Ribs are very good as well as the BBQ. Homade banana pudding is delicious. Will be eating there again tomorrow night. October 2016. Eat here each time we come to Marntinvulle.

The food isn't quite as good as it used to be, but Pigs serves large portions of excellent BBQ and has good additional offerings. The service is fine, and the place is honest and unpretentious.

Driving through Virginia and found this great BBQ joint on TripAdvisor. Hit the spot! I'm from St. Louis so I know BBQ. We had the champion platter so we could have a variety of meats and ribs....the hush puppies came with that and they were the best I've ever had!

We have visited Pigs R Us many times over the years. I will say the service level and wait staff has definitely improved over the years. The BBQ is the best in town and they keep a variety of house sauces on the table so you can choose what you like. I tried BBQ nachos supreme or the first time... More

Stop in mid afternoon for bar b q chicken. Server was very friendly and fast service. The chicken and sides were not hot enough and was dried out. Must have been setting a while. Tea was good.

Pigs R Us, now known as The Checkered Pig, has the best barbeque, ribs, and sides in Virginia, They have been featured on the Food Chanel and have won many awards! You can't go wrong. It's all good!

Went on a Sunday.....CLOSED! Made it the next day, got a half slab with sauce on the side. All I can sat is, I like ribs without sauce, and these were excellent! I'm mad, I should have gotten one of those T shirts!

A side trip off of the Blue Ridge parkway to see the speedway and enjoy local favors. Very friendly service. The brisket was great. I even enjoyed it more than the ribs. Reasonably priced.
