Welcome to McGhin’s Southern Pit Bar-B-Que

We Treat Our Customers Like Family

Welcome to McGhin’s Southern Pit Bar-B-Que, one of the most popular barbeque restaurants in the Southeast. Our business was opened in 1984 by Fred and Brenda McGhin in a small house in Sunnyside, GA. Due to phenomenal growth, Southern Pit moved to larger quarters in Griffin, GA in 1990 where it still resides today.
