“DELICIOUS!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We tried Pete's Pig in their Belgrade location. We got the pulled pork sandwiches, baked beans and were very happy with the food. It was delicious!!! It's a small location but that doesn't matter. It's the food that you go for and it's well worth it!!!

“Pete's Pig Southern BBQ....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2012 via mobile

We've tried Pete's Bbq when they were located at the Pine Cove furniture lot, I remember tasty bbq, good sides, fresh cut Fries! They've moved down the road abit to their New location on Dead rivers parking lot. My Girlfriend wanted some bbq along with a tasty side of fried okra sounded Great to me off we go to Pete's.

My Girl, ordered the Pulled pork sandwich special, pulled pork sandwich, baked beans infused with bits of puled pork...very good. Cole slaw for $7.75 not a bad deal. A couple of items we wanted were'nt available such as the Cuban sandwich and fried okra. So I ordered the sampler which is pulled pork sandwich, ribs, sides of baked beans and cole slaw. We chose the fresh cut fries they do those really well...As for the Sandwiches they're good but what pushes a bbq sandwich over for Us is toasted buns, it makes a Difference. Another thing they could do, is cover the menu items that are sold out, they have good bbq I wanna see and hear more people enjoying there food

“Best Barbeque Ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2011 via mobile

I went here with my family. It is a traditional bbq spot, with friendly staff and great food. We ordered nachos, ribs, and a turkey wrap which were all fabulous! Napkins are available at the front counter and we enjoyed sitting outside in the fresh Maine air. We definitely will be back.

“Pete's Pig at Belgrade Lakes location”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2011

This review is for the Pete's Pig Southern BBQ at their new location in downtown Belgrade Lakes. It is a take-out only with no seating inside (and no restroom that I could see). There is a table for 4 on the deck facing the street, and a couple of umbrella tables on the side of the building. The place looked clean and during our visit there was a small container of free mini-cupcake sized cornbread samples (jalapeno or blueberry). We tried the blueberry cornbread sample - it was OK.

The man came to the order window very soon after we rung the bell. He was very polite and friendly. We ordered the pulled pork nachos, pulled pork sandwich and baby ribs. Our order came out fast (there were no other customers present). He called out that our food was ready and we had to go to the order window to retrieve our meal.

All cutlery was plastic and the meal containers were paper or styrofoam (we ordered sit down, not take out). On the table there were 3 napkins (for 4 of us), the usual condiments, a bottle of hot sauce and a bottle of mild (and mediocre) BBQ sauce. There were several packets of lemon-scented hand wipes which we really appreciated.

When our food came out - the nachos were nothing more than the cheap round chips and yellow melted cheese that you'd get in any convenience store - with pulled pork sandwiched between the two. That's it for $6. We were shocked but ate it anyway. The pulled pork was fairly good with a sweet taste, but drenched in cheap yellow cheese.

The ribs were small but good too. None of the food stood out as great and we were shocked at the cheapness of their nacho meal. There were no sides with any of our meals - no beans, coleslaw, cornbread - nothing except the bare minimum order.

Bottled drinks (lemonade/soda) averaged $1.76 each. No alcohol is served there.

Again, the guy behind the counter was very nice, but we won't return to this BBQ.

Total bill was $37ish, for 4 small meals and 1 bottle drink each - we left barely satiated.
