Allie here ,, and oh what a time January of 2011 my birthday ,,,, and well i am still kicking. Potent Delicious cocktails were flowing with EXCELLENT smiley service! Not to mention the FISH and chips (they have HALIBUT.. the real stuff) yumm don't forget BBQ and CHEAP CHEAP yummy I drank to much and need BREAKFAST breakfast :) just like the "greasy spoons" we all secretly LOVE
This location just west of Raleigh Hills is supremely located for the Portland and Beaverton metro areas. They have Pool tables... Trivia .. poker tournaments and BEER .. happy hour specials and TV's galore.. (they even show NASCAR.. a lot) .. but they show everything else too there are TV's everywhere! plus.. yes KARAOKE!!!! good bad and ugly .. you know you love it and so does table #5 :0 ... you know the "special kids".
The atmosphere is friendly and humble.. GREAT service GREAT servers shout out to Laurel..Jaime.. Shaundra (sorry for wrong spelling?) and Roxanne and her RedLight after midnight shhhhh... you have to see for yourself!! Their entire staff is QUICK and KNOWLEDGEABLE .. no need for whipping out the bartender manual here .. they will help you with drinks and food choices... because you might need help with their extensive menu! and they are FAST!!! no downtown pdx lines or cover charges! COME ON IN!
Best bar in Beaverton. I love this place, always have.. always will. Great drink specials on Wednesday nights, great food, and an awesome atmosphere. Michelle, Nate, and the rest of the Pit Stop crew are super cool people and will make an effort to get to know you and make you feel welcome. I've thrown my last 2 birthday parties there and both of them were a blast. I always recommend the Pit Stop to my friends, and you should definitely check it out next time you go looking for some BBQ or a fun bar to hang out at. Five stars!!
BBQ, THEMED PARTIES, KARAOKE, and FUN LOCALS!.
If there was just one thing I could change about this place, it would be it's location. It's just far enough out of Portland proper that I can't get my non-Pit Stop friends to come hang out.... Other than that? PERFECT!
Great food, great people, fun atmosphere, and all the sports you want. They cover just about every major sports event. The staff makes you feel like an old friend. The drinks are fairly prices and the Karaoke rocks my mutha truck'n socks! I used to live across the street from this place and even though I had choices galore of where to spend my hard earned greenbacks,
I choose to spend them in the place where everybody knows your name, and they're always glad you came, Don't you want to be where you can see our troubles are all the same? You WANT to be where everybody knows your name.....
Trust me on this. If you're feeling funky, talk to Michelle, the Pit Stop party planner, she'll throw you a psychedelic funk'd out 70's party. Did you miss Prom because you were at that sweet KISS concert or home scrapbooking with gam-gam, just talk to Michelle, She'll throw you a Prom Night Party. Looking for an excuse to show off that mustache you had tattooed on the inside of your pointer finger because you went through a hipster phase and made some bad decisions? Well HELL! Talk to Michelle, she'll throw you a Mustache party!
My point is this people.... If your throat is parched, lips chapped, and voice is shot? Pass on that quickie mart, sail by freddy's, skip over those fast food joints.....
When you need a drink that's served with a smile and a wink, no place will treat you finer. When you want a bite that is down-right out of sight! You should have but one desire. Come watch your team kick butt on the big screen, while the karaoke sets the house on FIRE! Do like I do when I want to party with wreckless abandon, I stop in at the Pit Stop Bar and Grill on Canyon.

Best BBQ around!.
Found this place almost by accident - was getting my tires rotated at Les Schwab across the street. Had a long wait, so decided to get some lunch and relax instead of waiting in the rubber smelling showroom.
What a surprise! The bartender, Nancy, was friendly and helpful. She recommended the BBQ special, a pulled pork sandwich. It was divine! Lots of meat, tender and moist. The BBQ sauces were amazing - the hot one kicked my butt but was so good!
I hear they do karaoke 4 nights a week - I'll be back to check that out. This is my new secret spot.
OK for what it is.
Had lunch in the bar. The bartender worked hard on being friendly and had a nice smile. Her drinks were great, but her menu suggestion sounded forced for a classic Portland bar. The bar its self was very small and cosy with an amazing amount of tvs for such a small space. Perfectly dark and with about a quarter of the space taken up with video poker. The rest was about 12 bar seats. I ordered the "famous" Brisket sandwich with garlic fries. I liked the fries, but was very put off by the brisket. The sandwich was built like a burger (chopped green leaf, onion and tomato slice), which I felt was strange, but whatever. The brisket tasted way too much like boiled beef, almost wet cardboard. No brine, no rub, almost no smoke. Not BBQ.
They offered two types of house BBQ sauce. A firey and normal. Both tasted like ketchup with some basic flavors add, the firey not hot enough.
If I go back, maybe I'll try one of their "Portland Best" burgers.
AWFUL, AWFUL, AWFUL. I am shocked that ANY would rate their food good. It is atrocious! I ordered the chicken and it looked like a poor little bird laying on it's side with it's head cut off. It was enough to make me a vegetarian. I'm not adverse to eating meat but I don't like it to look so much like it would have looked alive. So, trying to get past the look, the meat was pink and it had an overwhelming (as in too much) smokey taste to it. The poppers were adequate at best and the potato salad was a mustard potato salad, which may appeal to some was not what I was expected nor was it enjoyable. After 3 bites of the chicken I knew I could not continue with it. I took the rest home to my dog, who is less picky about his quality of food. Pretty expensive dog food though, unfortunately.
Mmmm, yummy above average bar food!. My boyfriend I recently ate at the Pit Stop and were both impressed with the food and atmosphere. I had the pulled pork and pineapple pizza which was very good (would have been slightlly better had the pulled pork been basted in bbque sauce) and my boyfriend had a bacon swiss burger with garlic fries which were out of this world! The service was also pretty good for a bar..(it wasn't very busy). Next time we go, I will totally try some of their bbque as the smoker smelled yummy as we were leaving. Next time we will also come a little earlier as they have happy hour 3-6 M-Sun!
Food is great here!. Well, I'm over 30 and I love this place. The food is incredible for the price, and the drinks.....well, let's just say I don't get up early the next morning! The karaoke is the best on this side of town, and the crowd is pleasant and fun to sing with/to. I like that they turn the game on I'm looking for if I ask.
NO LONGER A CHEERFUL ESTABLISHMENT. This business is no longer a Cheerful Establishment. Otherwise a great location, really like the BBQ and enjoy the new patio outside.
