Am local and drove by this place many times before stopping in for the first time last year. Now I'm a Little Pigs addict, can't get enough. Elizabeth and Bob have been serving their own smoked meats from a roadside trailer set up in their front yard for many years. Bob - who is from the deep South - puts... More

Owner is from KC and offer a great pulled pork sandwich and rib tips. It is a road side trailer in front of their house that you don't want to miss.

Not anything else like this anywhere for miles. The BBQ was very nice, the sides were ok, not bad. I was very happy to see something like this instead of the normal 'up north' offerings which aren't the most inspired. Very nice folks offering good food in a different setting that made for a very fun experience.

In the area, we stopped here to grab a sandwich. The pork was delicious! The owners are very nice and plan to stay open this winter, so if you're in the area stop by for some wonderful food that you rarely find in this neck of the woods.

Great food. Nice little road side stop. No frills, but who needs them anyway? Pulled pork was delicious! Side dishes seemed like nothing other than that from a grocery store deli, but I could he wrong. So, if you are contemplating a smaller portion of meat to save room for sides, get more meat instead....

It's hard to find anything other than good fish fry in this area of the country, so when you see a place with good reviews for BBQ, you need to stop and check it out. Just south of the casino in Watersmeet, MI, on the left hand side of 45, there are signs sitting outside of a white house that... More

Bob & Elizabeth showed our family what southern food and Wisconsin hospitality Should be like. Amazing couple. Even more amazing food. We sampled the rib tips and pork sammys and they were amazing. If the ribs hadn't sold out by our arrival we would have bought some to go!

This is a no-frills eating stop but never use that as you're guide to great BBQ. Even if you just ate you owe it to yourself to stop here and try their ribs or rib ends. Grab some for later too. This is a rare find for those who know good BBQ. Little Pigs knows their smoke!! Hard to find... More

You wanna meet Bobby and Elizabeth, owners of LIttle Pigs. They are personable and very friendly. If you want authentic bbq, this is the place to eat. They have their own magic rub and delicious bbq sauce. Everything is always served with a big smile. You can eat it there or take it to go. There is no skrimping on... More
