Wow good food at low low prices in a clean spot and great fast service. If this was in my home town I would eat there every day for lunch.

I was in the area, and being a huge BBQ fan, I read the reviews and was expecting something special. It was not. They have the locals business, but I would NOT make a trip out of the way to eat here. Pork sandwich was very average. The Ribs were okay. They had very good texture, but no flavor at... More

Pigs r us is now checked pig, with nothing changed except the name..and that's good news. Their barbeque is award winning with hushpuppies to match. Don't care for the slaw and space is very limited, so go early or late. The number of locally owned restaurants is on the decline, so we liket to support them.

Any visitor to the Martinsville area has to make a visit to this restaurant....which now operates under the name "Checkered Pig". Nothing fancy....just great bar-b-que of all types.....great onion rings (too).....and tasty homemade desserts. These folks haven't won those several national awards because they don't know what they're doing when it comes to making great food...served up quick and friendly.... More

Definitely the best BBQ I've ever had & the hushpuppies are wonderful as well. All of the food here is great. Service is always fast and friendly as well. The owners are great people!

We've been going to this restaurant for years and I have to say last night's visit didn't meet expectations. The fries were hot but everything else was served room temperature--orders at our table included brisket, smoked wings, ribs, and hotdogs--all cold. Please note: This is not normal for this establishment, we had become accustomed to a much better experience here... More

Pigs R Us has the best BBQ of anyplace. They have won numerous awards....and they are well deserved. Great food, quick service and pleasant staff. Only downside is that it gets crowded, especially at lunch and it can be a little noisy if you're trying to have a conversation. Overall though, if BBQ is your game, this is THE place... More

I've been to Pigs R Us, AKA The Checkered Pig, many times in the past. I have always had a pleasant experience. The Martinsville location is clean and homey but slightly cramped. Not so much that it bother me too much. I'm a big fan of good Q so I believe the first thing you should smell in the parking... More

my wife loves BBQ ribs and is very picky. she loved the ribs and I loved the pulled BBQ pork at this establishment. It is mouth watering BBQ at its best. My wife had half a slab and I had the pulled pork platter. It was worth the trip from Eden to Martinsville.

This was my first time at Pigs R Us even though I've been to Martinsville several times. Made the decision to try it after seeing the owner on BBQ Pitmasters. Was not disappointed. I had the wings and brisket for my meal. Others had the BBQ plates. My son had the BBQ sandwich and it was the quickest I've ever... More
