A Little Background

Since 1984, Miss Myra's Pit BAR-B-Q has been serving up Birmingham's best pit barbecue and homemade desserts. Operated by Myra Grissom Harper and family, Miss Myra's features barbecued chicken, beef, pork, ribs and sausage. All of our sides are made fresh daily. Our signature White Sauce has been featured in numerous print publications and on several TV shows including NBC13's Daytime Alabama and Andrew Zimmern. For lunch, dinner, or catering, be sure to join us at Miss Myra's Pit BAR-B-Q.

Pit-Smoked Perfection

"Open since 1984, Miss Myra’s serves real hickory-smoked barbecue, cooked in a custom-built brick pit, alongside a killer line-up of homemade Southern desserts. It’s still a family-run restaurant and a favorite with locals, with fantastic chicken, ribs, pulled pork, legendary “white sauce” and a slew of home-style sides such as green beans, coleslaw, potato salad and deviled eggs. Made from just mayonnaise, vinegar, salt and pepper, white sauce is a northern Alabama staple and the condiment of choice for barbecue. Miss Myra’s tangy, creamy version is a perfect dipping sauce for the expertly-smoked chicken, which certainly tops my list of all time favorite barbecued chicken (just look at that skin!). At Myra’s, you must save room for dessert – without question, the banana pudding is the best banana pudding in the world. But don’t stop at the pudding, you gotta try the pies – key lime, chocolate cream, coconut, pecan –  it’s dessert heaven."

The Best BBQ Anywhere

"I have been known to drive several hours for really good "Q", and imagine my surprise when I found Miss Myra's! I have had the pulled pork, brisket, Brunswick Stew, their red and white sauce, and, of course, their southern house wine....SWEET TEA! Everything was amazing and the staff was outstanding. Thanks Miss. Myra's
