I ordered the Where Pig’s Fly (Triple) combo platter to try there ribs, pulled pork and chicken. The taste and quality may have been impacted due to the fact that it was a very slow night in their restaurant, but this was clearly average to below average BBQ... ribs were small and dry, chicken had a burnt smoked flavor and...

The food was great, the service was excellent, and it's located just off of Rt. 13. Even if you aren't a big pig eater, there's plenty of other choices here to have a great meal. We had a great time and my wife is already looking forward to going back.

Our wrestling team held their annual end of season banquet and we had it catered by Where Pigs Fly. Kelly Devine was amazing to work with and everything was perfect. Donna and staff were professional and the food was outstanding. I highly recommend having them cater any event. Large or small, they can do it all. More than enough food... More

Regardless of other BBQ restaurants moving into town, Pigs Fly is still our #1 choice for BBQ. Their brocolli salad is always fresh and sweet, the meats are always moist and juicy-not like some other restaurants in Dover where the BBQ is dryer than a leather shoes. The night we visited they gave us fresh bread right out of the... More

We were only one of two occupied table this evening, arriving about 7:00pm for dinner. Our server was a lovely young lady, who was very patient and helpful with our orders. My son ordered the Smoked Pulled Beef Brisket Platter, whilst both my wife and I went for a bowl of creamy crab soup each, followed by the St.Louis Rib... More

This was a catered lunch at our church, serving the same food that you get at the restaurant. The restaurant owner was a pleasure to work with, her staff was courteous and the food was delicious. Would have them cater again. Eating at the restaurant gives the same result. Best broccoli salad ever!!!

Stopped for a quick lunch...really enjoyed the '1/2 Chicken w/2 Sides' (mine were a fresh, large side salad & big baked sweet potato, plus yummy corn bread)... all promptly served by friendly, helpful server 'Calli'. A positive experience in fun, old-style BBQ 'joint' among many locals who appreciate over 20 years of experience. Thanks, ...Pigs Fly 'team' ;-)
