This is exactly as described in the name. Don't expect fine dining, but for delicious breakfasts, and homely dinners, can't be beaten!

Passed this wee place hundreds of times and always thought it was a fast food greasy spoon type place.....boy was I surprised. Two grandsons insisted on going after playing football at Bangor F.C.....They have a separate takeaway section but the main building inside is quite large, open and airy and very clean. tables or booths and larger tables as well....

It does exactly what it says on the tin. Large portion sizes of "home cooked" style food. Never a problem getting a seat and staff are always smiling.

We have being going to Pit Stop for many years and can say it only gets better. Great food at great prices. Good choice of food and not bad prices. It is not up market but a place you can just up and go to.The fry's are great value but I can't finish one

Visit the pit stop regularly for breakfast. I have never had any complaints about the food. It is always to a high standard and the staff and owners are very friendly and helpful. It's definitely worth a visit. The open fire is a big plus. I love it .

It seems almost blasphemous to give the Pit Stop any less than five stars, but I think in this case it warrants it. The Ulster Fry is sensational and is by far the best in the area. However it did take a long time to be ready, especially when it wasn’t as busy as it had been on previous trips.... More

The smell of grease hits you as soon as you enter and if I had not been as hungry I would have gone no further. Food looked good in the displays as I order pie , potatoes and a little veg . Took my seat to await it being served. Food had bee microwaved until it was ready to run... More
