We always seem to by the St. Louis Rib dinner. Great meal. Comes with 2 sides. More ribs than even I can eat. Better value than most other barbeque places.

We chose the Purple Pig because of its rustic East Texas décor. It looked like it could have come right out of the oil boom period. I was not impressed with the food. The meat selections we ordered were served on the cool side of warm, and were pretty dry. The sodas we were served were canned in 2012, and... More

We tried the purple pig while staying at the villages resort. It's about 2 miles or so from the resort. We visited on a very busy day on memorial weekend. Service was a little slow but super friendly. Smoked meats were all very tasty, and they had several sides to choose from. I really enjoyed the skillet potatoes. Their BBQ... More

This was a small BBQ restaurant near our resort. I ordered the single meat brisket dinner. It was WAY more than enough food and I was glad I didn't opt for the 2-meat dinner. The brisket was super lean and juicy. And, the fried okra and cowboy beans were perfect. The only drawback when we were there around noon was... More

Loved the purple pig sandwich, pulled pork with purple cabbage, Sauce and meat were flavorful. Menu selection included more than just BBQ and prices were reasonable. Service was slow, but the place was busy at the time.

We have been living within 2 miles of the "Pig" for two years now. Had never bothered to stop because of mixed reviews from our neighbors. Sorry now we waited so long. Good food, well priced, good portions, clean and a friendly staff to boot. Give it a try hopefully you will like it as much as we did.

I have stopped at Purple Pig many times over several years and enjoy their barbecue. For me, the atmosphere doesn't lend itself to quiet, relaxed dining so usually get my order "to go." Friendly staff.
