New Auburn Barbecue Restaurant Pete’s Pit Opens for Business

Husband and wife duo Jim and Kim Jarvis opened Pete’s Pit, a barbecue restaurant in Auburn, on July 6. The new restaurant is located on Central Avenue at the former site of Hickory Road Barbecue.

“We had always wanted to retire to Auburn,” said Jim, who was born in Auburn and graduated from Auburn High School. “So we started looking for business opportunities in the area.”

The Jarvises found out that Hickory Road Barbecue owners Dan and Rachelle Emshoff were considering selling their Auburn restaurant when they attended the wedding of Jim’s younger sister to Rachelle’s brother.

The Jarvises arranged the purchase from the Emshoffs over the spring and officially assumed ownership of the business on July 3.
