It’s my first time in Houston and I’m just so glad to get the chance to try different food that this city has to offer. Just this month, I visited The Pit Room for some oh-so-yummy BBQs and snacks!
Just a warning, if you’re currently on a diet we don’t recommend this place as it was really hard to resist the temptation of having even just one bite! The tender and juicy meat are inviting me to try them. Then I just found myself giving in to the temptation, haha! Don’t blame me though, the smell is already addicting, I bet you’d feel the same way I did when I was there!
So, to give you more idea about The Pit Room, just read more below so the next time you’re in Houston, you know where to go when your tummy suddenly demands some good food!

About The Pit Room
The Pit Room is a BBQ restaurant that also serves tacos, desserts, beer & wine located in Montrose Houston. The two brains behind this successful business are Michael Sambrooks and Bramwell Tripp.
Michael has prior experience working at different popular Houston restaurants which proves his love for cooking and serving people with delicious cuisines. In these experiences, he first met Bramwell “Bram” while they were both working at Liberty Kitchen & Oysterette in River Oaks.
While Michael was still in the process of developing the idea for The Pit Room, he again met Bram at Revival Market and he soon joined The Pit Room and became the executive chef/pitmaster.
The beginnings of The Pit Room might come unusual but this leads to what we have now. It is not new to us that some new restaurants endure growing pains as they start. As for Michael and Bramwell, they experienced delays – many delays, before they could even start. But they used this opportunity to refine and improve their recipe and menu.
After spending a long time in the kitchen working on their recipe, they were finally able to create the masterpiece that would lead The Pit Room to its success. So when they were finally offered occupancy, they already have their to-level products ready for the business.
What To Order?
You can enjoy a 1 pound of brisket at $24. It might be a bit pricey but you know you’re in for a good meal when you’re in The Pit Room. Its peppery flavor and a good amount of smoke are already enough to make you drool.
Their pork ribs are also top-tier! You know that fall-off-the-bone moment which I think, most of us like to see, will make you more excited to dig in. The tenderness and juiciness of the meat will make you go back to The Pit Room.
Don’t you ever forget to also try their made in-house sausages! It is one of the crowd’s favorite! It is kinda hard to find a restaurant in Houston that offers sausages that are made freshly on the spot daily. The Czech-style beef sausage has this garlicky taste and is smudged with mustard seed and pepper. Yum!
If you still have space in your tummy, try their sides as well. It includes mac n cheese, mustard potato salad, coleslaw, charro beans, and elote-style yellow corn topped with cotija and cilantro. After that, finish your meal with some good desserts such as the seasonal pie and ice cream sandwich!
