Don't waste your time on the BBQ. Get the catfish. It. Is. AWESOME. I'm am beyond picky when it comes to catfish because I don't want the muddy taste that I can't seem to get away from. But not at Porky's! That stuff is legit!

Love the fish plates, the bake potatoes are huge, brown beefs are good. The prices are excellent. Not a fancy place but the service is good.

My brother-in-law and his wife took my wife and I here. The FRIED catfish and smoked Turkey were well & and properly prepared. The Pie for dessert was wonderful.

We arrived at Porky's to pop in and get a to-go order at 1:00 P.M. We ordered a rib plate, a hamburger, and a chicken sandwich. The last of the lunch crowd was finishing up, and as I waited on my order, I noticed each person that came to the register to pay their bill had to wait on the... More

This is a local favorite which speaks volumes to me. I had the rib plate that was excellent. No alcohol served. But you could always order out! Service was fast even though they were busy on a Wednesday evening.

We have been to Porky's twice and each time we were told they were out of something. The first time they were out of baked potatoes, but then I heard the waitress say that they had to use their potatoes because they ran out of fries. Then as we were leaving we heard them tell someone they were out of... More

Skip the BBQ and get the fried catfish..generous portions of really awesome catfish. Chopped beef was ground??? Patriotic atmosphere with poor service but reasonably priced.

Sounds funny- but a whole group met here & everyone ate the fried fish. Not disappointed at all. I ordered the two filet dinner & I think I got like 6 filets w french fries, hush puppies, and cole slaw for under $9. It was really good fish & I would order it again in a heartbeat. We were there... More

My husband & I are very enthusiastic about BBQ and were terribly disappointed with our meats here. We both had turkey and sausage. The turkey tasted like it was out of a can and the sausage tasted like it was grocery store bought. The BBQ sauce was very tomatoey and not very well spiced. We arrived at 5:30pm on a... More

Yeah, I know, you don't go to a BBQ place to have a salad. I did and I'll never forget it. Porky's slices the fresh lettuce and piles on the meat and veggies with their Chef Salad. If they added a boiled egg to it, this chef salad would be perfection. Oh, their fried catfish is awesome too, as is... More
