One of the best BBQ joints around. The smoke flavor is mouth watering. Their sauces are very flavorful. And you have to try the bannana pudding

This is a nice little place to eat great food. You can dine in or take out. The prices are very reasonable and the smell in the restaurant is great. The smoker is out back so you know you are getting the real deal.

The Smokin Pig is nestled behind the canopied gas pumps of a neighbouring service station but shouldn't be overlooked. We had only intended to gas up here heading for Florida but the smoke was so enticing we fortuitously had lunch too. This small BBQ joint serves generous portions of Georgia smoked fare. The back ribs are superb. Gently smoked, tender... More

I love a good hole in the wall bbq joint and this is definitely a whole in the wall bbq joint. It just wasn't that good. It wasn't bad and the service was friendly, but based on the reviews I expected better. We tried the pulled pork, the brisket and chicken breast along with sides of mac and cheese Brunswick... More

I may have hit it on a bad day, but the barbecued pork was dry and the sauces were weak and watery. Actually, the one labeled "HOT" was milder than the commercial one they also had on the table.

Food is great and reasonably prices. The sauces are excellent. The atmosphere is not great, but we don't really care.

A must stop for all traveling I-95. This well kept secret was actually voted in the top ten BBQ restaurants in the nation. The owner's obvious passion for great food and great service has earned my repeated visits. Prices are also family friendly.

We discovered this place a few years ago. We rarely used to go to Richmond Hill from Savannah, but that has changed. This is some of the best bbq around! The pork, brisket and chicken is all slow cook, great aroma, juicy and has that deep smoked flavor. Whether you get a platter or a sandwich with sides, you will... More

My husband and I love BBQ and have sampled it all over the country. This BBQ is just okay; side dishes are good, price is reasonable. We ordered takeout and when I opened my box, the chicken leg was so small I couldn't believe they would actually serve something like that. Six bites was all I got. My husband got... More
