Good BBQ at Edisto

Po Pigs is a nice low-cost place to go for some down home BBQ. Servers and cashier were very friendly. Drinks are self-service with no limit on refills.

Yesterday's experience sealed it ..... sadly I will not be returning to Po Pigs Bobq on Edisto Island. I say this after many years of dining there and watching the steady decline of the food quality. It IS sad.....the same friendly face was at the register, the same familiar cook came out as usual to take a break at a... More

In reading some of these reviews, I see some confusion and disappointment. These are obviously by people from "off" (if you're not local, you're from "off"). I can certainly understand why the better reviews are confusing to those who find the place disappointing. Po Pigs is NOT as good as it used to be. I've almost completely stopped making the... More

Although Po Pigs has a big reputation among the locals and does a bustling catering business, we found this restaurant offered good (not great) BBQ (chicken, pork, fish) with many low country sides. BUT it is not the food quality that brings the customers. The pull comes from the low cost ($8 lunch) for unlimited meat, veggies and starches. This... More

Sorry just was not impressed. Food was sitting for a long time and this was on a Saturday evening during which you would think would be very busy. Some of the things I was not sure what the food was. One of the employees instead of cleaning or staying busy was just sitting at a table watching the football game.... More

Good southern food served buffer style. Enjoyed trying the various sauces, Carolina red has a little kick and is the best.

We visited Edisto for the first time last August, and Po Pigs was the first place we ate before we even checked into our condo. Don't go here if you're expecting frills and pretentiousness, this is an old-fashioned, very friendly southern restaurant. Everything is fresh made, and that shows in the flavor and quality of the food. You serve yourself... More

I normally don't do bad reviews, but the food here was not good at all. My family ate here this evening at 6:00 p.m., prime supper time. I would have thought the freshest food would have been on the bar. That was not the case. The food was over cooked or had been sitting out a long time. The staff... More

We got there when it opened at 11:30 and ordered some sandwiches and one dinner to go. I tried the fries as soon as we got in the car and they weren't hot and they were limp. The hash wasn't anything special either. The BBQ was good so get a sandwich with slaw and enjoy with a glass of sweet... More
