"Pit Beef" – smoked, thinly sliced beef on a Kaiser roll with raw onion as a garnish is a Baltimore thing – even Anthony Bourdain said so! But he didn't go to the right place. Many pit beef stands use gas to cook, resulting in a residual lighter fluid flavor. Others never know how to achieve different levels of doneness: no rare! Beefalo Bob's does pit beef, ham, turkey, as well as pulled pork and other forms of 'cue. Their hickory wood-smoked meats are succulent, the portions enormous. Pit beef (well-done) ends are enjoying a culinary moment all on their own; Beefalo Bob's has them as an appetizer. A foodie without tons of cash can really enjoy himself here. Many pit beef stands are outdoors only with limited hours, but Beefalo Bob's is a full-service sports bar.
- Best Restaurants: "Beefalo Bob's also does casual, as well as formal catering. They smoke on site! So, even that most upscale party can have little sliders of delectable meats to pass on pretty trays."
- Recommended as Best Restaurants Because: Baltimore's pit beef is world-famous, but it's not all created alike! Pasadena's Beefalo Bob's is worth driving in from the other counties to experience.
