE PLACE IS MORE A TAKE OUT SINCE THEY HAVE FEW TABLES. I HAD THE SAMPLER PLATE WITH RIBS, BEEF AND LINKS AND MY WIFE HAD A HALF ORDER OF BIRD THAT WAS JUICY AND GOLDEN. THIS IS HOW QUE SHOULD BE. HOT SAUCE IS NOT TO HOT BUT YOU WILL ENJOY IT LIKE YOU ENJOY LIFE (LOL). DONT LET THE OUTER LOOK OF THE BUILDING FOOL YOU IT'S THE BEST.
THEY EVEN HAVE A NEW WEB SITE USE TO BE CALLED BROTHER IN LAWS. YOU MUST TRY THIS PLACE IF YOU R A QUE PERSON. THE NEW NAME IS DA-PITT.
Best Damn BBQ in the city!!! They really Load their plates with heeps of meat! – This historic and family owed BBQ hole in the wall used to be called Brother in Laws for over 50 years before selling it to the man who'd been manning the smoke grill for the past ten years. he and his wife LILLY, bought it about 1 year ago and nothing major has changed...he's still the cook. Though he did add Tri Tip and Baby Back Ribs to the menu...which are awesome! This place is great, and if you are too much of a wimp to get past the bars on the window and local thugs loitering in the parking lot....well all I can say is grow a pair or it's your loss. I walk to and from this BBQ Gem at all hours of the day at least once a month. Never had any issues, it is perfectly safe...well safe enough! That goes for what is out side the front door...what lies inside is friendly smiles and great (but slow) service.
The meat and sauce are great...the sides are not so great...but good enough not to ruin anything. They do not offer sandwiches which is a bummer as well. In a perfect world, there would be a BBQ joint that had Lilly's BBQ, Big Nates Sandwiches and Memphis Minnie's Side Dishes....add a Zeitgeist BBQ Burger and beer selection and you would have something very special.
Get over your phobia of 'scary black men' and go get the best BBQ in town...it is 2007, if you are scared, then there is something wrong with you....not them.
From...Just a small town boy, living in a lonely world who took the midnight train to Lilly's and left full, happy and in one piece.
Not To Die For – The pork ribs are above average, but the sauce is a bit too thin. Good value for the money.
Solid Every Time – I live down the street from this BBQ and every time we go it's superb. The pork ribs are the best bet on the menu and the beans are true BBQ beans. The sauce (recommend spicy) is a delicious summer's day homogenized into a sweet/spicy treat.
There is a reason it's always busy and they sometimes sell out. The people behind the counter have always been great to me when I appreciate them.
I highly recommend not going to this place. I was disappointed and I should have taken the negative reviews more seriously. I should have realize right away that it would not be quality food. When ordering a "coke" - the real thing, instead received Safeway's cola. The pork ribs were very tough and dry and did not come off the bone easily. The sauce okay but flat and left an after taste that lasted quite awhile.
A traditional barbecue joint draws customers from the Western Addition neighborhood and beyond. – In Short
It's a no-nonsense shack that specializes in barbecue does most of its business in takeout. The menu centers on old standards--ribs, chicken, links and brisket--that are cooked over open coals. The house specialty is "short ends," the meatier ends of ribs that usually come out chewy, crispy and smoky. Sides include baked beans, potato salad and greens. Sweet potato pie and peach cobbler desserts are homemade.
It will have to do..... – I was pretty disappointed in this place after reading all the positive reviews and hearing they had good barbecue here. On the positive side, the guy at the counter was pretty nice to me, unlike the experiences reported here by other negative reviewers. However, I would have gladly endured abuse if only the barbecue were good. We bought a whole slab of the pork ribs. They were a bit dry and overcooked. The sauces we got were unexceptional. But SF not being a barbecue town, I guess they'll have to do. I'm beginning to lose all confidence in the reviews posted on this website except for the negative ones.
Yum! – I thought Minnie's was good, until I found Bro's. The food was delicious, the sauce superb, the service friendly and did I mention the ribs were tender as can be, while the brisket melted in my mouth? This is my new favorite BBQ spot - there is none better in the city.
don't forget the cobbler – definately a take out spot, call ahead to make sure they have not run out of meats and closed early. The cooking is hit and miss and sometimes, the ribs are right on the mark and sometimes, overcooked and slightly dry.
