12 The Pit Authentic Barbecue in Durham Reviews
Married on 07/21/2018
I would give The Pit 10 stars if I could. We had our son's day-after-wedding brunch for around 100 family and out of town guests at The Pit. Long story short---the food was delicious and the service ... Read more exceptional! Liz, the catering manager was amazingly helpful in recommending menu choices. Many of our guests had never tried N. Carolina BBQ and Liz's suggestions were spot-on. Our guests raved about the food- pulled pork, beef brisket, baked beans, grilled vegetables, hush puppies and banana pudding. Vegetarians were offered BBQ soy nuggets which got a big thumbs up. The servers were so attentive, friendly and helpful. The downstairs room has a nice atmosphere and comfortably accommodated 100 guests. There was no fee to reserve the room aside from a minimum food/beverage tab which was quite reasonable. I searched quite a bit for a private dining room for a large party that wouldn't break the bank, and this was it. Complimentary valet parking is available- a big advantage when booking an event in downtown Durham. All in all, wonderful food, awesome service and a great value. So glad we booked The Pit!

Liz and her event staff were absolutely amazing! They helped us put together an amazing menu, and really worked with us to get the most out of the space at the venue. While it didn't end up raining ... Read more (thank goodness), we also put a rain plan in place so it wouldn't really have mattered much if it had. Before and during the wedding and reception, everything about The Pit was not only wonderful, but designed to make our lives as easy and stress-free as possible. Highest recommendation!

I'm so happy we had our rehearsal dinner at the pit. The coordination was super easy, the prices I found to be really reasonable and they were willing to work with us to figure out the bar situation ( ... Read more we ended up basically having a little bar table with beer and wine which worked perfectly - some people went and got something harder from the bar and I don't think it was a big deal. We were in the downstairs space.
