I alone hired/payed for 3 meats 3 vegetables and tea for a catered party of 150-200ppl. Bbq chicken (better than in house) chopped bbq and brisket. Baked beans, coleslaw and green beans. Not everyone knows this but only when catering, they provide delicious yeast rolls!!! As my parents' list grew, I called to confirm there would be enough for everyone.... More

Great BBQ restaurant! I stopped in while out riding this past weekend. I tried the smoked chicken and it was fabulous. I'll definitely have to go back and try the pork and beef! Service was friendly and fast. If you're in Danville, I'd recommend trying this place out!

A couple of friends and I meet here occasionally for lunch. Employees are generally friendly. Sometimes they might not say much at all but they're not rude. One guy who I believe has worked up to manager is always friendly no matter. Some of the other help seems to wish they were somewhere else! Barbecue is always good and they... More

The taste was ordinary with small portions and prices too high. I had the beef brisket and it was tender but flavor was not impressive! Wait staff did not impress and it was not a busy day.

My wife and I were visiting Danville for the weekend. The front desk person at our hotel recommended the Checkered Pig when we inquired about a good place to eat for lunch. The restaurant is in a shopping center so there I plenty of parking. The staff greeted us heartily when we entered. It is like a fast food restaurant... More

I've recently had two meals from the Danville, Virginia location consisting of a minced BBQ sandwich with slaw on the sandwich and baked beans for a side dish. The bbq portions are generous, tender, flavorful, and simply delicious. Baked beans are great. The menu has a large variety of items should satisfy all diners hungry for BBQ and various sides....

I was in town on business and being from the North wanted some great Southern BBQ. The hotel highly recommended the Checkered Pig. It was just what I wanted. The portions were homemade, large and tasty. The brisket & ribs combo was outstanding. I would definitely go back if I am ever in Danville again. Lastly, I was astounded at... More
