Powered by all-wood, offset barrel smokers, The Pit Room provides Montrose with a destination-quality barbecue joint. Even better, it serves that high-quality product for both lunch and dinner seven days a week. Three kinds of housemade 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. Best of all, tortillas made with brisket fat serve as the platform for tacos; scratch-made sides run the gamut from traditional barbecue staples to one of Houston's best quesos.
