The food is mediocre at best. The pulled pork was overcooked and covered in sauce to try and hide the texture of the meat. The ribs were about the same, dry and oversauced. When asked the staff said that's how we serve it. Would not go back even if it was the only BBQ for 100 miles.

Pros: nice loud surroundings

Cons: food, service, parking

I saw this BBQ Restaurant on Huell Howser. I went here that night for dinner, and it was just as good as Huell said. I was not disappointed. The BBQ chicken and BBQ beef was so good I can't wait to go back. The atmosphere is friendly and very casual. Check it out and it you won't be disappointed.

The Beach Pit is a great place to hang out on the weekends and have some brews and some great food. I have lots of friends at the bar.

This was a great place for a few moms to take their preschool kids to and actually enjoy lunch! I had a barbeque salad and it was really good. The kids played in the kid's area which was right by our table and inside the picket fence. I would love to come back here again and bring my husband...He'll love the barbeque meats!

Great Barbeque! Affordable meals and large portions. I really enjoyed the uncrowded atmosphere and friendly service. The best thing is you don't have to wait an hour for a table.

The Beach Pit BBQ has easy access, great food, and the service was very efficient when I went there. They exceeded my expectations by a mile. They specialize in BBQ, they are a great deal, and the banana pudding is delicious. I am going back soon, and I also recommend them.

Great BBQ restaurant in Costa Mesa. Small place, very casual, little to no wait. Great place to bring kids. Prices are reasonable. The blueberry cornbread is excellent. The restaurant is a little hard to find - it is tucked off of Tustin near 17th street.

I was born and raised in Texas so I know good BBQ when I eat it. This place is great! It is one of two BBQ places I highly recommend in Orange County.

The Beach Pit is a great joint for quick, no fuss BBQ. The atmosphere is great for families and the service is good. Parking is available in the back if the front lot is full (people often times forget this).

Pros: good food and fun atmosphere for kids

Cons: portions on are the small side

.

The food is decent and they have an outdoor fire pit that's nice to sit around, but the portions are small for what you pay for.

But parking is dismal, and worst of all is the childrens play area - the decibal level is pretty rough on the ears and patience. Stick to takeout.

Pretty average BBQ. The BBQ ribs are pretty good and the portions sizes are large, almost too large. Really liked the service and the short wait. Not too expensive

Editorial from

Newport-Mesa's Beach Pit BBQ is a neighborhood favorite for smoky and savory Southern-style barbecue, along with healthy entree salads and good side dishes. All of the wood-smoked meats are tender and flavorful, including the pulled pork,…
