A few years ago, before BBQ joints were a dime a dozen in the Capital Region, Ontario Street in Cohoes was home to a small pink restaurant named the Pig Pit. Their current location on 26 Washington Avenue in Cohoes, nixed the pink paint, but their food is just as good as it always was. If you haven’t stopped in yet I’m not really sure what you’re waiting for. I don’t think they’re in the business of handing out engraved invitations.
I’m no stranger to the place, so take it from me: start off with the Spud Buds -- their potato skins. Those things are some of the best I’ve ever had. They fill up 4 potato halves with their pulled pork, BBQ sauce and cover it with cheese. One word comes to mind: outstanding.

Now that I let the cat out of the bag, let’s move on to their pulled pork. The Pig Pit has a lot of food on their menu – you could visit a dozen times without trying everything, but from my experience the best thing they have to offer is their pulled pork. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that their pulled pork is better than Dinosaur’s. Pictures are worth a thousand words so take a look at these and at least consider putting cole slaw on top of your sandwich next time you stop in.
