The Pit Room provides Montrose with a destination-quality barbecue joint, using some of the only all wood-fired, offset barrel smokers in the Houston-area. Even better, it serves that high-quality product for both lunch and dinner seven days a week. Three kinds of house-made sausage drip with delicious meat juice, the USDA Prime brisket has a good bark and a pleasant amount of smoke, and the pork ribs have just the right amount of chew. The Pit Room also serves an extensive selection of housemade pickles, tortillas made with smoked brisket fat, and sides that blend Tex-Mex and barbecue traditions.
