Our Story

Wade McSwain was born in Dothan, Alabama and Tracy McSwain in Kent County, Michigan – a true example of North meets South. Wade had managed several chain restaurants, and Tracy was educated in Food Systems Management. Together in September 2008, they opened Pit Boss BBQ. Following their passion, Wade and Tracy have created a southern pit style restaurant rich in savory offerings.

What our Customers are saying

One of the best bbq spots I have ever been too. Little tiny hole in the wall tucked behind another shop and close to the airport. I will continue to come here absolutely delicious ribs and brisket. The baked beans are phenomenal. Run don't walk!!!
