Checkered Pig has very good food. They serve a large Bar-B-Q. Almost too large. We usually order the child's size and it is plenty for me, and I am not known to eat light.

The pork barbecue is awesome and the portions are generous, also very inexpensive. The sides are generous portions, the drinks are self-serve. You place order at counter and they bring it to your table which is so typical now.
