We tried Piggyback January 4. It was quiet most of the holiday travelers had left. The service was good. I had pulled pork and brisket platter. The pulled pork was good the brisket was a bit tough but edible. I enjoyed the beans and potato salad as my sides. Our service was good and I would return to try more... More

Come hungry! Lots of great food slow cooked and smoked inhouse. The porkbelly alone is worth the stop. Carnivores rejoice

I'm from CA and like most of you are thinking, what does a California boy know about BBQ. Well, the truth is, in all of my travels I'm always on the look out for great barbecue. From the west coast to the mid west leading me to the east coast. Even as far as Mexico and South East Asia. I'm... More

Great authentic bbq made from local ingredients. It is a small local joint that is worth a stop. Of course I got the pulled pork (I get pulled pork any chance I get)! The pulled pork sandwich was topped with their Mountain Sauce. It was a perfect mix of smokey and tangy. Now, I am not sure what is in... More

We stopped by on a Sunday night before close and were going to do takeout but the friendly waitress invited us to stay. My girlfriend had the turkey club, while not usually an amazing sandwich anywhere this one was loaded with delicious turkey and perfectly melted cheese (no one ever melts the cheese on a club! It's excellent) and I... More

A little bit of the Deep South and a bit of Cajun stylin' make this a terrific, easygoing place to relax and eat. Lots of choices and the portions are large. You aren't going to walk out feeling hungry. Nice beer selection for the beer snob. If it's pleasant, sit outside and enjoy this small corner of Montana's premier resort... More

Wow, wished we had checked this place out earlier. Great selection of food. Mostly BBQ and deep fried. First time having cat fish (very good after you get past the whiskers - just kidding). Nachos with pulled pork easily is a meal in its self. We ordered a little of everything and shared. Remember their portions are large - so... More

Not much to look at and service was pretty slow but the food was good and the price reasonable . Was visiting whitefish for just one night or would have gone back for a second meal.

Piggyback BBQ came highly recommended by several local people. How right they were. Will was awesome to deal with. Went above and beyond our expectations. Everyone left the party well fed with delicious BBQ'd ribs, pulled pork, baked beans,slaw and cornbread. All we had to do is line up with our plates. Refills were encouraged. Thanks again Will! You made... More

Very casual place - everything was good. We had several appetizers - the buffalo chips, fried pickles and the nachos, as well as bbq sandwiches. Good thing we went for a long hike before we ate - this place is not good for your waistline!
