Based upon the barbecue and fried chicken alone, we would have given The Pit a five-star rating. However, the hush puppies and biscuits were not up to the standard with which we are accustomed, and the Brunswick Stew was a big disappointment! The different styles of barbecue were delicious - tender, moist, and flavorful, and having the three different bbq sauces readily available made it even better. We liked each of the three different styles of sauce. We've been to more than 80 different barbecue restaurants, mostly in NC, and we would rate The Pit as one of the best in the Durham area.
Our server, Sarah, did an outstanding job, and she added to our overall dining experience. Be aware, this is not a mom-and-pop casual barbecue joint; it is a more upscale establishment with higher prices.
We will definitely return, but we just will not order Brunswick Stew.
