“Outstanding food, average location and tad pricy -- but we will be back”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2011

Porkie's is in an unique building. I'm not sure if it used to be some other restaurant or whatever, but it's not your typical place to have a BBQ sandwich. However, once you take a bite, you'll love this place. They have combos with two sides, and you can go back and refill the sweet or unsweet tea or soft drink as many times as you like. Try the banana pudding, but if you do ANYTHING, try their potatoes. My goodness they're good. You will spend a few dollars here, but trust me and my wife -- it's worth it.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2011

My wife and I were disappointed by ribs at Hogs earlier in the week. We stopped here and the ribs were excellent!

“Best BBQ we've had anywhere in Florida”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2010 via mobile

Excellent BBQ! Best we've had in Daytona area. Smoked with love right out in the back & served with delicious sides and sauces. This is the real stuff that puts the junk from the chain BBQ places to shame. The sides are as good, fresh & as interesting as the meat. The prices are reasonable, the portions are generous & the service is very hospitable. We had the ribs (both the spare & the baby back) & they were both as good as we've ever had (with the choice of 5 different home mad BBQ sauses at the table to enjoy them with(& two more special ones - an extra hot & a vinegar based - in the back if you ask). If you're feeling like real BBQ & are in the Daytona area, there is nothing comparable in our opinion (after trying several over the course of three years in the area)
