Yummy!

We made a late dinner stop here on a road trip. The food was pretty good and the decor was fun for my 4 year old...lots of pigs around.

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...

Great concept and atmosphere, and petty good BBQ, but service was slow and there was a mistake in our order when we stopped in for an early dinner (4:00 pm). There was a huge group in the main room and staff were stretched too thin, The mistake with my partner's meal was promptly corrected, but service overall was slow and... More

If this is the best bbq in Delaware, I need to move there and open a bbq joint. Gave it a second try after a first disappointing experience, and there was no improvement the second time around. Sauce is bland and poured over the meat instead of cooked into it. The meat comes pre-sauced, and there is not even a... More

Ordered 1/2 rack ribs, memphis fries and skillet baked beans. I ordered this to go. First off they were very friendly and very helpful. I never had memphis fries before so they brought me out one to try. It was good. It was a good sized portion. They also gave me a roll. It was very large and came with... More
