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

For something different, we decided to try Where Pigs Fly. It was delicious, the restaurant was very clean, and the service was excellent. Server was very friendly and attentive. We had the BBQ sandwich...tasty, tender...could have had more smoke flavor. Potato salad was very flavorful as well as baked apples. Would definitely go there again if in the area!

Broccoli Salad and sweet potato fries. My friend got French fries and again Awesome. Cornbread was very moist and sweet,... More

Great pulled pork, ribs and more. Good family atmosphere. Good service, and a 'fun' theme with pigs etc decorations.

This place was recommended by a couple friends so my wife and I were looking forward to checking it out. Unfortunately, the service was average at best, the food was poor and the atmosphere was really dated and dirty.
