What happened here?

I moved to the area more than 8 years ago. At that time this was one of the better BBQ places around. It was a nice place to go way out on Hwy 155. Over the years it just started hiring some really "Care Less) type people. And that is when the food started to taste like they could care... read more

We started with fried jalapeño as app. Yummy!! My husband got the Cow pie which has your choice of meat (cow being the beef). It is fritos topped with beans, nacho cheese sauce, coleslaw & meat. Absolutely delicious!! I got BBQ nachos with pork, which was absolutely delicious also! Customer service was great! Awesome prices. We got all the above... More

I have been here a few times, and the food is always good. I like that I don't have to eat Bar-be-que every time I visit. The prices are decent, and the food is fresh. It's a fun place to meet up with friends or host a group.

Cute Cafe with good pulled pork. I had the pulled pork sandwich. It was really good. The wait staff was very friendly. I really enjoyed my meal. The only thing that I could complain about was that the meat in the sandwich could have been a little warmer.

I can name several BBQ places that are better than Purple Pig. It seems to have a loyal following but I am not one. Their ribs are tough as leather. Pulled pork is just acceptable. Lots of fried sides, etc. service is average. It appears 'dirty' and "dingy". The only reason I ate and returned was it is close to... More

I never expected such a small place to have awesome food but they sure did. We ordered a pulled pork sandwich on a bun with fried okra as the side item. The pork was so good and did not have any visible fat. The bbq sauce was a little runny but was very tasty. We loved it so much we... More

Went in today for lunch with friends. We wanted to try something different. The atmosphere was somewhat unique as it seemed like a very old building and had quite a few indian decorations adorning the place in addition to the prominent purple pig. Our waitress was very friendly though she was a bit scattered as she passed us by a... More

The ownership of the Pig has changed hands. I dropped in to pick up some tamales to take home. No hay más tamales! I would drive 55 miles to get those. Now the feature is crawfish, which is fine, but I can get those in 2 miles. Sad to se the change.

At first glance, the menu here will seem strange to most of us. Every corner of the pig is used in some recipe. Be adventerous and give it a try. There are many opportunities for small-plate sharing and this makes it fun. The atmosphere is festive and the service quite good for a busy place. I would go during off-hours... More
