across the viaduct from Whitefish, small inside and plenty of outside seating!

I had the Cuban (ham, pulled pork, swiss cheese and sauce). we heard the ribs are not so good, but everything we had was VERY good, do not get the ribs!

Packed at dinner time, (does not take reservations) - so after several unsuccessful tries, we settled for lunch!! Do NOT miss this restaurant. A tiny interior that seats perhaps twenty people - the majority of customers eat OUTDOORS on picnic benches! Waitress service - absolutely the BEST brisket and pulled pork...

The rack of Ribs were very fatty. We left over most of them. It was not cheap. We should have eaten at our hotel.

The BBQ was great!! My brisket sandwich was full of flavor and very tender. The coleslaw was unique but also very tasty. Atmosphere is very casual, with seating inside and outside. We ate outside and couldn't really enjoy our meal to the fullest due to the large amount of wasps that converge on you as soon as your food is... More

My husband and I are on our motorcycles staying in Whitefish for the night. As usual, we search the local restaurant list, looking for a good meal and cold beer. We saw Piggyback BBQ listed and decided to risk it (we are from Alabama and are pulled pork snobs!). We loved the place! Atmosphere is great, you can eat indoor... More

BBQ was excellent. Service was terrible! Brisket was extremely tender. Only one waitress seemed to know what she was doing. Order was wrong. When we complained we were not charged but treated rudely. GET TAKEOUT!

I would recommend this place. It had very large portions and the food was very tasty.The atmosphere was very casual and relaxed. We ate there mid afternoon and it looked like they had a stage outside for some live music.

I had read good reviews for this little restaurant so thought we would try it. The barbeque was good and the serving was huge. The baked beans were good, but the slaw was bad....strange looking and strange tasting. They have outdoor and indoor seating and even were having live entertainment later in the evening. Overall, the value was good and... More

I cannot believe the service at this place! AWFUL!!! We waited to seated for 10 min when we only saw 3 tables outside that had customers and 3 more inside. THEN we waited even longer to have someone take our drink order. Finally we ordered- but it took 1 hour and 10 min to get our food which by that... More

I have no idea why the wait can be so very long. After all, you can't MAKE barbecued meats when people order them. Fortunately I waited leaa than 30 minutes, but I heard my very nice waitress tell later comers that it could be 60-90 minutes before they would get their food. My briscuit sandwich was outstanding. The cole slaw... More
