Ate our first meal at Pitted Olive [5818 Hampton, 832-6548] this past Saturday and were very pleased with food and service. Highly recommended and a nice addition to Hampton. Here's the run-down.

Two of us had chicken and goat cheese sandwiches. Excellent. Served on nice bun baked on site, plenty of moist, tender chicken and healthy portion of goat cheese. Served with greens and sliced tomatoes (Romas I believe) plus a side. I had red patato salad. Spouse had Thai noodles. Both were substantial portions and very good.

One person had BBQ. Passable but not great. Pulled pork came on bun with cole slaw and sweet BBQ sauce. Didn't taste myself and the diner is a Native Texan who thinks anything outside dry rubbed beef from Austin's County Line is beneath his consideration. He did seem to relish this, however and not a smidge was left on the plate.

Final person in our party had spinich lasagna. Exellent. Nice portion with red sauce as garnish around nice fluffy lasagna packed with cheese and spinich. Very nice change from usual heavy handed saucing. And appetizing presentation.

Two of us had brownies for dessert. Good but a bit on the dry side. Other couple got lemon tart. This produced by Sugery we were told. This was defintely a WOW dessert.

Owners were very friendly and attentive. Business we were told has been very good. A dozen people or so in this very small space even well after the lunch crowd on Saturday.

Certainly recommend giving this place a try. We will be back.
