Place wasn't what I expected for such good reviews. Ordered BBQ sandwich and beans Beans came in a Styrofoam container that was small like for ketchup or something. Sandwich was ok and the sweet sauce was good.. Downside was almost $10 for a sandwich a bean chips and small drink... May go back if someone makes me........

The Mean Pig has such good pork sandwiches, that I actually crave them from time to time. My favorite is with slaw & sweet sauce! Excellent! Would recommend. The only missing puzzle piece for me is that they do not have French fries. If they had dinner cut fries with just salt, it would be a perfect meal!

Friendly staff and amazing food and really good prices. A must go to for food. If you leave here hungry you are doing something wrong.

Bud and Lori have been doing BBQ for over 20 years now. They started in a literal horse trailer on the side of the road and have built the business on great service and extraordinary BBQ. It's a legendary Cabot institution.

This is one of the best bbq places. If you like a challenge try the Shut Up Juice. Man vs Food featured Mean Pig on one of its episodes.
