Great lunch time BBQ. Had the burnt ends or whatever they call it. Very good. Love the beans! All a good value, too. Been here more than once now. Repeat visits are in order here.

Similar to the barbeque we get at the best places in Memphis Tn. Friendly staff, always busy when I went there. Good ribs and great baked beans.

We tried the new one on Maplecrest and it was very good. A little bigger than the one Fairfield. They are both very nice.

We tried the new Sigg’s in pit on Maplecrest Road. The restaurant is comfortable, but not very fancy. Seating is ample, and especially on the patio and in warmer weather. There is a bar area, and they have a multitude of draft beers available. The...More

Description
Shigs in Pit started as a competition BBQ team composed of Mad Anthony owners, Todd Grantham and Jeff Neels along with their friend Stefan Kelley, a networks services manager for Logikos. Within a few short years the team amassed Eleven Kansas City Barbecue Society Grand Championships, Five Reserve Grand Championships and numerous other awards for their smoked meats. In 2012, Grantham and Neels (with the blessing of Kelley) along with Mad Anthony Brewing Company partner Blaine Stuckey opened a restaurant and catering business with their award-winning recipes at the corner of Fairfield and Taylor in Fort Wayne. Shigs in Pit Barbeque is a proud sister company to Mad Anthony Brewing Company.
