“Awesome spot with a surprise twist”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

First let me say that my husband and I are BBQ fanatics, and have eaten at many many BBQ's up and down the east coast. We have a few favorites, and this is our new best-ever. This is a family run operation, and they totally have it down. The food was amazing. Yes, it's southern BBQ, but being from Trinidad as I remember, they add their own island spin. The mother has pots full of deliciousness on the stove, we had stewed sweet potatoes that were heavenly, and the black eyes peas were incredibly flavorful. The pulled pork was the best I've had. Seriously. It was different from the rest in that it was juicy and without the typical sauces. That was some special pulled pork. The daughter was at the counter and couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. Tickle My Pig is reason for a road trip.

“Best BBQ EVER”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Thank you trip advisor ! The smokiest most delicious ribs and brisket! The pub fries didn't need ketchup(to quote my daughter who Always uses ketchup!) seasoned with salt and lots of pepper. Seat potatoes were in a seat honey glaze and melted in your mouth. A must if you love BBQ.

“Let's not mince words; this Caribbean/Southern BBQ Fusion Place is a 'Must-Eat'!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

That's right. So unassuming - almost a place you'd drive right by or not expect much out of precisely because it's so ordinary looking...but don't be fooled. This place offers a unique and scrumptious dining experience that'll have you coming back for more (like I did for my birthday the other day). And again -- it was worth it, and how.

It's Southern Barbecue with a distinct West Indian flair, with just the right amount of spices without being overwhelming (although there are an array of sauces the offer in case you want to kick it up a notch or two).

The 3 'Best Bets' in my book are the pulled pork, ribs and jerk chicken...all so succulent and delicious (and you can even order them as a Pig-out Combo with a few sides).

Consider a side-trip a few miles up the road and you'll find Bushkill Falls, a fabulous natural wonder where you can walk-off that well-worth-it caloric overload, and you have the makings of a spectacular day-trip.

Run...don't walk. This is the real thing when it comes to BBQ like you've never had before.

“Like BBQ? You should check this out!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Small, casual restaurant with great food and friendly service. We arrived just before closing time, but they were super-accommodating and welcoming. Adults and kids all enjoyed the food. Try the "Messy Bessy" - homemade brisket, pulled pork, coleslaw and pickles piled high on a bun. Tasty ribs and cornbread too. Wish we could have tried the collard greens, but they were sold out for the day. Definitely the best meal we had in the area!

“Amazing hole in the wall BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

This little place is easy to miss as you fly down the road, but worth a stop if you have a chance. Every dish mets in your mouth and the flavor are incredible. It seems to be a family owned place where the mother marinades and spices all the meats and the daughter runs the front of the house. This place is more of a West Indies type pf BBQ rather than the southern BBQ, and the food is right on point!
