Good BBQ in historic district

We stopped for lunch and both had the brisket sandwich. The menu said "thinly sliced" brisket but it was more like chunks of brisket. It was tender and flavorful. You can order it on a bun or Texas toast. However the Texas toast was more like a thick slice of bread without much flavor. We tried the... read more

I have to admit that my husband and I always order the same menu item. But since it's a three meat platter and we've tried all the sides that go with it, it's pretty representative of what they do here. We split one platter between us because the portion sizes are very large. If you go in during the holiday... More

Located only a block from the events at Seville Square, we had walked by The Happy Pig many times, but had never tried it until we visited during a multi-restaurant "tasting tour" some months ago. We shoulda come sooner. They do smoked meat right; portions are bigger than necessary, and flavors are right on. this Thursday night, around 8 pm,... More

We have stopped here even when not going to Pensacola!!! The Brunswick Stew is a meal in itself with hot corn muffin on the side. Pulled pork, Brisket and all the sides. Never had a bad experience... service is good and ample street parking, AND you can sit outside with your Dog and have lunch, they even supply the Dog... More

We r locals... This is about our 6th time here and unfortunately it was the first time we were disappointed. Food quality has gone down, seems like they are cutting costs on the menu..cheap Mac n Cheese. Need experienced cooks back in kitchen. Also need to focus back on real BBQ. Train staff better...stop having servers upsell items. He came... More

I was in the mood for some bbq and I wanted to try somewhere different so I decided to try this place out. I had the brisket wrap and it had no flavor at all. I also had some broccoli slaw and that tasted great. The staff was very friendly and the atmosphere is nice. I will go back again... More

When we get the hankering for some good pulled pork, The Happy Pig is where we like to go. Great food, prices, and friendly staff.

We showed up with a party of 10 on Saturday night and were about the only people in this place. The waitress didn’t seem all that pleased to see us, felt a bit like we were putting her out. The food was good. I am not a BBQ aficionado, but the meat and sides were tasty. I ordered the pulled... More
