    Quite a few barbecue options. The server confirmed that everything is separate in the kitchen. I did not get sick.

    Everything is amazing. The BBQ, the brisket, the ribs, the soup, the sides.. They will even sub out ice cream if you order family style dinner. Bourbon ice cream is to die for!

    This was a huge let down. After taking care to order gluten free they didn't write my order with any sort of allergen indication and included some breaded product that was likely not GF. We ordered the Big Boy meat platter. My partner liked the pulled pork well enough but it was a bit spicy for my taste. I tried the chicken, brisket, and ribs but the seasoning wasn't anything to write home about.

    Perfect BBQ food. Meat is tender and flavorful. Really like the brisket and baby back ribs. Most sides are gf; just ask.

    My plate came out with hush puppies and a biscuit on the meat.

    I've eaten at The Pit a few times without a problem but this time someone got careless in the kitchen. Halfway through my side of gf Brussels, I found a few green beans from the (not gf) green bean casserole. Later, I felt the effects of being glutened. If I go back, I will just get the meat and a salad. The sides are just too risky in my opinion.

    Excellent! Servers were knowledgeable and helpful. Had a great meal and was at-ease. I only suggest that you cover your own utensils to avoid crumbs from the bread served to the table. PS -make sure you try their ice cream!

    Before GF, one of my favorites. Now with GF, still a good choice, with a limited but clear and worthwhile menu.
