I wanted BBQ and had time to kill while on other side of town, so decided to try. As I drove up around 4:30p, I wondered if place was even open. Upon driving in, I saw the open sign on the side. I went to and waited. There were a few people in front of me, and only seemed to... More

I was there for a weekday lunch ordered beef brisket and sides of greenbeans and fried okra. The beef was not brisket as I know brisket. More like a smoked top round that was then sliced and grilled before plated. Sides were not great either. I assume their traditional pork BBQ is better otherwise the doors would be closed by... More

This building was originally built as a Sonic Drive-In, and that's why the restrooms are outside around back. It's really scary if you need to use the restrooms because of their location. As we drove away recently, I noticed the doors to the restroom standing open and the door were very heavily weathered by the elements. I can't imagine taking... More

In fact they were so good we stopped by on our way out and ordered a full slab of ribs to take home. Their ribs... More

We had Pig Pickin's cater our daughter's wedding and they did a great job! We had an outdoor wedding and reception with barbecue, corn on the cob, slaw, rolls, sweet tea and lemonade. The food was great and perfect for a country wedding. It rained and our tent leaked but the Pig Pickin's staff jumped right in and helped wipe... More

Stopped by for lunch this week. I had the sliced BBQ pork sandwich and it was excellent. It's a big serving and was perfectly cooked. Great service from the friendly staff too. I'll be back soon!

This is NOT a 5 star, linen table cloth restaurant - it is the appropriate atmosphere for a bbq place. I read mixed reviews and decided to try it anyway, and am very glad I did. The people that don't like it must only like the vinegar based NC BBQ... as the Racks of ribs we had were as good... More
