My business colleagues who were from out of town wanted to experience real South Carolina so this was definitely the right place. Food was amazing and so was the service. It is only open Thursday thru Saturday so we were fortunate to get the chance to experience it.

Great food and fantastic service. I was meeting my daughter and her basketball teammates here. I arrived early and they went ahead and sat me down and brought me complimentary sweet potato fries while I waited. WOW! I highly recommend and will be back.

This is the best barbecue restaurant I've ever eaten at. The beef brisket is my favorite and has me spoiled. I can't eat beef brisket anywhere else now because it's such a let down after having it at Smokin' Pigs. This place is a favorite to the locals and highly recommend if you're passing through.

Had barbecue, fried okra and beans. Probably some of the best barbecue I've ever had. Staff was friendly, wait time was very short. Fire pits outside are fun. They sell the biggest bag of pork rinds I have ever seen.

We have always wanted to stop here, as we had heard how great it was. However, it was always so busy when we were in the area that we just never did. Thankfully, on an early Friday afternoon in November, we beat the rush hour. The BBQ here is just amazing, and it was really hard to choose a side... More

The food is very well cooked. Since I live close to the restaurant, I call to order my food so that I can pick it up instead of standing in line to wait for it. Even if it is great to eat in their restaurant, it is fun to take it home to avoid the crowds too.

Ordered ahead with Elizabeth and picked up the food Saturday (gameday) at 9. We had a big order and they put it together for us and everything was taken care of (food, utensils, cups, plates and sternos/sset-ups). They do a great job for us each year. Their BBQ and food is outstanding. The brisket is the best but the glazed... More

Stopped at Smokin' Pig to pick up dinner for the family last night. Everyone loved all the choices with nothing left over.

We did takeout after the grandson's football gamer, and I fed everyone as much as they could eat for $62. Every morsel of every meal was perfect. A must place for southern Bar-B-Que.
