Comfort food on a rainy day

I am from the south but happened to be in Dover for a big country concert. The forecast was gloomy so we decided to give some non-southern bbq a try. We had combo meals and the ribs were the best choice in the combo - they fell of the bone and had good flavor. Not my favorite sauce (and there... read more

My family and I love this restaurant. We come here for any special occasion. Their ribs are excellent, their chicken is juicy, and their salads are the best I've ever had! When my fiance and I started planning our wedding, it was only natural that we ask Where Pigs Fly to cater it. Kelly and Donna were excellent to work... More

The chicken was good. The pulled pork was not good at all, just tasted kind of gamey, no smoked or bbq flavor to it. The ribs were very tender and moist but didn't taste fresh or authentic. Service was pretty slow even tho they weren't busy.. Nice people, I feel bad writing a bad review but I'm just being honest..

When my family and I arrived, there were only 5 other parties seated. Our server Ivori was very slow in attending to us. We got our drinks directly, but had to remind her that I also had ordered a beer when I received my salad. We were served cornbread which was alright, but sweet and covered with some sort of...
