Checkered Pig

Note the name changed a couple of years ago. They had operated their catering business and contest ventures under Checkered Pig. Their BBQ is excellent, as good as any. I like the sliced because it has almost no fat. I often order takeout and freeze some for emergencies. It freezes well and is... read more

This is a must stop when we are in town. Award winning for ribs,chicken and Brisket and decorated in a Nascar theme. The pulled pork sandwich is the best in the business!!! Killer sauces that we keep a bottle of each in the fridge. Check Thier website at www.checkeredpig.com

Great place for BBQ and I saw a lot of folks getting hot dogs. Very busy at lunch but quick service. Try the chopped BBQ and hit slaw.

Pigs has North Carolina style barbecue that is as good as one can find anywhere. The service is fast and efficient and the ambience is typical of a barbecue joint--maybe a little too noisy and Fox news on each of the several TV's. I continue to go regularly and take out when I can. The name now is actually "The... More

Pigs R Us now known as Checkered Pig is one of the best BBQ places I have ever eaten at. The food is great. The service is very good and the prices are reasonable. There is a little bit of everything on the menu for everyone. Being it is in Martinsville, the hot dog comes with slaw on it.

Service great and the atmosphere is too. Every time I have eaten there it was delicious. I love the Pigs R Us t-shirts and hoodie sweatshirts. If you haven't gone try it.

This place should satisfy the BBQ experience seeker... at least it worked for me: I cannot claim a discriminating palate for authentic BBQ, therefore I did appreciate the food here. Their ribs and risket plate was very savory and you get 4 sides with any selection. And this is Martinsville, VA: certainly not culinary capital of the USA, but where... More

If you want great barbeque, ample fries, and homemade slaw, this is the place to go! Their sauces are great too! This place is called The Checkered Pig now. They have won contests on the food network!

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.
