This was the first time I had eaten there. Nothing fancy but food was good. It was clean. Did not like the music but to each their own

We recently visited shigs in pit in Fort Wayne. The food was good, but not great. The portions were rather small for the price. Overall, I might visit again but it definitely wasn't my favorite.

Great local spot for awesome BBQ meats. Pulled pork, chicken, ribs, brisket. It's all good. Lunch is very busy. Dinner time not so bad.

We were visiting from out-of-town and are from much further south where we can get REALLY good BBQ. So we weren't all that impressed with the meat or sauce here. The sides were fabulous, though.

Food is great. Mac n cheese was wonderfully spicy. I like that there is all the sauce you want at the table so you can try different kinds.

The best barbecue I know of in Ft. Wayne. At our office, we often carry in for our celebrations. They have a lot of variety and it is very reasonable in costs.
