Probably, I wouldn't have ventured here on my own, since I don't eat pork... ever, but I was with friends and I assumed correctly that I would find something that I could enjoy. This was a very good experience... not shiny and new, but welcoming...More

We really enjoyed the Smoking Pig. We were in the area and you could smell it down the street. The prices were very reasonable and the quantity of food impressive. My husband and I shared the combo platter. What I loved was they had no...More

Staff was super friendly and food was delicious! Parking lot is a little funky...not much room to maneuver so if staying at a near-by hotel, I'd walk over.

It doesn't look like much from the outside. You'll have to park on the street. It's not near anything else. BUT the BBQ is THE BEST! The Chicken Lollipops are deep in flavor. Any of the meat combos are a safe bet. And the sides!...More

I receive my plate of short ribs and brisket and I'm disappointed at the portion size. I chose the fatty brisket aside from the lean brisket and decided to start there. Omfg, $17.95 for this plate is worth it. Still disappointed at the portion size...More

We are a very casual BBQ "joint" in the traditional sense. The focus is on the food. Slow smoked meats, homemade sides, rubs, sauces and desserts. Friendly service, at home feel. Excellent beer and wine lists (no kidding). Genuine Southern BBQ. Everything made in-house. Our mission is your delight. We Cater too! 25 to 5000 people.
