I've recently had two meals from the Danville, Virginia location consisting of a minced BBQ sandwich with slaw on the sandwich and baked beans for a side dish. The bbq portions are generous, tender, flavorful, and simply delicious. Baked beans are great. The menu has a large variety of items should satisfy all diners hungry for BBQ and various sides....

I was in town on business and being from the North wanted some great Southern BBQ. The hotel highly recommended the Checkered Pig. It was just what I wanted. The portions were homemade, large and tasty. The brisket & ribs combo was outstanding. I would definitely go back if I am ever in Danville again. Lastly, I was astounded at... More

Checkered Pig is consistent with serving yummy bbq and short order foods! We always leave satisfied. Onion Rings are homemade not frozen. The sweet tea is good! Never disappointed in the portions.

This restaurant is one of my all time favorite restaurants. We go there weekly. They have several varieties of BBQ and you can dress them with whichever style sauce you prefer from a selection of sauces on each table. If you aren't big on BBQ, they also have great salads, burgers and desserts. The dining area is large and comfortable... More

I have been to this restaurant a handful of times. Usually, enough time passes between visits that I forget and decide to give it another try. I always walk away feeling like I paid way too much for what I received. The food is pretty tasty from what I recall, but the "sides" come in tiny condiment cups. Just feel... More

The Menu is a little over crowded and takes a little time to find out what to order. We both being hungry and not eaten for 6 hrs. Got the BBQ Plate with BBQ/Fries... More
