Came here a month or so ago. Everyone was happy with their food (chicken BBQ, pork BBQ and 2 tofu BBQ). Service was attentive and bathrooms were acceptable. We are planning on coming back. The waitress was also helpful in steering away from food that could make me sick. They fixed grilled vegetables for me to ensure nothing was cross contaminated and I did not get sick after eating there. Portions were large enough to make 2 meals out of the plates for most of us at the table.

Great restaurant. Great food and wonderful and attentive service. Mac n cheese was delicious. Will recommend for anyone coming to Raleigh.

Groose Briscuits – I ordered the brisuits and it was so disgusting. It was blobs of fat cut into strips. when waiter asked how it was, I explained how all of it was nothing but fat and there was no meat in it. He smerked and said that's how its is supposed to be. My friend had the meatloaf and that was bad too, it was dry and rubbery.

Awful food and very inconvient location. We are NEVER going back!

Not as good as it used to be. – Been to the Pit many times in the past, but it is losing it's luster - other and better choices out there. There have been a lot of changes in management lately, and the experience was different this time.

Bathrooms were NASTY.

Multiple errors with our food order. Wrong salad, wrong side orders, etc. When food did come out the servers were not attentive enough to know who ordered what and put it down in front of the wrong patron. Finally, my dessert (banana creme pie) was hot on one side and cold on the other.

Hopefully the new management can get the Pit back up to its old standard.

good stuff – I've been here, it's a really cool spot with a full bar. The pulled pork barbeque is amazing, not overwhelmingly drenched in vinegar, and the mac n cheese is sensational! It's a bit pricey, but I can see why the spot is so popular, great atmosphere.

Food Ok ! Services Not>>> – I am sorry to say that I was very disappointed. The chopped pork was great as well as the brisket. But the sides were very plan, no flavor at all. We heard the place would be very busy and making reservations would be the smart thing to do, so we made them and arrived 20mins early and still had to wait because of a mix up....... services was not good at all, we waited and waited and people who arrived after us were eating before we even got our food. Nope I will not go again.....

best carolina cooking around – potato salad was the best I have ever had and have lived around raleigh my whole life. cole slaw was very crunchy and fresh, biscuits were out of this world. don't dare go to smithfield's. this place is well worth the price.

A Raleigh Classic – The only complaint is that it's very crowded and busy. There is a good reason - it's some of the very best BBQ you can find anywhere.

There is a unique combination here of product quality and cooking technique. Ed Mitchel is an icon.

If you are in or near Raleigh, you need to put this on your list.
