The open face sandwich is amazing. You can choose another meat if beef isn’t your thing. The double cooked fries are perfect. Last but not least, the gravy that is ladled over the top of everything is to die for..... I’m glad they only have this special on Tuesday’s & Friday’s, or else I’d be there everyday!

Don't let the seating area scare you away.  Pit beef was medium rare and juicy. Sandwich was packed with meat and the roll was soft and fresh.  

Tried all of the BBQ sauces and all were great.  Loved the spicy one. French fries were "skin on" and served blazing hot as they should be.

One of the best pit beef sandwiches

The sandwiches and pulled pork are excellent at West River Pit BBQ.  They also make good size chocolate chip cookies during the week for dessert. They catered one of our big birthday parties and everyone loved the roast beef and pulled pork.  You must try it on Muddy Creek Road next to the Wawa.
