“Sounded fun so had to stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012 via mobile

Needed a place to eat and this place sounded fun. So stopped. What an amazing lunch. Place was a little slow (thursday 3p) but service was top notch along with the food. Amazing Smoked Turkey sandwich with a huge side salad. When around the area stop in and have a beer and great bbq.

“Happy Diners”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

We tried a bit of the chicken, brisket and pulled pork barbecue. All was good. My only complaint was that I like my brisket sliced a bit thinner; however, the flavor was good. If you want barbecue in Pensacola, this is your place.

“Happy Pig made me a Happy Girl”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

Here in Pensacola visiting my sister. We went for lunch today and I was extremely happy with the lunch choice. The place was very clean and orderly. The staff was great and helpful. We had a waiter named Eric M. He was very outgoing and fast. The baked beans were the best i have ever eaten !! We had the BLTs, the bacon was thick and flavorful. This isnt like a greasy little bbq place, very cool. Will go back. Bar inside was also very different.. loved it

“Happy Pig is a Hidden BBQ Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

We visited the Happy Pig on a late Sunday afternoon. The interior is quaint, and it does not smell like BBQ. For dog lovers there are doggie biscuits and a water jug outside for those with pets. I had the brisket dinner with the spicy cole slaw and meaty beans. Best BBQ since Famous Daves left Pensacola! Great value, good service makes this eatery a must visit.
