This is one of our favorite places to go in Anderson. I love barbecue, & I've never had a bad experience here. I had pulled pork on this visit, but I've also had ribs, chicken, and brisket here and it's all good. The sides are...More

Wasn't sure about the vanity business name, but well earned. Food was delicious and location closer than going to Memphis. The ribs fell off the bones. We ordered wet and dry. Homemade sweet potatoe casserole could not have been better.

Casual dining with excellent pulled pork can't wait to go back. Excellent price/performance. My wife who is not a BBQ person will go here with me since she can find something that she likes on the menu

The Brisket today earned an excellent rating. That's how good it was. Perfectly seasoned and smoked, unbelievably tender- best Brisket I've ever had. And I've had quite a bit of Brisket! The broccoli salad was also exceptionally good. We've always had great BBQ from the...More

Great little BBQ place which serves up generous portions of delicious food. Pulled pork sandwiches were grilled buns filled to overflow with tasty pork. A small container of creamy coleslaw along with a generous side made for a huge meal. Highly recommend the broccoli apple...More

We took a break from moving our son into Clemson and saw the sign for the pompous pig. Who doesn't like good barbecue? When we parked we were a little disappointed that the line was extremely long, but then we decided everybody must know something....More

Description
THE BEST BBQ! Smoked Pork, Ribs, Chicken and Beef Brisket. The meats are smoked daily for 8 to 14 hours in our on-site BBQ Pit using a mixture of woods (Hickory, Pecan, White Oak) combined with unique blends of spices and rubs. Our traditional southern side dishes are cooked from scratch in-house each day. Come on by and visit us early 'cause when it's gone, IT'S GONE!
