They actually call themselves the Checkered Pig BBQ & Ribs. Don't pass this up when you are in the area. Great atmosphere and food. Friendly staff. The ribs were finger-lickin good. The kids loved the burger and sides.

The Checkered Pig has the best barbecue in the south. They have won so many competitions and have been on the Food network! Everything they serve is delicious!

Really enjoyed the hometown atmosphere and good southern barbecue. It was very busy but the service was still good. We had the pulled pork plates. The portions were large and the homemade banana pudding topped off a great meal.
