Set amidst a trendy assemblage of bars and pubs on Chapel Allerton’s main thoroughfare Steinbeck Lane, The Pit is one of the latest offerings from nightlife and casual dining connoisseurs, Arc Inspirations. This time, they’ve mastered American BBQ and Mexican food, creating some truly innovative and stomach-busting meals from locally sourced produce.
Step inside this relaxed, underground themed bar and slide into one of the leather booths before sampling a tantalising menu of fresh Mexican favourites and meaty American classics. Highly recommended is the Ultimate Bacon and Cheese burger, stacked full of pork and Monterrey Jack cheese, and the ginormous Pit Master: a towering burger stacked with beef, chicken, bacon, pulled pork, onion rings and melted cheese – not for the faint of heart, or the only-half-hungry.
Other irresistible and authentic American offerings include the sweet potato Philly fries: smothered with pulled beef brisket, blackened onions, mushrooms and melted Monterey Jack cheese, and the deep fried mac ‘n’ cheese balls served with house salsa. Larger plates include the Boston butt – a heap of pulled pork, blackened sweet onions, smashed apple sauce and crispy bacon on corn bread, the sweet and sticky baby back ribs, or home style fried chicken, served with buttered mash potato, sausage gravy, corn bread and BBQ beans.
The Pit’s ‘South of the Border’ Mexican offering includes meat-filled burritos, hot enchiladas, Cajun spiced calamari, and soft-shell tacos filled with pulled pork and pineapple. Diners can round off their meal with a round of table football, or something from The Pit’s incredibly well-stocked bar. Those with a sweet tooth, and vegetarians, are all catered to accordingly by the dessert and vegetarian offerings, and those with kids can be assured that youngsters will go wild for the vibrant, colourful food on offer at The Pit.
With friendly service from wait staff who are both passionate and knowledgeable about the food they serve, a relaxed ambience created by the sultry mood lighting, and a more mature clientele than those who frequent branches in other areas of Leeds, The Pit is the go-to choice for hungry groups of friends in Chapel Allerton.
