The food is very well cooked. Since I live close to the restaurant, I call to order my food so that I can pick it up instead of standing in line to wait for it. Even if it is great to eat in their restaurant, it is fun to take it home to avoid the crowds too.

Ordered ahead with Elizabeth and picked up the food Saturday (gameday) at 9. We had a big order and they put it together for us and everything was taken care of (food, utensils, cups, plates and sternos/sset-ups). They do a great job for us each year. Their BBQ and food is outstanding. The brisket is the best but the glazed... More

Stopped at Smokin' Pig to pick up dinner for the family last night. Everyone loved all the choices with nothing left over.

We did takeout after the grandson's football gamer, and I fed everyone as much as they could eat for $62. Every morsel of every meal was perfect. A must place for southern Bar-B-Que.

A busy place (because of the great food), so come early or just enjoy waiting on the big front porch. The brisket is great, but I can also highly recommend the pulled pork and the ribs. The pulled pork is moist and very tender and the serving is large. The ribs were very meaty and no chunks or streaks of... More

First time visit. Ordered the brisket sandwich and one side. There was enough meat on the sandwich to make two or three. The side dishes are quite tasty, especially found the okra tasty. At first prices seemed a bit expensive, but not once we saw the proportions of food! The left overs were enough for another meal. If you are... More

I love BBQ. I eat it as often as I can. Being in the Carolinas, you expect great whole hog BBQ. The Smokin' Pig does this very well. But for my money, the brisket is the way to go here. It is tender, delicious, and has great crispy bits. I have dreams about this brisket. It is absolutely cooked to... More

My wife and I were out cruising on a Saturday afternoon and decided to stop by the Smoking Pig for some barbeque as did several other people. After a short wait in an outside shelter, our number was called. We entered the restaurant and placed our order. A few minutes later we had some of the best barbeque, sweet potato... More

This is a fun place with great food. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The barbecue is some of the best you'll find anywhere. The sides (potato casserole and grits) are very good.

Thank Teresa C
