barbecue – Don't waste your time here. Been here many times after the first time and the food just goes down after the first time. Don't know why they can't keep up the quality of food.
best ribs/desserts – Bottom line: the ribs are the best around, and the homemade desserts are unreal. Fun place to go for lunch.
Sexy! – If you go on a Monday or Wednesday, you'll see Michael---- he's very good looking!
And he's sweet too!
The Sauce!!!! – I love BBQ. Drove by this place many times but never bothered to go in until today. As soon as you go in you are greeted by the friendly owner. The atomosphere is low key, with hundreds of pictures on the wall and a TV at the end of restaurant. I ordered beef, link, and ribs. The beef was ok. Slightly dry but the rub was tasty. The link had a good peppery flavor. The ribs were also a bit dry but edible. The kicker was the BBQ sauce. It was horrible. Strongly flavored tomato sauce with tabasco. Surely it would make a good pizza sauce. What was nice was the potato salad. Very fresh. Definetly homemade. Overall its alright.
Wonderful BBQ – I am a really picky meat eater and I loved thier BBQ
Best BBQ in town – I don't know how the other BBQ restaurants were rated above Pizzitola's. I've eaten at them all and they do not compare. Lean quality meat with numerous sides to choose from. The sampler plate was awesome. If that wasn't enough, the desserts (banana pudding, Coconut/Pineapple cake) are the best. Home made at its best.
