"What's new?" I asked the blonde at The Pit's service counter. "Nothing," she replied. "Tommy Little has owned this place for 35 years, and his whole idea is never to change anything." Thank the Lord for small things. The food here is as reliable as guessing that the counter lady's hair color began life in a peroxide bottle. Good meat, slowly smoked over blackjack oak logs. Key lime pies made from scratch. Fresh frogs' legs and onion rings. Plenty of good customers. Laurence Fishburne is crazy about the chicken. Dennis Rodman loves the ribs. Steven Tyler brought the Aerosmith crew to dine. Jim Carrey and Alex Penelas have been known to pile their plates high. Such stars could make you think you're on South Beach instead of in a tiki hut at the edge of the Everglades. But after being sated by the best barbecue, you'll be glad you're swamps away from that sandbar.

If your a truee BBQ fan, I wouldnt go here, not too much authentic BBQ food, seems more towards salsa music and cuban food.

Didnt like this place, seemed to be a BBQ restaurant with an identity crisis, playing Salsa music and a menu where the majority of food wasnt BBQ!

We drove to the Pit on November 17 and found the portable grill on the parking lot and the cooks cooking ribs, chicken and corn on the cob. The Pit is gettting a kitchen face lift! new equipment and they are definately cleaning up. The owners apologized for not having a complete menu, and they told us they will be up and running on December 6th with the full menu and some new items like sirloin steak, churrascos and bake potatoes and that sounded good to us. Their effort for having at least RIBS and CHICKEN for us to eat was well appreciated otherwise we would had to drive back to Key Largo with an empty stomack or stop in Shorty's for their ribs and there is a big difference in ribs, Shorty's ribs have no taste of BBQ unless your put BBQ sauce the Pit ribs do not need for you to put BBQ sauce at all, they taste smokey and with theold traditional BBQ taste that comes from their wood burning BBQ pit. My recommendation to all those that enjoy good "ALL AMERICAN BBQ" to drive to the PIT, in my book THE PIT RIBS and CHICKEN are the best in Florida! and now that the place is getting cleaned up, new restrooms and beef added to the menu, this place is the place to eat and experience the "GOOD OLD DAYS" dining out doors!!!
