We love the Pit in downtown Raleigh—and we're really diggin' the one in Durham! Located in the bubbly Geer & Rigsbee area, the Pit offers prime bbq in the heart of downtown Durham's dining & drinking scene. You'll find all the great deliciousness of the original plus a gorgeous rooftop patio. Grab a pint, bring your pup, and don't forget the fried okra. North Carolina is known for its legendary BBQ restaurants. The Pit proudly continues that tradition by serving authentic whole-hog, pit-cooked BBQ with a friendly, Southern atmosphere. The Pit goes beyond traditional BBQ offerings on their menu with some contemporary twists on old Southern favorites. You'll find Texas-style brisket, baby back ribs, BBQ turkey, fried chicken, and BBQ tofu. The sides are some of the best in town—enjoy mac 'n cheese, green bean casserole and collard greens. There's no wonder The Pit has been featured on the Travel Channel, Food Network and more; it's a classic!
