Great BBQ

Was hesitant as we heard mixed reviews. Our food was great! We ordered a platter with pulled pork and beef brisket, and added 1/4 rack of ribs and we shared it, and it was still almost too much. It was all delicious, got two sides with it and cornbread. We got baked beans and coleslaw. The cole... read more

I hate to be critical, but this was NOT good barbecue. The ribs we ordered, one of us had dry rub and the other had the wet rub, but both were way too dry and were difficult to eat off the bone. The sides on the other hand were tremendous. The corn bread was really delicious. The mac and cheese... More

We ordered a full rack of ribs and a side chicken wings, everything was parched. These guys simply do not know how to cook (or BBQ). Dry rub is something you rub into the meat prior to cooking, not pour onto the meat after you have re-heated it or tossed it into the fryer for the third time. I can... More

I have been here several times and am met with a great plate of food and casual atmosphere that i enjoy. It is an easy place to find just over the viaduct on the north side of the tracks.

We are from Texas, so we KNOW good barbeque. We liked this place so much, we went twice in 5 days. Loved the ribs and the brisket. A couple of us had the fajita salad and it was good, too.

Decided to try the Piggy Back Barbeque on a whim without any recommendations. Glad we did. I ordered the turkey sandwich and my husband got the hamburger with brisket mixed in with the beef. We both enjoyed. Small restaurant that makes it easy to socialize with staff and other customers. Friendly, clean and good food.

Found this restaurant on restaurant.com. It was a quaint little place. Tried the pork sandwich and brisket chili. The meat was so flavorful and tender. Great sandwich. Also the ribs and fries. Ribs were okay. Nice flavor but a little too smokey tasting. The fries were small rounds - really great. I really liked the brisket chili too. Nice broth... More

Good food, especially the cornbread. Big portions, could probably share they are so big. Ribs were nice and tender, little greasy but that's sometimes ribs. Great flavour. Loved the casual atmosphere.

Love the food here. It's changed a bit, servers to the table and a much larger menu. Food is always great, huge portions. But I do miss the $1 Pabst Blue Ribbon!!!
