Pig in a Poke is a great place to eat. The food is good and portions are satisfying. My favorite meal is "Three Little Pigs" and loaded fries. It comes with three small sandwiches (pulled pork, beef brisket, and pulled chicken). Ask to sit in the back room or on the deck overlooking the river for a great view.

We had a family reunion on Labor Day weekend. We order a bunch of BBQ to go for our party. It was so good. There is not many times where I want a second sandwich, but here I did. I also loved the buns that came with the BBQ they was nice and fresh. You should definitely check it out.

I went there with my husband. The wait staff was friendly and efficient. I had the chicken. It was really good. The Mac n cheese was good and the baked sweet potato was HUGE! The atmosphere was nice...there's a bar in the main seating area.Lots of tv's for watching football!

I recently ate at Pig In A Poke and was very satisfied! The restaurant was clean and the smell of the wood chips could be smelled throughout. The waitress was super nice and very helpful. The food was really tasty, hot, and came to me very quickly. I got the combo brisket and pulled chicken dinner with baked beans, hot... More

The food was amazing, service was lacking personality or the hospitality to recommend anything after saying it was our first time there. Also discouraging to be told the don't offer Veteran/military discount but offer a nice one to snot nosed college kids.

This is a new barbeque restaurant opened in Pikeville, Ky. It's owners own a restaurant of the same name in Prestonsburg, KY which you do have a rating for. However, the one in Pikeville is a separate restaurant which requires a seperate rating. I have pictures and have eaten there recently. Thanks!!!!
