Famous Dishes

Smoked barbecue

At 30 hours, the barbecue at The Brick Pit in Mobile is smoked longer than anywhere else in the U.S., making it melt-in-your-mouth tender. Order your choice of chicken, pork or ribs – or any combination of the three – with either spicy or regular barbecue sauce. No matter what you choose, you won’t be disappointed. Don’t forget the sides! The Brick Pit doesn’t have an oven or a stove, so the baked beans are also cooked in the smoker, giving them the same great flavor as the restaurant’s famous barbecue.
