Last week, I took my mother out for dinner and we stopped in for a quick bite, I am glad that we did. I ordered a Chicken and Ribs combo, before my mother could place her order the waiter informed that the food was more than enough for two. It sure was. Though the amount of food in the order was not disclosed on the menu, the meal came with half a two pound chicken, eight pork ribs, french fries and rice. It was a true delight, and only $15!
Unlike traditional American Barbecue that we are used to, the chicken and ribs were not greasy and doused in sauce. This Portuguese barbecue was seasoned in dry rubs. The meat fell off the bone, was tender, and a true delight. For those of you that like the greasy sauce, have no fear, the barbecue and buffalo sauce were available at the table.
The fries were fresh cut potato, not frozen, and fried in shortening not oil. They were not greasy and were seasoned just right. We were very surprised by the lack of grease and actually commented that it tasted almost as though the fries were baked.
The only draw back--no cole slaw. I would have loved a pulled pork sandwich but not without the slaw!
All in all, I give The Fire Pit two big thumbs up for a quick bite on the cheap, I will definitely go back! And they deliver too.
