Very Good Snowbird Stop

We were driving from Charlotte NC to St. Augustine and needed a place halfway for lunch and a break. The Smoking Pig is in Richmond Hill which fit the bill as well as being the #1 rated restaurant in the city. It is in a strip mall complex beside a gas station which was handy for us after we... read more

We stopped here on the way to Florida as it was right off I-95. I had the spare rib plate. The ribs were somewhat unappetizing to look at. They were oddly cut and had bone chips that made them difficult to eat. They also looked left over. They tasted okay but I ended up not finishing the 3rd rib. The... More

I love the brisket! It is not in the best location, but it is off I-95 which is good for travelers coming from Florida and want some good BBQ to continue on their travel. Be sure to have an additional driver because you may get sleepy after eating such good food.

This place is a must try! My husband & I are sceptic's when it comes to trying new barbecue places(because we've found out that not everyone knows how to barbecue), & even though this one looks a bit sketchy from the outside, the food was amazing! The pork was so tender it practically melts in your mouth. Just goes to... More

My wife and I were travelling back from south Florida on I 95 and looking for a lunch stop different from chain fast food, when we saw a bill board for the Smoking Pig. punched it into our phone for directions and took us straight there. Very close to the Interstate in a convenience store/gas station small plaza. Excellent BBQ... More

I'll admit, when we saw that it was attached to a gas station, I was a littler leery but now we go there regularly. We enjoy taking out or staying in to dine at the Smokin Pig because the food is great, the restaurant is family-friendly and they have a Military discount.

We go to smokin pig about twice a month. We usually get their pulled pork. The pulled pork is excellent. We get the spicy vinegar sauce. We have also had their ribs which are also good. The only thing I do not love is the coleslaw. But hey, you cant please everybody. I highly recommend that you try it. You... More

Recommended to us by the staff at the hotel we were staying overnight in Richmond Hill. The place is small and easy to miss but seems to be a local hangout. Unfortunately, we arrived just before closing and they were out of pulled pork (my favorite) so "settled" for brisket and smoked chicken. Both were excellent. It's clear that the... More

Limited parking, they share the same small lot with two other shops and a gas station, not many spaces. Even though the DOT requires places that have motorist services signs to have public restrooms, they had a sign taped to the door saying restrooms for customers only, as do the other places that share that lot. Dingy atmosphere. I had... More
