Tell City and the surrounding area was first introduced to Bill & Dave's Smokin' Pit in August, 2001, located on Main Street in a small building with carry-out food only. It all started because the employees of the family owned tow truck service got served fantastic barbeque at the company picnic once a year and encouraged them to open up on weekends so that they could still get the good food year round. The demand for their slow-cooked meat and special sauces out grew the facilities. In late November 2002, they relocated to 11th Street with ample room for dine-in and carry-out facilities.

Bill & Dave's Smokin' Pit serves pork, ribs, chicken, mutton, beef, plate lunches, and sandwiches for carryout, catering, or eat-in! The BBQ pork ribs are a must have dish along with the homemade fried chicken. The dessert buffet has some incredible choices including several homemade pies such as their version of Key Lime pie and the famous banana pudding.
