Little has changed since the original Pit opened on Concord Pike in 1956. The restaurant’s retro architecture and trademark neon sign still cause it to stand out along the heavily traveled corridor.
Customers continue to flip for the Pit’s juicy, charbroiled quarter-pound and half-pound burgers and thick milkshakes. And the kids still dig the famous ice cream creations named after local high school teams, as well as the legendary Kitchen Sink. Please note: The Pit does not accept credit cards.
