Great place. For real excellent barbecue with great sides as well. Started off with the wolf turds. The sausage in them is terrific. Only possible criticism is they were a little greasy but that may be more a plus than a minus. The ribs were...More

Great food at all 3. This one closest to us. Brisket best outside of Texas. If you're lucky, Paul the owner will show you the smokers out back.

Great pulled pork, ribs, sauces & sides. Take out for large family dinners and parties - makes it super easy to feed everyone and tasty, too!

I've been to all 3 locations of Smoking Pig, and they're consistently fantastic. Everything I've eaten has been excellent, but it's all about the Burnt Ends. Their prices are reasonable, the staff is very friendly, and the food is wonderful.

We are a very casual BBQ "joint" in the traditional sense. The focus is on the food. Slow smoked meats, homemade sides, rubs, sauces and desserts. Friendly service, at home feel. Excellent beer and wine lists (no kidding). Genuine Southern BBQ. Everything made in-house. Our mission is your delight. We Cater too! 25 to 5000 people.
