Large portions, great service. Pull pork and BBQ Ribs were great. Corn bread is moist and buttery. One of the best BBQ places around. Fast service but it was went it had just opened for lunch. Will definitely return. Piggy décor was awesome. TVs for sports

This was a catered lunch at our church, serving the same food that you get at the restaurant. The restaurant owner was a pleasure to work with, her staff was courteous and the food was delicious. Would have them cater again. Eating at the restaurant gives the same result. Best broccoli salad ever!!!

Stopped for a quick lunch...really enjoyed the '1/2 Chicken w/2 Sides' (mine were a fresh, large side salad & big baked sweet potato, plus yummy corn bread)... all promptly served by friendly, helpful server 'Calli'. A positive experience in fun, old-style BBQ 'joint' among many locals who appreciate over 20 years of experience. Thanks, ...Pigs Fly 'team' ;-)

If you love meat cook on Open Flame this is the place to eat. The decor is lacking and needs updating. I do not particularly care for the fried sides, but love the chicken and sweet potatoes baked.

Located just off busy US 13, Where Pigs Fly has been around for decades, little changed over the years . . . and it's beginning to show. Like many long-time BBQ restaurants, it seems to take pride in it's slightly shabby, dated appearance. Sadly, the service and food have also become a bit tired. When we arrived (we'd been here...

We have been coming here for years. Whenever we are in Delaware we go out of our way to stop in. We have never been disappointed. It is a family friendly restaurant!

I went to this restaurant with friends. Being v-v, I only had fried pickles to eat and cheerwine to drink. The salads, soups, and entrees are made with pig or chicken. The wait staff was nice and the restaurant was pleasant with a fireplace.

Smell outside was amazing. It was an older looking place inside. Very friendly wait staff, quick to bring out the food. Alot for the price. Im a fan of carolina (vinegar) bbq but they only had two sauces but not bad. I had the pork, huge portion, good but not the best i've had. Mac n cheese, yummy, hot corn... More
