Owner has closed the business as of 02/01/2014 due to his health. This was the best BBQ place in Tuscaloosa.

On the way back from a motorcycle trip to to Louisiana a buddy and I stopped in Tuscaloosa to get some BBQ. I googled BBQ in Tuscaloosa and this was one of the places that came up and it had high ratings. So we followed the GPS to the place. It was a few miles off of I-20 and they... More

What a great place to go for some awesome BBQ, where you can sit outside, and chat with the locals. From previous reviews, I ordered the brisket, potato salad, and onion rings. Sooo tasty. My daughter ordered the pork sandwich and Mac-n-cheese. Great food! $16.00 for lunch for both of us. We were visiting Univ of Alabama from northern Illinois... More

If you are in the market for BBQ...this is where to go in T-Town. Smoked wings are awesome. Brisket is fantastic. It's a little pricey but worth it. Not much to look at...it really is a shack.

I have been back in Taylorville for a few months now. This is the ONLY place around I will patronize if it is open. Nothing else compares. Pork is some of the best I have ever had, consistently too. Sauce is awesome. Potato salad is wickedly good. Do yourself a favor and pick up a pound of pork and pint... More

The place was extremely busy on memorial day, but it was worth the wait. Ribs, pulled port, baked beans, and potato salad. The potato salad was a pleasant surprise. Loaded with sour cream...a special treat. Ribs we heavy and great. I'm a big smoked meat fan and usually have to smoke it myself to get it the way I like... More

Found this restaurant through TA and was pleased. All outdoor seating for take away or dine-in, the Pigg Shack was a great way to grab lunch near the Shelton State campus. Good prices. Simple, but pleasant. Colleague had pulled pork, potato salad, broccoli salad and I had small ribs portion, potato salad, and cole slaw. Pulled pork was great, but... More

Old fashion low and slow cooked pulled pork, pork ribs, chicken, and brisket. Good selection of sides, the home made mac and cheese is very good. Outside picnic table seating is available . NO inside seating. Check for closing time by phone, I think it is 7:00 pm.
