This is one of my favorite restaurants in Riverdale. This is a very family friendly place with good take out service. Not a place for ambience, but excellent home cooking. Of course, this is a place for meat lovers, and the best plates involve ribs and barbecued chicken. Many of the dishes are prepared with Indian spices, but nothing is too overwhelming. Also recommended are the Mediterranean platters, burgers, fried catfish, and the pies. The chef / owner is quite friendly and is often willing to cook to order. Service is generally, but not always speedy. That of course depends on how busy the place is. While parking is tough in front of the BBQ Pit, it is easy to find spaces a little up the hill on the side streets.
