Our group ordered pork chop, chicken and pulled pork. Sides were mayo slaw, baked beans, Mac and cheese, and mashed potatoes. All were excellent. Nice assortment of bbq sauces. Atmosphere is average, people behind the counter are extremely courteous and friendly.

My husband and I had dinner here while visiting Bowling Green. Excellent BBQ! We had the pulled pork which was delicious. Baked beans, vinegar coleslaw, mac and cheese and mashed potato sides were also very good. They only make a certain amount each day so make sure you order early! We even bought T-shirts.

I have been to many, many BBQ places and Smokey Pig is nothing special. Food is average, price is average, and service was average. Had the pulled pork plate with vinegar slaw and baked beans. It was just average. Not good enough to return.

This is my second trip to the Smoky Pig and it was a consistent visit. Really good food that's well priced. The people are friendly as well. It's worth a stop for quick food.
