Great location

Found this cute little lunch box in the historical district on a rainy day. At 2pm we were the only 4 in the restaurant. The staff was thin but good service. The food was very good. Would stop by again in in the area.

This is the first review I've written on Tripadvisor. The reason I'm writing this one is to basically warn people about this place. On July 4, 2015 Me and my family went there for lunch. The restaurant itself was clean and the atmosphere was nice.But if you have a taste for bbq that taste will not be satisfied here.I've eaten... More

I ordered the pulled pork dinner with extra texas toast. I chose macaroni and cheese & potato salad. They were both a disaster and the texas toast was just wheat bread with no butter or garlic or anything whatsoever. I made myself a sandwich with the pulled pork and plain bread. Not worth it. I am use to Mojo's BBQ... More

Four friends vacationing in the area, stopped in for lunch on a weekday. The restaurant has a nice decor and we were promptly seated. We each ordered pulled pork and 2 sides. Everything was served hot and delicious. Their special mayo BBQ sauce is awesome and now I wish I had purchased some to bring home. The pork was served... More

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 baked beans for... 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
