This place has good b-b-q food and is a hidden gem in vermilion. It might look like a shack on the outside but its good on the inside.

we have eaten at The Pit a few times. Ribs are very good. Not "over done" like some places. I especially like the sweet potato fries. The people are very nice and really try to accomodate.

We like the combination meal. We get a few different sauces. We LOVE the greens and usually order extra. There is always plenty of food and its always tasty. Worth it!

This was our second visit with a large group. The first time they ran out of ribs, which is bizarre for a rib place. This time, there were plenty of ribs, but they were just average. Some peoples were very dry and stringy and others...More

The restaurant is not fancy, and does not serve alcohol. That is not why you go there ! You go for the wide variety of BBQ, and the absolutely awesome sauces that accompany them ! The staff is so friendly, they are very accommodating. I...More

Great food, with very friendly staff. Very affordable. Can be cold in here in the winter. Seating is not that comfortable and you can't get alcohol here. The delicious food and affordable price keep me going back.
