Don't judge this restaurant by the outside! When we entered, we were a bit confused if it was a take out restaurant or a sit down restaurant by the set up when you walk in! We were soon greeted and told we could pick where we would like to sit. We were surprised to see how big it was, several... read more

Porky's has an open grill that dominates the center of part of the restaurant. Patrons can use the grill to cook their own steaks or for a couple of dollars more,they will cook it for you. Wonderful steak selections from which to choose, with a salad bar and other fresh sides along with your favorite beverages. My favorite from the... More

The restaurant has plenty of open tables & was recommended by a local. Brisket sandwich was just okay, fries were tasty but for the wait food was not hot at all. Unfortunately even if it was a bad night for wait staff or the kitchen, we won't be making a special stop here to or from our destination.

I have eaten at porkys many times I have even reviewed it once but I finally got to eat a steak from here . Probably one of the best T Bones I have ever tasted. One of the coolest parts about it is you get to cook your own steak over a fire pit if you want to or you... More

only about two minutes from the interstate, Porky's is a great place for a BBQ. Serving does not disappoint. Just get the jumbo sandwich and you will not regret it. Friendly and down home place. Don't forget it.

The food here is always good. My favorite is the chicken finger sandwich with bacon, lettuce, tomato and cheese. Also the thick sliced fried baloney sandwich is awesome. But everything is good. Always stop for lunch when I have time.

A hidden local jewel. I was looking for a great steak and found it!! So Juicy and delicious. The ribs are fabulous and fall off the bone. They have a bar on one end and offer a cook your own steak if you like. You can pick your thick steak and grill it on a huge indoor grill as you... More

A little mom and pop place. Looked a little rough outside, but was really nice and clean inside. Large portions, super friendly. Recommended!

We saw the good reviews and decided to stop by for dinner. Wife and I were the only ones there in this small, family owned place. We each had rib platter with two sides. Ribs were large pork ribs but were very tender. They had a dry rub bur were served with a homemade BBQ sauce that was delicious. Fried... More
