My wife was intent on barbeque and turned into the Pig immediately on hitting Beale Street. The place was MOBBED, and wildly understaffed (two waitresses for everyone!) so it was a while before anyone even acknowledged us. However, once she did, our meals and our 40 oz (!!) beers showed up almost instantly. I have never seen a harder working... More

Came by during Memphis in May BBQ with a group of 9. I should've known something was up when we were 1 of 3 tables at noon. Chicken sandwich was so dry, we were blowing sawdust. Hot chicken legs were okay but nothing special. Ribs were decent, beans tasted like pork and beans with BBQ sauce. My wife's pulled pork... More

After strolling down Beale St., my brother and I wanted Ribs! Pig on Beale didnt disappoint us. We had the puuled pork nachos and theu were sooo delicious. The pork had the right amount of smoky flavor and texture I was looking for. And the ribs were a 10. I would definitely recommend this place.

One thing about the Pig that is undisputed - there is no doubt their meats are smoked. Not exactly sure of the wood used, but I'm guessing it's hickory. Doesn't matter, it's all outstanding. Had the sampler platter, which included pulled pork, baby back ribs, and a chicken thigh. I requested that all be served 'dry' so that I can... More

The BBQ is delicious. The meat can be eaten dry or with their BBQ sauce. It is that good. The pulled pork and ribs are amazing. I was not impressed with the service. No one was friendly, they were there to do their job and that's it. But the meat is good!

Walked from Sun Studio all the way down Beale St and decided to try PoB. Decent food at a reasonable price. Don't be put off by the fairly dark entrance. Friendly waiting staff and prompt service.

Our trip leader for a service trip to Baton Rouge recommended this as THE spot for BBQ in Memphis. We all tried the options offered and enjoyed our evening meal! There were many claims of "best in Memphis", but the Pig has proof of the recognitions earning their claim posted on the walls. We enjoyed our BBQ and you will... More

We're from Kansas City MO and fell in love with this Memphis style BBQ!!! We had gone to Beale Street for some people watching and souvenir shopping. The aromas from all the restaurants were amazing! We decided BBQ was the way to go! The name and the gentleman out front is what caught our eye. We asked the gentleman if... More
