Lots of character and decent food

We went to Porkys for lunch. Watched the boats in the harbor, people going out on a dive boat, captains washing down their charter boats, pelicans and egrets vying for position. AND WE HAD YUMMY FOOD. The Mesquite burger with slaw was cooked just right and piled high with lettuce, tomato, etc. The... read more

We discovered Porky's while we riding our bikes down to the Old Seven Mile Bridge in Marathon. As we rode past, the pungent smell of fresh barbeque pervaded our senses. You know. That aroma that causes you to salivate and want to eat. We decided to try it for dinner, so we rode back to our hotel and returned by... More

I looked this restaurant up on Google and read most of the reviews which lead us to dinner at this place. The restaurant was crowded which lead us to believe that we had hit upon a good place to eat. Boy was I wrong. The service was friendly, quick and knowlegeable. The food was awful. We had a variety of... More

Since I live in Marathon half the time I know many of the restaurants. Porky's is one of those local "joints" that is frequented by all the locals. It is very rustic (if you like that and I do) and the pull pork BBQ is delicious. Highly recommend it.

This did not start out well. We arrived and ordered our drinks which came FAST. We did not have time to review the menu and make a decision on what we wanted to eat. This was a mistake because a lot of people that came in behind us got their order in as we waited and waited and waited.... Once... More

This is a true Keys experience, a drive by on any given day and you'll find the parking lot full. That's your sign that this must be the place to eat. Nothing fancy here a true Keys dining experience. Fresh food, good bbq and drink.

My partner and I took a day trip to the Keys from Miami and were looking for a place to stop for lunch that would give us a real Keys experience. I'm pleased to say that we had an excellent BBQ experience here. The atmosphere makes you feel like you're really in the keys and both the staff and locals... More

This place has character! We always make it one of our stops on every visit. Out family mantra has been "Who wants to go to Porkies?" and the response in unison is "We Do!"

We ordered take out. My brother-in-law liked his fish tacos a lot, and my sister enjoyed the coconut shrimp, but my other sister couldn't eat the barbecued ribs - they were way too smoky - tasted as if they used something like liquid smoke on them. I tasted them too and agreed with her - they were not good. We... More

Stopped in for breakfast after staying next door. Ate the breakfast burrito with scrambled egg, potato, bacon, cheese. It was huge and delicious. Great staff. Prices are very good too. They had an artist selling neat stuff
