Let’s be clear about something right off the top: the Meathouse Pit & Grill does not have a signature item.

It does not offer any “items of the day” and it does not have specials. It does not have a bright, bold subtext on the sign that says, “the place for ...” That’s just not how owner Tony Esparza does business, because the Meathouse does not need a gimmick, and it sure as heck does not need subtlety.

The Meathouse cooks meat, and better than just about everyone.
