This advertisement for The Pit in Searcy AR is in a 1967 yearbook. 1967 is the year that I made Searcy my home so I'm trying to remember as much as I can about The Pit.
Sleuths will set me straight if I mess up.
Seems that I remember it being on East Race Street quite a ways out from downtown Searcy. I'm thinking it was the place known for its fried chicken that you could pick up and carry home instead of frying the bird yourself.
Remembering "frying the bird myself" as I used to do reminds me of the day that I decided never to do that again. The stove in my house had no ventahood so the smell stayed and stayed in the kitchen and in the house. I tried oven frying for awhile and that worked a bit better but eventually I decided to buy it precooked. Kentucky Fried may have been coming into Searcy about that time but I seem to remember picking up chicken at this Pit.
So, Sleuths, if you read this, tell us more about this popular place in Searcy AR.
