The Pit is more than just a great place to enjoy mouthwatering BBQ, for us it’s about family, tradition, and great live music.
The Pit originally started 14 years ago when we quit our corporate jobs to spend more time with our families. Soon after we opened our first store, our little secret was out and The Pit became a Memphis staple. It’s a lot of hard work but we love what we do!
Delicious BBQ isn’t the only thing we have to offer! Here at The Pit, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. Whether you’re looking for live blues music or just looking to have an amazing time on any given day, you’re sure to find something that speaks to your soul.
The Pit has a variety of events year round. The Pit lunch is half price from 11am-1pm Monday through Friday. Check out our Live & Local section for a complete list of events!
