The Pit is an upscale barbecue joint a short walk from the Raleigh convention center. The brick commercial exterior opens to a warm wood and glass accented interior. A big u-shaped bar stands left of the entrance. The main dining areas sit behind glass with illustrations of our friend, the noble pig.

I ordered the chopped pork plate. It consisted of whole hog bbq, two sides, a biscuit, and hush puppies for about $8.00. The pork was very good, and the portion was more than enough.

The Pit had twelve taps. Five were from NC, plus a couple from Victory and couple nice German biers. There were also some very nice bottles like Brooklyn 1, 2 and I believe Black Ops.

Service was good. Food came very swiftly, and my glass was never dry.

Good beer and good food. I like it.

The Pit has, in my opinion, the best BBQ in Raleigh. Unlike any other BBQ restaurant in Raleigh, they also serve grown up drinks. They have an excellent selection of beers for a restaurant. The food is great, too. For a visitor or a local who's into beer, this place is a must. Their current beer menu lists bottles from Founders, Bell's, Carolina Brewing, the DeProef/Bell's collaboration beer, plus many others. Their most mainstream bottled beer is Amstel Light, which to me is a great indicator of quality.
