Wow great pulled pork!

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... read 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

Classic East Texas barbecue joint looks so cute and country. The waitresses are nice and a tent do once you get their attention. The decor was also very cute and country it fit perfectly with the area. It was Saturday night and they had a girl singing country and soul music, she was really good. I always get brisket or...

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
