“Good BBQ, good buffet.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

In an unassuming short white 1 story building, you will find the closest thing to an outdoor cookout under one roof that you will ever come across. Quite cheap for a buffet, one price gets you all you can eat country home-cooking like greens, potato or broccoli salad, bread and butter pickles, baked mac-n-cheese (yum), tomato casserole (yum yum), fresh homemade potato chips, baked beans, BBQ ribs, fried chicken, pulled pork with 3 sauces, hush puppies, rolls, sweet tea, sodas and fried pork rinds. Dessert is chocolate-peanut butter pie, banana pie, or peaches. styrofoam plates and plastic utensils may turn some off, but hey, it was $10!!! For all you can eat! Don't forget to try the dry-rubbed rubs hidden behind the dessert tray. Dig IN!

“Just like the name states !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

No doubt about it when you leave this joint you feel like a little pig. This place is not for anybody on a diet, wanting to be on a diet, or a health freak. This is true down home southern cooking at its finest. The BBQ and buffet is one of the best in the state. Never had a problem with anything there. The only problem is that everyone loves it, so it needs to be twice as big. Worth every penny

“Heaven in a buffet?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I do not like eating at buffets but this was beyond delicious! Southern cooking at its finest and in a buffet- who would have thought. I was very impressed. The food was excellent and the staff was very friendly. 3 types of pulled pork is provided- BBQ, mustard and Vinegar. I liked them in that order. My husband liked the Vinegar one the best. He enjoyed the vinegar flavor pulled pork so much that he is trying to recreate it at home.
I wish we had a Little Pigs BBQ in Michigan!
