The waitress/cook was friendly and asked if I'd been in before. When I said no she explained the menu. I went with the smash burger. Great smoky flavor mixed with the sweetness of the sauce. The quick pickles were so delicious and I really loved the pickled onions. A little pricey. $14 for the burger and a root beer but... More

Amazing local food with a friendly staff. It may not be the place for all, but if you like good food and supporting local farmers and businesses this is the spot! Don't come here expecting a McDonald's burger (see previous reviewers that need culture), come looking for fresh and house cured meats cooked right in front of you! Good beer... More

We stopped in for lunch on a Saturday; first it was not really what we were expecting but decided to give it a try based on ratings alone. First we were never greeted and we just stood inside trying to figure out whether we order at the meat counter or have a seat. I finally asked and the server told... More

We stopped in here on our food journey through Tupelo and we were glad we did. This is a combo butcher shop and dinner counter. We ordered the 2 types of burgers and they both were very tasty. Although the bun was much bigger than the burger and once the excess bun was trimmed away it was an amazing burger.... More

Passing through Tupelo on way to the Gulf, we got a recommendation from both Tripadvisor and our hotel clerk for the Neon Pig. It was a Friday and she said we might be able to get in there and would find it worth a visit. She was right--we hit it just in time, however, as the tiny dining area filled... More

I have eaten here twice and each visit was very good. They have a small menu and there is always a special. On my first visit, I had a Smashburger. Second visit, I had the special for the day, Grouper Tacos. Both were very good. My understanding of the restaurant is that all of the ingredients are procured locally, including... More

Stopped in almost by mistake on the way to Memphis. Thought we were walking into a typical BBQ place, but boy were we wrong. I had the taco special with chicken and the wife had Smoked chicken on flatbread. Nothing typical here. Much better than my description! It's actually half butcher shop / half restaurant. Stop & Eat. Will become... More

This outfit, together with its affiliate KOK Kermits down the street, serves the best burgers I've ever eaten. Ever. I don't know about the other items on the menu, and sure you're gonna pay a bit, but you have to have the Smash, the Elvis and whatever other burgers they offer. Great craft beers in the fridge at Neon Pig... More

This stop was well worth it for these travel weary folks. Passing thru and looking for something other than the well known fast food. Cool place with fun atmosphere and fabulous food. Very tasty although different from the norm. Service was outstanding and the folks were super friendly. Will definitely stop in again when in the neighborhood. Louanne P
