The West Seattle location will feature indoor seating, and an outdoor deck as well as a drive through. The new Pecos locations will serve the same famous Pecos Pit BBQ found on 1st avenue for decades

Pecos Pit traces their roots to 1980 when Ron & Debra Wise opened Pecos Pit Bar-B-Que™ in Seattle, WA on 1st Avenue South where it has operated for the past 33 years. That location, even with limited hours weekdays, has developed a cult like following with long lines forming before lunch every weekday. Now they have teamed up with Salty's on Alki owners Gerry and Kathryn Kingen to take the name and flavors to a wider audience.

Offerings will include traditional pork, beef, and chicken sandwiches in a decidedly sloppy style, plus beef brisket, and hot links, with prices ranging from $7.75 to $9.50. You can add hot links; as well as bleu cheese, sharp cheddar, smoked bacon, cole slaw, pickles, extras sauce and onions. New variations include stuffed smoked potatoes (sweet or russet) for around $8, and a “Walkabouts ™ Bowl” filled with the meat of your choice plus cheese, cold slaw and sauce. They will offer healthy salads made with your choice of smoked meat, or have it veggie style, with baby kale, olives, tomatoes, cowboy caviar, cheddar cheese, and blue cheese or ranch dressing.

You can even buy bulk, smoked meats including Pecos pork, beef brisket, turkey legs, and smoked chicken ranging from $7.95 to $14.95 per pound.

Kingen is planning on opening a number of company owned locations locally and intends to expand nationally.
