We have been to the Pit surf shop countless times on trips to the OBX and decided to take the crew there on taco night mid week, great choice! Value priced tacos mid week to feed our group of about 12. We went back on a different day and discovered the wraps, they are huge and delicious. The S turns... More

Tuesday night taco night has become a staple of life in Kill Devil Hills, so they tell me. I went for the $1.50 beef tacos and had three of them along with two bottles of Pacifico since this lovely beer from Mazatlan was on special as well. Yes! I would have been swayed towards giving The Pit four stars had... More

Every year we go to the Outer Banks we have to stop at The Pit. The waiters and waitresses are so friendly and the food is great. The atmosphere inside is all about surfing and is decorated really neat. They have a game room upstairs for kids which is always nice while they're waiting for the food to come out.... More

Just spent 10 min. trying to put an order together for take out from The Pit Bar and Grill. I can not comment on the food or atmosphere because I wanted to place a take out order. When I called, I was prompted by the restaurant that they were to busy and would not accept any take-out orders and fairly... More

We went to dinner at The Pit for Tuesday Tacos. My daughter had lived at worked in the area and was thrilled during our recent vacation to revisit some of favorite eateries. The upstairs was packed and they asked if we wanted to eat down stairs. Oh my, what can I say it's a "pit" dark dreary, dirty looking. But... More

We were looking for seafood for lunch and came across this place. It was disappointing that seafood was not on the menu. The cheeseburgers were gigantic and so delicious. Seating was a problem for the 7 of us. Very few tables totally. We sat at the bar on stools that weren't comfortable at all.

If you are in no rush this place is for you. The food was great awesome burritos and salsa was amazing. Wings hot and spicey but it took about an hour for our meals. We sat upstairs in I want to say the original building. Reminded our group of our college years. The kids were getting a little restless. Overall... More

Some of my family (my husband, my two brothers, and girlfriend) were looking for a place that did Taco Tuesdays so we google searched Taco Tuesday OBX and this place came up. After further looking we discovered that they were only a minute away so we decided to try it out. The restaurant is down to earth, laid back, and... More

I wrote a review years ago for the Pit raving about their tacos and salsa. What I wanted to write about now is how I have been unable to eat there the last 10 times I went! As a local, I know that on "Taco Tuesday" you are going to have to wait for a table, so we try going... More
