Palmetto Pig is one of the better barbecue joints in the Midlands of South Carolina. The pulled pork that is the star attraction here is prepared the right way and all three of the sauce selections are very good. (I’m especially fond of the mustard sauce, but don’t mind trying the other stuff now and then.) It’s all-you-care-to-eat, and that... More

Came here as my teammates said it was delicious. And it was pretty good! The food was hot, fresh, and cooked with TLC. All you can eat, all night. Staff felt like home. Would definitely come back again!

There is plenty of ice tea, sweet and in-sweetened. There is also banana pudding dessert. It is a very family friendly restaurant and there... More

I visited this restaurant for lunch with my husband and another couple. We all love home-style bbq with Southern sides. This restaurant has good pulled pork sandwiches with a gourmet flair. Homemade sauces. Great. Bag of potato chips. Not great. Full bar. Inside and outside dining.

Top bbq with great sauces. For the bbq, put the original sauce on and then the hot sauce for a great experience! The hash and rice is some of the best I've tried and is only found in SC. The fried chicken is the best you will ever try. The mac & cheese and other sides are great also. Save... More

A must stop whenever we are in the area. Just like Dukes of Orangeburg only closer to family in Lexington. This is the first place we want to go after traveling 600 miles from Pennsylvania. The BBQ is best with a combination of hot and original sauce placed on top of it. The fried chicken is the best you will... More
