Very Good BBQ

Our family reunion group that was in Whitefish for one week in June managed to eat at the Piggyback Barbeque Restaurant three different times, either all together or in smaller groups. The reviews shared between us were mixed but over all the majority of us really liked the restaurant. A good... read more

We went in yesterday morning for breakfast, the cook seemed to have an attitude, the waitress was very nice, we ordered and didn't want bacon or sausage on the burrito and my husband over heard him say something to the effect that we'll get what he makes. People don't want bacon for various reasons mine is colon cancer, I chose... More

Great location, food and casual atmosphere is found in this little Whitefish BBQ gem. Awesome place to wind down after a good hike in GNP. Live entertainment just added to the charm.

We came to Piggyback at the end of a long day of hiking and were thinking that BBQ would hit the spot. We came pretty late and they were a little behind when we arrived. We ended up waiting over an hour for our meal, which was frustrating. The food was only so-so, but it certainly was filling. I had... More

We ordered a brisket sandwich and a dozen hush puppies to go. My son loved the sandwich, saying it was better than Famous Dave's, which we frequent and enjoy. The hush puppies were terrific also. The food was ready when promised and service was friendly and prompt. Highly recommend - we will be back.

We arrived past the rush hour for dinner so there was no excuse for the bad, surly service and the length of time it took to get our food. There were 8 of us so we ordered drinks, apps and the huge family platter of BBQ. I understand that the gratuity is included for large parties, but that doesn't excuse... More

We enjoyed this place. Indoor dining area was very hot, so we chose to eat outside. We shared one meal and both of us got more than enough to eat. The brisket and smoked sausage were very good. The potato salad was delicious! Fried okra was just ok. Would visit again when we are back in the area.

We enjoyed the food as takeout but the atmosphere of the outside eating area made me want to stay. Lots of food. We shared two meals with 3 people. Ribs were really good. Brisket seemed a little dry. Very friendly waitress/hostess.
