The comfortable dining room of faux-wood paneling, vinyl chairs and Formica tabletops is plastered with gimme caps and fishing trophies at this Heights barbecue joint. Interspersed throughout are photos of loyal customers. But the distinct smell of smoke gives away Pizzitola's true calling: slow-cooked barbecue, which is still produced in the original pit. Famous for its fork-tender brisket, Pizzitola's also serves up admirable smoked chickens and dry-rubbed ribs. Don't miss the coconut cake for dessert.
