Just how many years have we been coming to The Barbecue Pit on Fletcher Parkway, El Cajon? Countless! The Browning Family keeps the restaurant smokin’ with oak wood and old time employees, like Doug who has been slicing meat for 38 years.

The Barbecue Pit is old school where you walk up and place your order and grab your plate full of hot bbq.  And if you are lucky enough to be greeted by Linda, she’ll call you honey as you place your order of baked beans, ham, cole slaw and ribs!

It’s nothing fancy but a bbq menu that has been serving various San Diego locations for 70 years.  Two locations now, one in east county and one in National City.  I like the meaty beef ribs and Friday ‘s beef stew sells out quickly.  I’m getting hungry just thinking about it.
