The Purple Pig has great BBQ dinners and my favorite is fried catfish. The service is friendly and fast. We have not had a bad experience!

Not much else around that area to eat which is why we stopped. Average food, nothing to write home about but not bad.

The Purple Pig is an easy place to go to for a meal. It's not fancy. It's not quite a whole-in-the-wall but we like the informality. We always get pulled pork, ribs, beans, slaw & banana pudding. Most of the timed we go through the drive-thru window. Service is good.

Love to eat here often. Favs: chopped beef in any form but with stuffed potato with extra butter, sour cream and bacon, it is beyond great. I like fried catfish and fried okra! Love it here!

Purple Pig is good eats n East Texas. Like many great BBQ joints, it boasts a genuine rustic theme and backs it with a great selection of BBQ meats and sides. It is one of my regular stops when I'm on the SW side of Tyler and I've never been disappointed.
