Dining Guide


Pizzitola’s is a legend wishing it could play the new game where juicy briskets trump years in service. Maybe they shouldn’t change a thing. Yes, they have some issues with consistency that are inherent in the equipment that helped make them famous, but maybe we should be happy to get a taste of classic Texas barbecue just like it was decades ago. And just like their pits, that’s something you don’t find every day.
