McGhin’s Southern Pit Bar-B-Que is one of the most popular barbeque restaurants in the Southeast (where barbeque was born). Southern Pit was opened in 1984 by Fred and Brenda McGhin (with the help of family and friends) in a small house in Sunnyside, GA. Because of its phenomenal growth, Southern Pit BBQ built and moved to larger quarters in Griffin, GA in 1990. In addition to great tasting, slow smoked BBQ and all the fixins, another cornerstone of McGhin’s popularity is their genuinely friendly approach to service. They know how to treat their customers so that they feel that they are part of the family. The combination of McGhin’s award-winning food, their cordial service and their reasonable prices turns first time customers into customers for life.
