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

This is the worst bbq place I have ever been too. Food was aweful. The queso and chips was tositos nacho sauce heated and served in styrofoam bowl with stale chips. My wife and I are still recovering from the dry bbq two days later. The staff couldnt care less.

This was a very interesting experience of eateries. I had the pork pie dinner. It was pletiful and good. Their menu offers many varieties of food and drink. It is a real good place for families and couples.

I have been here several times and in the past this had been a great place. I am sad to report a lot has changed. They have removed a few food items off the menu. The wait staff though semi friendly is the slowest I have ever seen and it is not busy. The food is way below average portion... 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
