We ate here twice while we were on Coronado Island two weeks ago! We especially loved the BBQ nachos! Our waiters and waitresses were super friendly and helpful!

We ate lunch and each had the Pulled Pork Sandwich with their beans and fountain drinks. We were greeted very well by everyone we came into contact with there and sandwich was delicious as well as the basic BBQ sauce.

We love to visit Lil' Piggy's on Coronado Island. Driving and parking are easy. We had the ribs and they were fall off the bone amazing! Also tried the brisket chili - it was so spicy we could hardly eat it:(

We went there based on the rating and great reviews. The pulled pork was great and the corn fritter were to die for. However the brisket was fatty, dry and tuff. Maybe I got a bad piece. I did mention to the waitress and she...More

Tried the pulled pork sandwich, the ribs & the corn fritters. All were very good & generous in size. The only item which wasn't a homerun for me were the bbq beans. (okay but not fantastic) We would definitely go back again.
