Not crazy about pulled pork 2nd time I've tried and it's so fatty I am only able to eat a few bites. The sides are all amazing and my hubby does love the ribs.

A friend and I were in town for The Vera Bradley Warehouse sale. We asked a local for a recommendation for dinner and Shigs and Pits is what she recommended. We went and it was sooooo good. You order at the counter. Two sides come with your dinner. I asked how the potato casserole was and they gave me a... More

As soon as you pull into the parking lot you cannot wait to order. The smokey BBQ smell is amazing. Order the Big Shig Platter if it is your first visit. That way you can taste a variety of items. Not a huge place inside for dining. Carryout also available.

Ok I smoke my own brisket, pork butt, and chicken. Use green egg and treager grill. Do think I do a fair job myself, but if you want great consistent quality meal with no effort come here. It takes me 16-18 hours on my own, just minutes here. Burnt ends excellent, sides great, spoon cornbread amazing!!!

Basic barbeque, a little pricey. Self serve-they call your name you pick it up and don't forget to grab silverware

Although the awesome name might be what initially draws you here, the incredible food is going to bring both me and you back time and again. If nothing else, you HAVE to try the baked beans, which include real apple pie filling. They're one of the craziest, most delicious things I've ever tasted.

This is one of THE best BBQ places I have ever visited. I absolutely love just about anything BBQ'd. The ribs are super tender and tasty, even without sauce. They are served with just a dry rub and they offer three different sauces on the table. I highly recommend the tangy sauce although it is very runny. I'm not a... More

Pork, beef, chicken, sausage.... Smoked meat! Get the ribs, always solid. Pulled pork is yumm! I say go and try anything and it'd be a good idea. This place does it right. Enjoy
