North Carolina is known for its legendary barbecue joints. The Pit continues this proud tradition by serving authentic whole-hog, pit-cooked barbecue in a beautifully restored 1930s meatpacking warehouse in downtown Raleigh.
More than just a restaurant, The Pit is an experience to be shared, enjoyed and remembered. We invite you to celebrate and share the experience with friends, family and co-workers at a private dining event or with our catering services.
The Pit, with its down-home culinary offerings, has become an internationally recognized destination for the state's signature cuisine. We proudly serve whole-hog barbecue made from Animal Welfare Approved, humanely raised North Carolina hogs. Our state's bountiful produce inspires our fresh selection of starters, sides and desserts.
Paired perfectly with authentic Southern hospitality, The Pit's ode to traditional cuisine presents fare far beyond ordinary barbecue offerings. From brisket, baby back ribs, barbecue turkey and fried chicken to a can't-miss barbecue tofu dish, The Pit provides homegrown decadence with a contemporary twist. Even our spirits at The Pit are handpicked to heighten the smoky, sometimes spicy flavors found throughout the menu. Whether it's beer, wine or fine bourbon and whiskey you seek, The Pit will have your perfect selection.
We look forward to hosting your event and can't wait for you to get a taste of The Pit!
