This place is a two for one. The BBQ is good as well as the plate lunch they sell. Another solid choice if you are looking for BBQ but keep in mind the plate lunch.

While we got there just as they were closing for lunch the staff was great! The food was awesome even though it had been out for a while. Smoked 1 inch pork chop, turnip green with just enough fat an flavor, but the mac & cheese was killer! Theirs is the extra creamy style with so much butter and cream... More

We have eaten or picked up Pigskin food several times. Most food items are flavorful, but the restaurant is so dirty I'm not going to return. Today we noticed dried food stuck to many surfaces, including the edges of tables. Really needs a thorough cleaning from tope to bottom.

Nice menu selection of meats and side items. BBQ is very good (tried both the chicken and pulled pork). Great sports atmosphere and family friendly dining. Food is always served in a timely manner.

Their pulled pork is excellent. Sides are fair, but not great. The dining room is starting to look old and dirty. Needs a good cleaning.

This place has been around a while. Despite the fact that there are a lot of BBQ places around Jackson, truly good ones are hard to find. Everybody wants to do one, but it's difficult to maintain the quality of the

The ribs are just okay. The sauces have a store-bought taste to it as well. Nothing makes them stand out from any other restaurant. The baked beans were okay too, but one of the staff members flat out told me that they were Bushes so that would explain the non-homemade taste there. They claim to smoke their meat for 3... More

The bbq pulled pork is very good, but the ribs are average. My main problem is the price. I bought a pulled pork plate with two sides and a drink and it cost $15. I can get the finest bbq in the country for less than that. Just not worth the price.

I visit Pigskin often and without a doubt the pulled port sandwich is some of the best I have had anywhere! Love it!

My wife and I were very pleased with the best BBQ we may have ever had ever, and definitely the best we've ever had for $22! Great service, speedy meal delivery and wonderful taste. If you're in Jackson, you gotta come check out The Pigskin!
