Blue Pit BBQ

1601 Union Avenue, Baltimore , MD 21211
443-948-5590


In addition to its claim-to-fame bourbon collection, this pit palace is known for its Southern comfort foods. The menu is full of classic dishes with a hometown twist (think Zeke’s Coffee-rubbed brisket and smoked bratwurst made with Union Craft Brewing’s Anthem golden ale). Sides like loaded baked potato salad, four-cheese mac-and- cheese, and Chesapeake “pickleback” coleslaw, are also plentiful.
