The Pit BBQ Grille

About us


Four friends, Bryant Browning, Chimdi Chekwa, D’Andre Martin, and Mike Johnson established the Pit BBQ grille in the summer of 2016. The founders left their respective hometowns for college in Columbus, OH, and met through friends at The Ohio State University. Each of them is an active member of the community and their churches and is pleased to serve you through The Pit BBQ Grille!


The Pit BBQ grille is more than just a BBQ restaurant with great food. Inspired by their own personal bond, the owners created The Pit BBQ Grille to serve as a friend to the community. The Pit brings together each of the owners’ individual experiences with home cooked BBQ and cookouts for everyone to enjoy. The Pit BBQ vows to serve the community with an inviting atmosphere, quality meats, delicious sides, and house made BBQ sauce. The Pit believes in enjoying great food with great people and strives to provide both for the Greater Columbus community. The Pit welcomes you to our Pit style cookout, served all year-round.
