Lots of choices, food was amazing. We tried almost everything and it was all top notch. Our server Kelly was so helpful in letting us know what to try when we first arrived. We loved it all so much that we had to go back. Mason was the chef and we have to say, thank you thank you.

This is an interesting stop in Whitefish for BBQ lovers but I disagree with the "high reviews" in others opinions. It was pretty standard BBQ house fare. Good BBQ, don't get me wrong, but not different in any way except the décor. Id rate it a "Very Good " restaurant since the service was fast and effective and the food... More

To be honest, I haven't been to Piggyback Barbeque. This review is based on the pulled pork sandwich that was given to me after I finished the Two Bear Half Marathon in Whitefish. After that incredibly tough and hilly run I did not think I could possibly drink a beer and eat a sandwich...who knew? I ate the whole thing... More

This is an easy review. Whether local or visitor, if you like barbeque, Piggyback is an automatic. Everything is typical barbeque restaurant, tables, dinnerware (really?), service, ambiance, except the food is fabulous.

I have ordered numerous times to go from Piggyback and recommended to many visitors. I loved their pulled pork and sides. Just a small Whitefish place that's a little out of the way from downtown but a great place for pork barbeque!

Piggyback is a favourite for every trip to Whitefish, my family and friends make sure to visit at least once during every trip. Great outdoor seating in the summer and a comfortable setting inside as well. The pulled pork is fantastic!

Piggyback offers everything that makes Texas BBQ so popular. Generous portions, reasonable prices and a menu full of mouth-watering options. We come all the time and have never been disappointed in anything we ordered. The service can be slow at times, but if you're patient, you wont walk away hungry. We like to start with hush puppies. My usual has... More
