About us

Welcome to our new Take-Out Restaurant!

Come join the family at our BBQ Soul Food take-out restaurant. We offer a wide variety of options that will provide that home-cooked experience. We are located at 182 Middle Turnpike West Manchester, CT 06040. Give us a call to say ‘Hi’ at 860-646-1400!

At Thomas’ Smokey Pit Stop, we offer a variety of options to meet your specific event needs. Options include bulk party tray delivery (delivery fees may apply and is subject to availability), self-service buffet set-up or the ultimate Smokey Pit Stop Experience Package which includes buffet set-up with smoker on-site (service fees apply). Looking for something else? Give us a call and we’ll customize a menu or service option just for you. Please plan in advance – all catering orders require at least a 72 hour notice – longer time is needed for larger and more inclusive service options. Thank you and we look forward to making your event outstanding!
