Not much parking and a little bit difficult to find, but great food. The atmosphere is typical 60s-70s deep south rural. Great place to eat and will go back again.

We had the ribs and they seemed more like steamed than barbequed. There was absolutely no char on them and rather tasteless. I make better at home in my crock pot. The sweet potato fries however were very good and crispy. The amount was small but enough for the two of us.

The landscaping could be a little tighter. No complaints, I was there for food. A good experience. I don't share my feelings about every meal :)

From Our Editors

Strands of hanging lights illuminate the yard outside Beach Pit BBQ's low-slung bungalow, where guests gather at picnic tables to enjoy Southern–style barbecue. Pit masters smoke the meat for 12 hours over indirect heat from hickory- and pecan-wood-burning ovens that give pulled pork, beef brisket, and whole chickens rich flavors. Diners get a complete rustic meal rounded out by classic Southern sides that range from jalapeño-cheddar cornbread to sweet-potato fries. The restaurant slathers their slow-cooked selections with a variety of housemade sauces, including a golden mustard sauce praised in Orange Coast magazine.

The vibe is laid-back as patrons settle into adirondack chairs around the outdoor fire pit or inside at gingham-covered tables the perfect size for arm-wrestling contests to decide who gets the last rib. Youngsters gambol about a play area enclosed by a white picket fence and sit at kid-size picnic tables to enjoy their meals. The eatery strives to give back to the community by sponsoring fundraisers and catering local events.
