Little Pigs used to be my favorite BBQ Restaurant. I visited regularly for lunch when I was working full time, even had farewell's for co-workers there. Great price and huge selection still are true. Unfortunately the food taste was just OK. The whole roasted pig had been under the warmer so long, pork on top was dried out, but if... More

On our way down to Kiawah, SC our AAA agent mentioned this hidden gem so we tried it and OMG:) Off the beaten path some in an industrial area but worth seeking it out! It's buffet style and southern to the core! everything we tried had flavor and love cooked into it! From the greens (which were sweet and tender)... More

I dont know how they do it for $8.41 a person which includes your drink!! but it was well worth it! Full BBQ buffet with... More

Little Pigs was recommended to us by a couple of folks at the U-Haul place a couple of miles away. The Best Barbecue in South Carolina, they said. That's saying a lot--SC has a pretty good BBQ tradition. But they were completely right--the food is a winner. (And the parking lot is *packed*.) BTW, they also told us that we... More

This is a great place to eat BBQ. I've always had a good experience at this restaurant. We also use them to cater our high school band banquet every year.

Having traveled all over the state, this place is hands down the best barbecue you can find. A real down home feel, don't miss the banana pudding.

The best items to me were their Mac & Cheese and the fried fish. Those two items alone would make me visit again. The rest of the food was just okay. But the price alone is better than any place of its type that I've visited. However, it seemed that a lot of the items were overly salted, which caused... More
