Best Pit Beef Joints along Pulaski Highway

All this talk about Pit Beef on the other thread made me realize I'm driving through Baltimore tomorrow around lunchtime. Any one care to recommend a good place? Been a couple years since I was there and the places seem to come and go.

The place I stopped at last time was beside a Country Western night club.

  1. The best is Chaps Pit Beef, 5801 Pulaski Highway, right next to the Gentlemans Club (!). If you're heading (north)east, it's right past Erdman Avenue and the junction with I-895.

    1. I went looking a few weeks ago for the ones previously mentioned on this board, and Chaps seemed to be the only one left.

      1. Had Chaps about a month ago, it couldn't have been blander, I won't go back!

          Two more that are outside the Beltway: One on the south side right past the Double T Diner (after the light at Ebenezer Road), another a few miles further eastward, on the north side in the same parking lot as Midway Liquors (huge purple sign). Sorry but I don't have names for either of these pit stops!

            Thanks for the tip! We went to the place beside Midway Liquors (it's called Bulls Eye charcoal pit-beef I believe) and it was great. Little roadside family operated place. Melt-in-your-mouth pit beef, and when they saw we were traveling with our dogs (2 greyhounds) the kids brought out some water and beef scraps and played with the dogs while we ate at the steel tables as the trucks roared by.

            Since Big Al's, my favorite, closed both locations, I went to Chap's. I was delighted with it! But, sad that there are few choices along Pulaski Hwy these days.
