Our Indian, AK  Southern-style, authentic BBQ was born at the ‘ArmPit’ 6 years ago with our first ole hickory smokers. We began to create fun, family and fantastic food, and we haven’t stopped since(nor do we have any intention to in the future).

Pets Welcome at Turnagain Arm Pit
We love our dogs – ask for a frozen pork shoulder bone for your favorite K-9 when you stop in –

This year we moved just down the road from our Indian ArmPit Shack to the historic former Turnagain House restaurant, still in Indian, just minutes from Anchorage on your way to Girdwood. Our deck and every window has the most stunning views of the Turnagain Arm, to entertain you as you savor the best Southern BBQ you’ve ever had, at least up here on the Northern Frontier. We like to think that at the Turnagain Arm Pit BBQ you can have the best of both worlds. If you want a delicious meal on the beautiful Turnagain Arm, served by friendly staff then stop by and see us today! You’ll be planning your next trip to The PiT before you’ve even finished your food!
