Having grown up in the south, I was somewhat worried about the possibility of food in sothern California that didin't consist of nuts, berries and tofu. Much to my delight, the BBQ served at the Oak Pit in Oak View is tasty, sloppy, meaty and full of heart-stopping goodness. The interior, while clean, gives the appearance of a carefully-adjusted rustic barn. There are peanuts to crack and eat while you wait for your slabs of beef. For lunch, they serve great sandwiches. Such is their reputation for no-frills beef eating, that my friends and I have simply started referring to the establishment as "Meat on a Bun." It may be possible to eat a healthy meal there if you get a salad and unsweetened tea, but I wouldn't recomend it. All their food is good, but you really must get the potatoe salad with chuncks of bacon, the slabs of beef, top it off with fresh peach cobbler and vanilla ice cream. Yum.

PROS: Dripping-good Texas BBQ
CONS: Will clog your heart before you can say "yippie-yi-yo-ky-yay"
