Great choice for someone hungry

The food is good, price is fair and the buffet selections are extremely varied and plenty of choices. Can't go wrong, especially if you like fried chicken and barbeque pork (pulled or shoulder).

We stopped at this restaurant on a road trip down to Florida. It's right off the highway and it was amazing! The prices are unbeatable (lunch was less than $10 per adult and somewhere around $5 for children 12 and under and dinner was about $10 and $6). Includes all you can eat pork BBQ (lots of items to choose... More

The food is served buffet style. Very reasonably priced southern cuisine. Home cooked quality ingredients. There are plenty of delicious sides: Green Beans, collards, BBQ beans, rice, dirty rice, mashed potatoes, hash gravy, cole slaw, potato salad, candied yams, macaroni & cheese, and sweet corn. The collard greens were amazing.

This is an all you can eat restaurant and most of the patrons take that to heart. The BBQ was solid, but nothing to rave about. There were a huge amount of choices of southern comfort food- mac and cheese, fried okra, catfish, etc, but nothing I tried was anything special. Also, the noise was deafening. I didn't expect a...

There is a large variety on the buffet something for every one. You have BBQ with all of the trimmings, plus some of the best home cooking in Columbia. This is a very family oriented restaurant. Once you visit, you will return!!!

Reviews are wonderful for some reason and I decided to try it out again. Not at all what I expected. Waitress never acknowledged us upon arrival at the table, we had to put away the trays, no refill on beverages, not sure if they were experiencing a malfunction with the buffet or not, food was not comfortably heated as it...

I have eaten BBQUE at almost every BBQUE Restaurant in South Carolina and find Little Pigs to be the best in South Carolina. Shealey's in Batesburg-Leesville comes in a close 2nd place. I love the pulled pork with the mustard and pepper vinegar sauces, the rice and hash, the cole slaw, the green beans, the fried okra, the fried skins,the... More

This place has so many choices of flavors of BBQ, mustard, tomato, and vinegar. Everything on the buffet is fresh and hot and delicious. The best rub ribs ever. Wonderful chocolate desert. Great service always crowded.
