Some real great home cooked food. Love the laid back feeling. Our family was all able to find food they liked. It is simple, friendly and tasty.

We ordered bar-b-que, macaroni & cheese and cole slaw and it was delicious. This place has a great Buffett and it's all good. Easy to get in and out of. Great for big appetites and various palettes.

Visited with friends and was really impressed! For $11 got full Buffett and drinks. A great selection of food and full of locals (seemed like a good sign!). Food was amazing! Will be visiting again next time I'm in Columbia!

If you leave here hungry it is your own damn fault. Little Pigs is and has always been a great place to go for BBQ. From Mr. Britton to the McGee family you can count on a good lunch or dinner experience.

It's been a while since we have ate here. We have been here a few times but the line was out the door the past few time we came. The staff is always cleaning and talking with the customer. The owner is a great guy plus it's family owned.They put their heart and soul into their foods. If you want... More

The environment was nice. Nice and friendly staff. The pork behind the desert bar was really great. The chocolate delight is a must try.
