The Pit in Raleigh, NC

I was in North Carolina to visit some friends and I had one request- bring me somewhere that screams Raleigh, NC. They had one solution, “The Pit”.

I couldn’t wait to get there knowing that it’s been featured on The Food Network, Travel Channel and the Today Show to name a few.  The décor was upscale and the food was awesome! I had the Triple Combo (I mean why would you want to try just one thing when you can have 3!).  I chose the fried chicken, brisket and their famous Chopped, which comes from a pig raised on a local NC farm then cooked to perfection as a whole-hog on their pit-cooked barbecue.  In true southern fashion, I chose the cheesy bacon grits and black-eyed peas as my side and I chose wisely!  If you are lucky enough to be in Raleigh, make the day even better by stopping here for some real southern BBQ!!
