Built in 1936 as the Armour Meat Processing Plant, this building was serviced by the nearby railroads spur and loading dock that are still in place on the west side of the building. In 2004, the building was redevelopment by Empire Properties and opened as Nana's Chophouse, a fine dining restaurant. In 2007, space was transformed into The Pit Authentic Barbecue, a casual dining restaurant that celebrates all the culinary offerings of North Carolina. The building still has its original Art Deco cast concrete caps. The roll-up doors facing West Davie Street have been converted into glass panels, giving patrons an excellent view of the original Raleigh train depot and an open-air dining experience in suitable weather.
