Porky's BBQ is wonderful and real hickory smoked BBQ, not city stuff! Staff are excellent and food is always hot and delicious. They offer a wide range of food choices, fish, steak, chicken, burgers, hotdogs, fries, etc. Always pleased and enjoyed meals.

I go here at least once a week, try different things. Service is awesome, really nice waitresses. The BBQ is good, salad bar and hot bar are also good. Feeling let down lately with some of my food, dry chewy pork chops, watery Kraft mac and cheese, incomplete pick-up orders. I wanted a turkey on toast with l/t/mayo, house salad... More

Wife and I stopped by travelling through one evening. We had a sandwich and a plate, both excellent value for the money. Moist and flavorful BBQ although I like a bit more smoke. Loved the hush puppies, best I've had, baked beans had a little too much ketsup. Loved the classic feel to the place, as authentic as it gets!

Breakfast omelet was great. Too much to eat. Fried potatoes and toast rounded out the breakfast. Waitstaff was wonderful. Will be back.

Stopped here for lunch. They offer a buffet/salad bar. Got a bbq plate. It was just okay. I've had better bbq. The prices seemed a little high. Service was good.

I stopped here for an early dinner because traffic has been very slow and I still have an hour or more to drive home. I had been here before and always enjoyed the food. I will return here next time I'm in the area.

My family stopped in for dinner and did the all you can eat buffet. Tonight it had fried chicken, chicken livers, and ham with a variety of veggies. I found the sweet potato casserole to be outstanding as well as the pinto beans, corn, and Mac and cheese. The salad bar was very well stocked, and desert was apple or... More
