About Port-a-Pit®

We’ve been in the Statesville area since 1986 and have developed a great friendship with the people and groups of not only Iredell county, but surrounding counties of western North Carolina as well.

We are honored to be ranked among the “100 Foods You Must Eat in 100 Counties” that was featured in Our State magazine. Our State also came out and shot a video to get folks acquainted with our fantastic food and service.

Port-a-Pit® is unique in that we’re only open two days a week–don’t miss us! We’ll be around on Wednesdays and Fridays from 11 to 7 p.m.

Inside the Grill

We’re the only Port-a-Pit® in North Carolina–you won’t find our products anywhere else. Our food remains the same whether you eat it today or a month later. There’s no need to worry about the taste ever changing. The secret recipe for our famous sauce, ribs, and chicken is the only thing on the menu not for sale.

Enjoy half a chicken, our most popular size. It’s been said that it’s “the best chicken you’ve ever wrapped your lips around.” We also have delicious barbecue, ribs, and drummettes as well as a variety of sides to complement your meal. Our food is easy to transport so the next time you need something quick to take to a party, come on by!
