A new Hulu series, Eater’s Guide to the World, gives viewers an authentic look into the lives of locals and their favorite tasty cuisines in cities all over the world. From Casablanca to Atlanta, Eater has uncovered the best food that these cities have to offer. The ATL Airport District is home to Pit Boss BBQ, featured on the recent “Taking Off in America” episode. This episode took a look at restaurants in close proximity to the airport, fit for a quick layover pitstop, and highlighted the familiar faces of the restaurant, why not to skip on the brisket sandwich, and owner Wade McSwain’s unique rib preparation technique. Eater gave viewers an inside look at why so many people consider Pit Boss to be an Atlanta staple and continue coming back year after year.

Pit Boss BBQ has been a local Atlanta favorite since 2008, when owners Wade and Tracy McSwain brought their restaurant industry experience and love for their community together, bringing Pit Boss BBQ to life. Pit Boss BBQ serves Southern homestyle barbecue favorites such as smoked ribs and slow cooked wings, but rave reviews have brought their brisket to the forefront – attracting people from all over to enjoy. Many have described Pit Boss BBQ as a hidden gem, but its popularity among both the local community and travelers passing through the District continues to grow. This Eater’s Guide to the World episode proves that dining near the airport can be a treat when you’re in the ATL Airport District.  

Along with their love for the food, the Pit Boss BBQ owners are especially dedicated to community efforts in Hapeville. These two are well-admired in their community, showing support for education, their heritage and Atlanta community development. Stay tuned for a new location – still in Hapeville – coming soon!
