Tried the pulled pork sandwich, the ribs & the corn fritters. All were very good & generous in size. The only item which wasn't a homerun for me were the bbq beans. (okay but not fantastic) We would definitely go back again.

Brisket was fantastic. Corn fritters were the best I have ever had. Beer selection is huge. Service was great. The whole family was very pleased with orders and that hardly ever happens.

Easy to find, and about the only BBQ place in Coronado, Lil' Piggy's is casual, easy and fast. About 1 minute from the ferry landing pier (walking slowly!), this is an easy stop on a visit to Coronado

Food was excellent. Be careful with the Jalapeño poppers---very hot!! Prices were very reasonable and the service was good. Excellent ribs and pulled pork.
