Very good brisket, maybe 4 ozs.,on a skimpy bed of lettuce w possibly 2 tomatoes slices chopped in for $10.25. I returned home to eat, still hungry. There salad does comes w chz and almonds but I thought the beef would be plenty of protein...so I asked them to leave the chz and almonds off.More

Best BBQ that I have had in a while. I am looking forward to going back again this coming week. My daughter loved her sandwich. I was a little disappointed with the sweet potato casserole, it wasn’t quite as sweet as I had expected. Otherwise...it was awesome.More

Thanks for your review! We'll check the sweet potato casserole recipe and see if it needs a bit of tweaking. See you next week!

I love BBQ, but some of it is overly smoked in my opinion. I enjoyed the pork sandwich I got here. The taste was great, with just the right amount of smokiness. Highly recommended!

Food is great but the amount seemed a little light and price went up. I still recommend it to everyone I know.More

Thanks for your rating and your recommendations! We've added new smaller portion options at lower prices, and new menu items like our sliders that cost less than full size items. Due to post-Covid cost increases we did have to increase our brisket prices a little...More

Eat here often and love the brisket. It is always tender enough to cut with a fork. Good sides especially baked beans. Always a friendly staff.

Food at the Pompous Pig is consistently good. I had the 1/2 rack of ribs, my husband tried the BBQ quesadilla special, which he said was excellent, and my friend had the chicken salad, which she enjoyed. The only reason I gave it a 4...was because the last few times I've eaten there, my BBQ was served lukewarm.More

Thanks, Chicago. We're glad you enjoyed the food, and apologize that the BBQ was lukewarm. Don't hesitate to let us know if something's not hot enough, we'll gladly remake it for you! We want to earn that fifth star!

Good barbecue; pulled pork very flavorful and smoky; brisket tender, but not much smoke flavor. Fried okra tasted as if it came out of bag of frozen food. Mac & cheese was better, as were the collard greens. Cool T-shirts for sale.

Thanks for your review, Banjo Man! We don't use liquid smoke to flavor our brisket, but we might have been a log short on the smoker. :)

Every time my family and I go there the food is amazing, the workers are friendly, and the atmosphere is very laid back. Hands down, it is the best place to get BBQ in Anderson.

I read the reviews, I ate the food, it was delicious! Restaurant is kind of hard to fine it’s in the back end of a strip center but the food is delicious! Looks like a mom-and-pop place that has got their recipes right. Tried a...combo plate with brisket and ribs ribs were fall off the bone tender and Selection of sauces was wide (don’t forget to ask for the spicy sauces that are not typically on the table). The sides of Brunswick stew collard greens mac & cheese and sweet potato fries were all fresh hot and well spiced! Service was friendly and fast... the food came out hot and You have self-serve options for drinks. If you like Southern barbecue you can’t go wrong visiting Pompous Pig!More
