“You can pig out here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Had seen this place in my weekly travels, but never stopped until Friday. Restaurant was clean, with a nice seating arrangement. I got my order to go, and the store manager, Brandon, was very helpful in placing my order.

The barbecue was tender and the sauce was just right for my taste. Collard greens were right on. I will visit again.

“Better than we ever expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

We stopped in tonight, and were pleasantly surprised by how delicious it was. Very reasonably priced, and friendly, helpful staff.

“Not good today”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012 via mobile

We went 8/26 mid afternoon. No cars parked outside, no patrons inside. Other food service places nearby were moderately busy. Wife and I went in and wow! Super clean, pleasent decor! Friendly greeting at order window, lone person offered to bring order out to table to us. Kool! Beep, beep, beep! No, can't be a microwave! Yes it was :-( both orders of Baby back ribs were cold and pink, corn muffins cold right out of fridge, Sides came out in plastic containers and tasted like they were made off premises.
BBQ sauce was so, so, lack of flavor was made up for in sweetness.
By the other reviews, this cannot be the norm for this place. But I'm not planning on going back and check.

“The Best BBQ ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

OMG! Simply the best! I had Ribs and Brisket. Both were melt in your mouth. The homemade BBQ sauces that the cook makes from scratch were incredible. The service was quick and friendly. I'm going back tonight. By the way its pretty cheap to buy a dinner or lunch there.

“Unexpectedly Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

Based on the reviews from others on Trip Advisor, we decided to order some BBQ for our weekend cookout party from Pig Out. We expected it to be good just because of all the positive reviews but what we got was more than just good - it was great! The beef brisket was the best we have had anywhere - and we have had BBQ from the best in the South such as the 4 Rivers in Orlando and Dinousaur BBQ in Troy! The pulled port was also super delicious and also 5 star. We would recommend the food from Pig Out to anyone who wants really awesome BBQ! We are really glad that now we don't have to travel too far for great BBQ.
