Pecos Pit is somewhat of a local legend in the Seattle area. This little shack has been open for decades, and people still line up each day to grab lunch smothered in their signature secret barbecue sauce recipe. Each meal comes in a generous portion size, and you’ll most likely have plenty of leftovers for a second barbecue feast. Beware: the hot sauce is HOT!

We Love Their: Spiked Brisket, Baked Beans

With five incredible homemade sauces and an out-of-this-world secret smoking process, RoRo will have your taste buds tingling. They even have a vegan entree, the Pulled Portobello Sandwich, so that everyone can enjoy! While it may look unassuming, you can’t miss out on RoRo BBQ & Grill.

Everyone in Seattle knows about The Barbecue Pit and it’s friendly owner Pookey. Even the kids from the local high school come here during their lunch breaks to fill up. Smoked over a kindling of local trees, you won’t find taste like this anywhere else, and you can smell these tasty meats all the way down the street as each one is smoked for about four hours.
