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

The food was good, but nothing I would rave about. BBQ is just that BBQ, was same as anywhere. Was a little disappointed as we had heard good things.

My husband and I have been loyal customers at The Pig for the last 3 years. Yesterday was the last time we will ever step foot in that restaurant. We were seated at the bar and the owner/manager Mark was at the end of the bar with another gentleman. He was drinking heavily and having a good time with his... More

We were traveling through Pensacola and got a craving for BBQ. We did a quick google search and saw that this restaurant had a very high rating. I will be very amazed if this review makes it online because it seems as though this restaurant uses some type of a scrubber company to delete bad ratings from their reviews. The... More

I hate to write poor reviews but in this case I can't help it. I am a BBQ freak, I have a Lang 48" Deluxe which I use often. This is the worst BBQ I've ever eaten and I've eaten a lot. The meat has zero smoke flavor so I don't know why it's even called BBQ. I know they... More

Although I love the location downtown, the food is not what you would expect from a local food joint. It has a very "chain-like" feel to the restaurant. I went here just once with my girlfriend, and it was nothing rememberable. No neat dishes, just standard "Sonys BBQ" type food.
