This is an easy review. Whether local or visitor, if you like barbeque, Piggyback is an automatic. Everything is typical barbeque restaurant, tables, dinnerware (really?), service, ambiance, except the food is fabulous.

I have ordered numerous times to go from Piggyback and recommended to many visitors. I loved their pulled pork and sides. Just a small Whitefish place that's a little out of the way from downtown but a great place for pork barbeque!

Piggyback is a favourite for every trip to Whitefish, my family and friends make sure to visit at least once during every trip. Great outdoor seating in the summer and a comfortable setting inside as well. The pulled pork is fantastic!

Piggyback offers everything that makes Texas BBQ so popular. Generous portions, reasonable prices and a menu full of mouth-watering options. We come all the time and have never been disappointed in anything we ordered. The service can be slow at times, but if you're patient, you wont walk away hungry. We like to start with hush puppies. My usual has... More

Had the 3 Meat platter takeout. The service was fast and friendly and the food came fairly quickly too. We pulled in on whim coming back from the ski hill because it smelled so good from the road. Had ribs, brisket and smoked chicken. The flavor did not live up to how good it smelled from outside. That said the... More

The sliced barbecue brisket was delicious, along with fried okra and mac and cheese. Iced tea to drink. They do have a nice variety of beer to drink as well. Hamburgers were delicious as well per friends that accompanied me. The portion size is very big on the platters, so, one can be shared for at least 2 people. Would... More
