The owners are just part of the reason this place is amazing. The ambience inside makes you feel like you're at your maw's place having some home cooked food. We got the pulled chicken bbq with mac and cheese and slaw and it did not disappoint. These people are great and so is their food. Authentic and home grown, can't... More

To say I was disappointed in the BBQ is an understatement. I ordered a sampler platter which enabled me to taste the ribs, pulled pork, and beef.

My search is over after discovering Smoke Pit! The BBQ here is the best I've ever had. And I've had them all. This beats KC, Memphis, Texas (yawn) and Carolina. Looking forward to many happy returns!

Best beans this side of the country. Fast and courteous. Price was just right. You'll feel like you're down south on someone's front porch! Loved it!

I lived in Memphis TN for 7 years, attended "The World BBQ Contest" every year. Had some fantastic BBQ there, so I know The Real Deal. This place would be in the top 3 or 4 of all world competitors, if they bothered to compete. No other place within 300 miles can touch them. Get the 1 and 1/2 pound... More
