BBQ, Bergers, slaw. Beans & the friendly atmosphere make it worth the two 45 minutes trip I make to the Hickory Pig every week .

I'm about to make the 45 minute drive to the Hickory Pig, since it's 10 minutes north of my Church , late Wednesday afternoon is a good time for me.

Stopped here on our way back from Helen. Little shack type place. But really good food. Locals place. Friendly staff. They cook in small batches so get here early ! Biscuit barn next door - we missed getting a biscuit there .. But real nice folks!

Some of the Best BBQ I've ever eaten, and I've tried BBQ all over the SE, grew up eating at Harolds BBQ in Atlanta, and Harolds used to b considered the best but The Hickory Pig is better, Love the stew also, and the greens, are the best, never had any room left for the slaw so can't comment on...

I had some business near Gainesville, Ga. I am always seeking good bbq. After reading reviews on this place, I thought I would give it a try. I have always said the worse bbq I ever had was still good. Well this place broke me of saying that. The pork was over cooked to the point of being mushy, it... More

Decided to make this a half-way stop on the way home with a group of friends. I am always on the lookout for 'hole-in-the-wall' establishments that appear to have some potential. The place is pretty small and the parking is somewhat haphazard, but we were instantly greeting upon entry with friendly conversation and hospitality. The menu is small (as it... More

After reading reviews, I decided to give this place a try- I shouldn't have. First, it's extremely expensive. 10 dollars for two very small sides and a measly helping of meat. Drink is not included for that price! Second, if you get your food to go, everything is tossed into one plate. Including the Brunswick stew! I did not know... More

My favorite BBQ place - Phil the owner is an enjoyable guy to spend time with. Small building, only 3 tables - so you meet some new people. 40 minutes from my home & 15 minutes from my office. I know Phil does a lot of catering & you can bet it's good. I've been there when people have driven... More
