I receive my plate of short ribs and brisket and I'm disappointed at the portion size. I chose the fatty brisket aside from the lean brisket and decided to start there. Omfg, $17.95 for this plate is worth it. Still disappointed at the portion size...More

The food at Smoking Pig BBQ Company is good. Meat (spare ribs and chicken) was tender and not overly dry. The BBQ sauce was dry but not like what we had experienced in Memphis.

We are a very casual BBQ "joint" in the traditional sense. The focus is on the food. Slow smoked meats, homemade sides, rubs, sauces and desserts. Friendly service, at home feel. Excellent beer and wine lists (no kidding). Genuine Southern BBQ. Everything made in-house. Our mission is your delight. We Cater too! 25 to 5000 people.
