I have been to Where Pigs Fly several times. This time it was their pulled pig sandwich with coleslaw on top with baked beans for the side. The sandwich was very good and the service was excellent. I have also had their ribs which were also very good. Obviously Where Pigs Fly is a place I haven't been spending enough... More

Of course the pulled pork is great. But, ask for the sauce "on the side" so that the pork tastes more like Carolina BBQ. The combo with chicken, pork & ribs is great. Sides are excellent. Warm friendly wait staff.

Decorations were nice, but that is about it. Bathroom was in shambles.(Missing a stand up john that was on the wall. hand dryer didn't work) Ordered the pulled pork and tried it without the sauce first and it tasted like bad Turkey. Sauce overpowered the meat. And small portions for meal and drinks. The fireplace was nice on a cold... More

Have been going to this restaurant for years and it continues to be excellent! Just had them cater a Birthday event at the Dover AFB Museum and it was outstanding! Dynamite food, service, support, and recommendations -- All comments way above average! Highly recommend them for any catering event! Excellent value!
