The Pit BBQ is the only Restaurant in Miami that cooks with plain wood. Its been a Landmark for 50 years. You are going to experience the OLD FLORIDA charm and THE BBQ RIBS in South Florida not to mention GATOR BITES, GATOR RIBS< GATOR BURGERS and GATOR SAUSAGES. Yes is the end of the TRAIL and the beginning of the Everglades. You can enjoy an Airboat ride or go gamble at the Casino and stop at THE PIT BBQ... view more

Possibly the best operated resturant of its kind

We have visited ""The Pit"" many times during our trips to Dade County and have had only the best and friendly service. Food was great and you have the option of sitting in the A/C restruant or roughing it a little under the covered bar and table area in the patio where your entertained by mucisians. The only thing that could mess up a day there is a bus load of unruly, board kids who would have best taken to McDon... view more

The Food is cooked to order and the m... view more

Racist owner turned away kids - Shameful!

This past Friday, my group of summer camp students and I stopped at The Pit to eat lunch. We had come from a field trip in the area and many of the surrounding businesses had power failures. This place was close by and didn't appear very busy. I had never been to this place before and will never set foot in it again. The owner/manager refused to serve my summer camp students. She claimed that since some had b... view more

This place used to be the best in South Florida, but now its a one star place only because CitySearch wont allow me to give it no stars. The original owners got bought out a few years ago and with it went any semblance of decent flavor in the food or service by the employees. The ""BBQ sauce"" tastes like they simple poured a little white vinegar into a bowl of ketchup. The ribs were tough and the pulled pork was... view more
