This place is a bar be que aficionado's delight. Having lived in Kansas City for 10 years I can assure you I am not easy to please when it comes to this cuisine , which is one of my favorite cuisines. The sandwiches here are a great value and large amounts of meat are supplied. John's sauces include a mustard sauce which is great as are all the sauces in a wide range of hot and sweet. Family operated and they do to go. Great beer collection always something new. Rib portions are not large though sold by the pound. Wife loves the brisket chili!!

I don't think this is quite four-star bbq, but it's better than three star. The restaurant always smells, deliciously, of smoke, and the meat is pretty good, but nothing approaching the best bbq I've had. I enjoy their homemade sauces quite a bit (hot mustard, sweet or spicy bbq, carolina white sauce, etc).

Good BBQ in Marin? Why not? The brisket is fork tender, the baby back ribs are fall off the bone, the hot linknis Louisiana style (spicy), and the chicken is moist and dipped in Alabama white sauce, and it is GOOD! The mac-n-cheese was creamy and al dente. The cole slaw and potato salad was equally as good. You can get a mixed plate w/ 2 or 3 meats or by the pound. Other upcharge sides are housemade butter pickles, Parker house rolls and butter pickles. There's indoor/outdoor seating which is a plus w/ my 2 pups.

I have been dining at Pig in A Pickle practically since the day it opened. They have great tasting, high quality Barbecue. I love their ribs, which are always meaty and tender. Their pulled pork reminds me of the best the south has to offer. My personal favorite is the Brisket, smoky, tender and delicious. The only drawback is their sauce, which is not to my personal liking. It doesn't matter: you can eat all their barbecue without sauce on it. The prices are very reasonable. They usually have a nice selection of beer to go with the meat. The place is very nice to eat in, a blend of rustic, chic and always clean and neat.
