My family loves Shigs and Pit. Food is always great and sauces are the best. Great sides too ~ potatoes and cucumber salad are my favorites.

Enjoyed my ribs and brisket combo...ribs were to the perfect 'doneness', so was the brisket...didn't care too much for the jalapeno cheddar sausage...spoon cornbread and baked beans were great...the only disappointment was the powdered lemonade....COME ON MAN!!!! gotta have fresh lemonade!!

This is truly a family restaurant. Nice selection of barbecued meats. The corn casserole is fabulous. We also enjoy eating outside on the picnic tables in the summer.

Great food and multiple sauces. Excellent place for catering a casual but tasty meal. Limited sides but all you need.

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.
