A casual order at the counter service with helpful staff for selections and a few small tables to eat. Their favorite- brisket or smoked turkey. Two in our party ordered a selection of meats and voted the pulled pork as the top fav! The brisket was just a tad overdone our night but still great. Loved the barbeque sauce- please consider bottling! Favorite side was the baked beans. My husband is not a vinegar slaw man- he likes mayo. Both of us felt the potato salad lacked flavor- even with the stadium mustard. The sausage was labeled as hot but we felt it was rather tame though very very flavorful.

What a great BBQ place! Liked it better than Mabel's downtown! Portion sizes were great & the prices were fair! Even brought home leftovers! We will be back! I attached a picture of my husband's sandwich...The Proper Slopper.

Food was Smokin' Good!! Beef brisket done perfectly w/crispy burnt good skin, pulled pork was smothered with just the right sweetness/smokiness, bbq sauce/onions/pickles was perfect side condiments, beans had 2-3types of beans in it with a hint if jalepenos. This place was casual and perfect for some home goodness BBQ. Must try!!

For a great meal without pretentiousness, you must try Lakewood' s smokehouse restaurant, The Proper Pig! Hubby and I are huge pulled pork, turkey and beef lovers and had a great meal there over the weekend. In true Carolina style, YOU add flavors to the perfectly prepared meats. Had pulled pork that melted in my mouth- so tender. Sampled turkey; will order that in the future. Make no mistake we will return over and over again. I had potato salad as a side- nice big portion and tasty. Husband did not care got the equally sized portion of coleslaw. Beer selection limited but any beer drinker can find one brew they like. Capacity limited in this storefront smokehouse. No wait staff, just walk up to the counter and order. Staff extremely welcoming with e plantations and samples, when asked. A perfect Saturday dinner!

Tried the 3 meat sampler and would do it again. The crusty bark on the pulled pork was great, as was the brisket (pepper was predominant with what seemed to be hint of clove).
