I almost hate to publish this, because Georgia Pig is a 'secret local hangout' that is family run for decades. You see the pit right across the counter! All their meats are good, especially the pulled pork. I agree with the other reviews that their ribs could be better; NOT falling off the bone delicious.

Came here with Groupon, which was bought based on the positive reviews. Was very disappointed. Ribs were undercooked, tough and skimpy on the meat. While the bar b q sauce that was on the ribs was tasty, it was not enough. We then used the bottle of sauce that they gave us, which was obviously watered down and not up... More

I drive by here every day on my way to and from work, and you can smell the wood burning. I've eaten here a couple of times, and the service is great, and the food is fantastic. Pork is great, and I can't wait to try the burger next time. You can't beat the prices.

Great pulled pork! There once a week. Pulled beef is OK but stick with the pulled pork. Ribs were a little dry but to be fair I only tried them once The beans are good and now they even serve them every day. Cold slaw is a creamy and a little sweat and I really like it! Service is a... More

We visited Georgia Pig about 10 years ago and weren't exactly excited with our experience so didn't go back, but thanks to a recent Groupon, we had incentive to give them another shot. Earlier this week, we went over about 6:30pm but they were clean outta ribs. Disappointed, we headed off for our favorite pizza joint. Yesterday we tried again... More

Came in at noon and they did not have any ribs till 2PM. I had a laugh about that. Must be Georgia Mule. Slow to move or cook. Left the place but if you were looking for anything but Pig you were covered. Sorry, a little humor there :)

Real, authentic BBQ, Brunswick Stew, etc...This place never disappoints. The help remembers you. Crowded, busy, fun atmosphere. Took one of my German friends there once, who generally complains about everything, and even he thought it was great.

The decor is neon signage, plaid curtains with wood paneling, I kept looking for the American Pickers (Mike & Frank). It looks old but it is clean and well maintained. And for 7am this staff is friendly. They don't serve barbecue until 11am, and I will be back for a pork platter with their mustard sauce. Its cash only, so... More

Their breakfast is amazing. Eggs and bacon were fixed exactly right. The toast was actually brought to the table fairly warm but the fried potatoes left something to be desired that a little seasoning could not cure but with everything else I could not even eat all the potatoes. The sausage was even better than the bacon. Reasonably priced and... More

My youngest son kept telling me I had to go here and told his dad he had to take me here or else he didn't love me. (Inside joke) After enough frustration he had an opportunity to come down from Orlando and took me here himself today for lunch!! He ordered us the Pork Deluxe and I have to say... More
