Ok usually, a little thin on the bone. The ribs left me wanting more. The onion ring loaf is just what your cardiologist warned you against. The service was good. It was quick and that is the major benefit of this restaurant. Many eat here. Parking is hard to find on most weekends although they have a huge parking lot.... More

The service is quick, the food is inconsistent. Ribs are usually good, sometimes dry over powered by sauce. Use to be decent servings but lately the chicken has been more like pigeon size. Last few times I visited I had to send food back because it was cold when it should have been hot, or the bread was not cooked... More

Well first off, I always check the bathrooms first before I eat anywhere. They were extremely filthy and had a sewage odor to it. Not normal at all. Since we were tired and hungry from traveling we decided to stay, we have been here before. I had an odd uncomfortable feeling about even being here from the atmosphere. When our... More

We had the Where Pigs Fly 3 meat platter special. Ribs, chicken and pulled pork and corn bread. It was sooo tasty & fabulous! The beer was also excellent! And VERY reasonable. We would return here again and again!

Dropped by on our way to firefly. Let's see we were greeted by the hostess, which in less than two minutes was arguing with her co-workers about schedule and how she was getting screwed. At least someone realized they maybe should seat us but it gets better. As my wife heads to the restroom, she over hears where is .....?... More

We were there in March of 2014 and the food/ service was terrible. I had got chicken, brisket, and pulled pork. It tasted like they put the meat in water to heat it up and there was water all on my dinner plate, they used the same bbq sauce on all the meat, no selection, plus make matters worse we... More

Had lunch with my husband and son. Bathrooms were filthy, service was horrible. My appetizer came out after my main course. One of the worst experiences. At a restaurant.

Thank you for making me aware of your experience at my restaurant. I am not sure when you visited or who your server was. There is not any excuse as to why your appetizer came out after your main course. This is totally unacceptable. If our bathrooms were filthy; I apologize; we check them continuously and I preach to my... More
