First of all, the outside of the building is great. When you walk through the doors, you walk directly to the window and order your food. Then you pick wherever you want to sit. They have two rooms, both with TVs. They bring your food to your table and keep your glasses full. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. Check... More

Have always gotten great food. In my opinion it is the best barbecue and ribs anywhere in the county. Makes me hungry thinking about it.

I am in Jackson for a writers conference twice a year. It doesn't have a great selection of restaurants, so we are willing to drive the 15-20 miles to this rural BBQ place, which has outstanding food in a nice environment. Usually they have chicken on Sunday, but they were sold out by 6:30 or 7 when we got there.... More

We stopped at the Blind Pig while we were in Jackson. My wife and I shared the ribs. I thought that everything was excellent. They did, however, forget the bread.

I will dive 30 min to eat at the Blind Pig. They have pulled pork, beef brisket and ribs. Hot dogs for finicky little ones. Sides are homemade potato chips (thick cut and fried), Brunswick stew and slaw. I usually bring a small side salad because they do not serve which doesn't bother the management. I wish they had salads... More

From the time we pulled up in the parking lot, I really liked the place. However, you have to back it up with the food. Well, The Blind Pig did just that. My wife and I ordered ribs, pulled pork, baked beans, Brunswick Stew, Cole slaw and Home fries. All of it was great. The ribs are Smokey and tender,... More

Absolutely the best BBQ I've had since moving to Georgia 22 years ago! I eat here an average of once a week and sometimes buy pulled pork by the pound and have sandwiches for lunch all week. I don't care for Brunswick stew but my wife loves it and says it's the best she has ever had. On Fathers day... More

Nice decor, food was excellent just a little high dollar. setting is country wide menu and Brunswick stew is off the chain. Didn't like ordering at window, seat your self and up to getyour own food.

A friend mentioned this place to us, and since we love BBQ we decided to take a little drive to try it out for ourselves. It was a beautiful summer day, so the drive of about a half hour, was fine. We got there before noon and were greeted with true southern warmth. After ordering, we found a seat and... More
