With so many new places and old favorites, you can find a wide range of next-level places for delicious BBQ in Pittsburgh.
Homewood Showcase BBQ,
A truly bare-bones spot with a penchant for fiery everything, from the flaming fonts on their website to the truly hot sauce that they slather on like gravy.
, Shadyside YinzBurgh BBQ
This little takeout joint is nestled in that auto-dealership-centric corridor between Oakland, Bloomfield and Shadyside.
North Side Wilson’s Bar-B-Q,
This place always looks closed (or abandoned), but it’s actually the granddaddy of Pittsburgh barbecue joints and the gold standard by which the rest must be judged. Nothing fancy, just chicken, ribs and sauce, with a bit of white bread to sop it up.

Putting barbecued meats into tacos is not only acceptable — it kind of makes one wonder why we do it any other way. All the meats at this Texas-style barbecue spot have a pedigree —
Homewood The Dream BBQ,
You’ll smell this place long before you see it. The aromas of cooking meats pervading the street outside, rising from an array of metal drum-style smokers. The ribs are the perfect balance of crispy and juicy, and quite substantial. Get the honey mustard and a serving of sugary yams on the side.
