Wife ate from buffet, I had rib-eye from menu and veggies from buffet. Salad very good and fresh from buffet. Veggie selection limited and average in taste. Rib-eye not bad for the price. Waitress was very accommodating in the beginning but we lost her for about 10 minutes toward the end.

This was a good restaurant, close to our hotel, with a good variety of food. Choices from the menu or a well stocked buffet.

The best bet at porkies is to get the all you can eat salad bar; it has hot and cold items as well as dessert. Some people in our group ordered off the menu and it took a little while for a quick lunch break. It's hard to beat the price and choices for the buffet and the food was... More

The coconut cake was awesome! As a matter of fact, we liked the restaurant so much, we made another trip there the next day to... More

It is your typical buffet style restaurant. Great place for the locals to hang out at lunch. Reminds me of a Golden Coral or Ryan's. Nothing special. Prices are really cheap.

We were traveling through Galax and came upon Porky's. Really didn't know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. Staff was friendly. Restaurant was clean. Buffet had plenty of choices, both hot and cold bar and ample desserts. I thought my food was good except for the chicken livers, which tasted burnt. Also ordered the fried pickles as an appetizer...

Since it looked like the biggest restaurant in town, we ate there. I don't normally do buffets but did this time.The choice of foods was extensive. The BBQ is not smoked pork and there are no ribs in the buffet. Sweet tea was typically weak but sweet and the salad bar average. None of the buffet food was real bad... More
