I thought the prices were fair.....but the socks are on my feet for quality. The sauce is WAY too strong and more carolina style (vinegar like). Ribs were decent, pulled pork dry, chicken perfect. So I guess the bed thing to say at this point is that it can be hit or miss. My lunch mate got the sauce on... More

We were passing through after the usual dinner hour and wanted a quick meal. The food was delicious the staff welcoming and the prices were reasonable. Our entire family was quite pleased with their menu choices. Would definitely return and try a different menu item.

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

Order up counter facing the dining room. Clean. Wait staff a little slow.Cream of crab soup is very good. I am a SC BBQ snob and very critical on pork offerings. This is Yankee Q.
