Good BBQ, nice portions, reasonable prices

I got the BBQ potato with bacon to go. Very good. I was surprised by the pure weight of the to go tray. Careful not to drop it!

I had the Barbecue Sandwich. I know thats not fancy but the sandwich and a bag or chips were exactly what I wanted. They have plates with sides and all kinds of stuff on the menu but I went for the Barbecue.

This is about the best BBQ in the world. The thing to order is the chipped pork sandwich and a bowl of Brunswick stew. The smoked flavor is out of this world. I grew up in the little town, and live in Atlanta now, but will drive all the way down there just for this BBQ (or Dinglewood Scrambled Dog... More

Super tender bbq pork with unique mustard based sauce. It was wonderful. The place is old and outdated but you don't eat the atmosphere. Go for the BBQ and you will likely go out of your way to get back there from time to time. These are the kinds of places that have memorable BBQ in the south

Ok we decided one day to go visit Columbus Ga. We stopped here to have lunch and boy I wished we had not, the place looks like the 50's and never has been renovated, the staff though friendly looked like the belonged in a tattoo parlor instead of a food place, the ribs were over cooked, the slaw sucked had...

My first visit and I was amazed. The bite sized pork plate was tender and wonderful. The mustard based sauce was light and tasty. The beans and potato salad sides were excellent, but extra $. Plate came with slaw, light bread and lots of pickles. Slaw was different; try small bite first. Pie seemed to have come sliced and pre-packaged... More

This a hole in the wall. Not somewhere you take a date or something like that, but good food. This is the best BBQ in Columbus.

In our quest for the best BBQ in the Columbus area we searched for Smokey Pig and were happy we did. The all pork menu is simple to navigate and they have large pictures of the sliced, bite sized and chipped style. The sauce is mustard based and they sell it to go as well. (My only issue with the...

Great Bar-b-que. Our first time experiencing southern bar-b-que and we really enjoyed a new culinary adventure. We would definitely eat here again.
