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 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.

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!!!

Low key joint with great food. We loved our burger and BLT and the sweet potato fries! Nice selection of local beer and decent selection of wine.

it's located just over the viaduct from the city center...a short walk if on foot. The atmosphere is a perfect match for a BBQ restaurant. The selling point, BBQ ribs, however, were a big disappointment as they appeared great but were very tough. Except for the baked beans, the sides were mediocre. Surely it was just an off night.
