The food here is alright. A bit overpriced For the area. Have had better, but was raised near NYC where most everything is better than in this area. Comparable to most places in the area, but the sides are good.

Best BBQ around-my husband loves the beef brisket! The sides are amazing. Have everyone get a different one so you can try them all. Excellent service and friendly staff-our family loves to stop in here during visits to Clemson.

This restaurant is only open Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, and the parking lot almost always looks full, but don't let that dissuade you from eating here! There are plenty of spaces, and any wait moves quickly -- a couple things to note about the wait...More

A stop at The Smoking Pig is a must if you're in Clemson, Anderson - really anywhere in South Carolina. BBQ is awesome from ribs to brisket to pulled pork. Done just right and a variety of sauces to compliment the meat. Sides are plentiful...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Does the plates, utensils, cups etc. come with the order? How long in advance do you need to cater a head count of 35-40 people? What do you charge for kids six and under?

I'm not sure about the details but I've had their catering on numerous occasions (most recent experience was Dec 2016) & have never been disappointed! it's always busy so I think the sooner you contact them, the better.
