And informed me he was the owner like I was to be impressed that he owns a BBQ joint. It took days for the refund of the overcharged money to be processed... More

Make sure you realize this is a buffet. As such the food is made in very large quanties and sits under a warming light. The food was alright but not worth a Top 3 places to eat in Columbian SC.

Although there were 5 of us and they were very busy we were seated fast! You could tell Little Pigs was a favorite of the locals. This was the second time we ate here and they never disappoint! My ultimate favorite dish is the tomato pie!! Wish I could get the recipe. Being from the north it was a real... More

If you are in the Ft Jackson area for a couple of days, this BBQ is a must try. It is a southern buffet with a tomato, vinegar, and mustard base pulled pork BBQ. There are too many items to list but for around $10 per person on a weekday, this place was awesome!

Very busy. Lots of kids screaming... Lots of food. Very little taste.. Just lots of it. Far from BBQ... was just cooked food I am glad I went. It was different, but not my thing. Very Cheap Eats

Nephew wasn't allowed off base so we brought the party to him. Reasonably priced so a party for 12-adults was a great price. The food was fabulous. Pork and chicken was great bbq. Mac and cheese and green beans were the sides that knocked it out of the park. Check their opening times. BTW banana pudding is hreat

My main reason for going to Little Pigs is not for the barbecue but solely for the hushpuppies. I can eat them alone.

My family's favorite BBQ restaurant in Columbia, SC. We love the variety of meats and all the delicious sides they offer. Better go with empty stomach because you will need that extra space with all you can eat
