We were traveling through SC and found Little Pigs. It appeared to be a small whole in the wall buffet but we were hungry and up for anything. We were so glad that we tried it! Everyone from town was in visiting each other so it has that small local feel and the food was awesome! We tried most everything... More

My husband wanted BBQ, and had read great things about this place. I just don't really like buffets, so we thought we would go and order, but when we got there, everyone got the buffet, so we went this that. There was quite a bit of food, my very picky eating husband even liked the collard greens (never had them... More

After reading the reviews in TripAdvisor we decided to give this restaurant a try. Its an excellent value. Huge selection of food. If you can't find something you like then you must be a vegan. Lots of side dishes. The barbecue comes in mustard, tomato base, or vinegar. I preferred the mustard. Vinegar was much too subtle. There were lots... More

Returning from short vacation trip to the beach, we were a little hungry and didn't want to wait til Greenville, decided to look on TA for a suggestion and using the SmartPhone locator and our GPS within 5 minutes we were parking (in the packed parking lot, it was high noon), and making our way to the door. At that... More

Recommended by a local, we gave little pigs bbq a try. Wow! We had pulled in a bigger bbq chain and were about to walk in when we realized we could not smell the smoke..not a good sign. Pulled into little pig, and wow!! Smelling that sweet smoke, then walk in and see the buffet before you. Spotlessly clean, wonderful... More

We went here because we wanted some original barbecue and this place also offered some fond memories for my husband's while he was in the military. The atmosphere had a real down home, fun feel. Most of the sides I tried were very good especially the hushpuppies & banana pudding. The disappointment for me came with the meat. For me,... More

This place has never disappointed me! Always good food and plenty of it. The only problem you may have is getting a table because it is always packed! It may say barbeque (which is delicious) but they also have many other things on the buffet line which will make you happy including other meats and vegetables and desserts. Try it... More

We are a big bbq family. So far little pigs has been the best bbq that we have been able to get our mouths on. It's mainly because they have such a large variety to choose from. I love the chicken gizzards, greens, and cabbage. The best part about it is that it's only 10$ a person. We come here... More

the biggest problem with eating at this place is eating too much...the pulled pork offers several sauces and all are good. Fried chicken is good...purely relaxed and casual type place. I like to go get the pulled pork and cole slaw as a take out, too.
