Over the years we've awarded The Pit with Best Fried Catfish, and Best Barbecue, and that's because The Pit smokes everything for 2 and a half hours before it goes on a wood burning grill that uses only Blackjack Oak and Apple from North Carolina. The Gonzales's have kept the original menu and feel of The Pit intact, but have added a Latin flavor to the joint. "We've added a churrasco, rice and beans as a side, fried plantains (tostones), maduros, tamales and gator products that weren't here before. We get a lot of tourists from around the world.
Saturdays and Sundays we do live music and dancing and have pony rides for the kids. This is a real family joint. You can come here with your kids & still enjoy a night out."
