Peco's Pit has been open since around 1980, and it's a great spot for BBQ. There are a few picnic tables, and if it’s cold, space heaters will keep you (and your BBQ) warm. We recommend the pulled brisket sandwich on an onion roll with a side of smoked mac and cheese, which is spicy, creamy, and made with ziti.
