Pearls from the Press

Sure, The Pit is a must-see—but our notoriety extends far beyond the Triangle, and with good reason. Chalk it up to our secret recipes, our passion, our service, our style—whatever it is, it just keeps getting us noticed.

Our barbecue, ribs, and Southern sides have helped us get plenty of attention from the media. We won a rib challenge on Food Network’s Throwdown with Bobby Flay. The Pit has been on The Travel Channel’s Man v Food, and was included in a barbecue cook-off on NBC’s The Today Show. The restaurant also has been included in cooking segments on ABC’s Good Morning, America, on CBS’s The Morning Show, and has been featured in Bon Appetit, Southern Living, Men’s Health, GQ, Imbibe, Delta Sky, and Food Network magazines.
