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.

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
