    While not fancy, this might be the best restaurant in Pittsburgh. The tacos here would hold their own and often best the top tacos in Austin.

    Chicken Apple taco is the best! Mac and brisket taco aren't bad either. They charge $1 for hot sauce tho (which the Mac needs).

    Hands-down the best barbecue in the city. It's BYOB and owned by an engaged couple who are a lot of fun. On Thursdays they do smoked chicken wings. Read more

    We tryed to eat dinner there. But got a strange look when asked how long the wait was. Then after waiting for 45 minutes out side they were supposed to text or call us and never did. I was pissed.

    BYOB. Don't have an expectation of finding a seat, you may have to stand at the bar. Not that any of this detracts from just how amazing the food is.
