FORT WAYNE Ind. (WANE)- The owners of Shigs and Pit have another award to add to the list. The restaurant has been named the Indiana’s Best Local Barbecue Joint. It is part of the “Best of Indiana” awards presented by Visit Indiana.
Shigs in Pit was one of 19 different barbecue restaurants across the state competing for the title. Squealers BBQ in Mooresville and Barbecue and Bourbon in Speedway rounded out the top three in the category.
The restaurant has only been around since 2012, but owners are no strangers to winning awards. They decided to open Shigs in Pit after winning several awards at barbecue competitions.
Shigs and Pit isn’t Fort Wayne’s only win. Voters named Kuehnert Dairy Farm Indiana’s best U-Pick experience.
