Sometimes it's excellent and sometimes it's just average,but it's always good and the beans are always perfect and it is family owned and operated by really nice folks. And yes I will be eating there again. Be sure and try the ribs!

Solely based on the TV show, we decided to visit this restaurant and we were very pleased we did. From the food to the service (the owners themselves were there), this was a completely enjoyable experience. We had ribs, pulled pork, and a host of sides. A word of advice: come hungry and DO NOT pass on the baked beans!... More

I was a regular guest even when the were just a trailer across the street. Quality and portions have fallen over the last couple of years. I always took friends and family here in the past but no more. For BBQ Smoking Buns much better. Very disappointing.

Pork ribs and brisket were not tender and little flavor. Chicken breast looked and tasted like it had been reheated in a microwave and had no bar-b-que flavor. The 1/4 of a cup of spiced baked beans were the best part of the meal.

I'm a Mean Pig groupie for at least a decade. Have the unique (Cabot-wise) opportunity to host visitors from all over North America (and the globe). They always want to return to MP. Great owners, great sandwiches. Have to say that Arkansas BBQ is often minimized v Memphis, KC, Carolina's, or even Texas (how can beef even compare?). Once they... More

Mean Pig has several sauces to choose from, sweet all the way to blazing burning hot~ Choices of ribs, pulled pork, beef and sausages. Best value is to get the kids meal. Potato salad is fairly good, slaw is ok. A good place to feed the family.

Was in the area and had heard positive comments about the Mean Pig BBQ so thought we'd give it a try. With 4 adults and 4 kids we found something for everyone in this low key, very clean counter order and eat BBQ joint. The sweet smell of BBQ met us as we opened the door. The adults got pulled...

Known for its really hot BBQ sauce, but without that, it's just average BBQ. Smokin' Buns is better , and they have a brisket to die for. Their hours are maddening! By the time you get off work they are closing. VERY inconvenient.
