Susan, we're sorry you didn't find value in the quality of our food. It does cost more to use high quality ingredients and serve fresh smoked meats and made-from-scratch sides than it does to serve cheap pre-made institutional food, but we think it's worth it....More

Good food, Good Service. They have a room that can be reserved for meetings of 20 - 25 people. Give it a try.

We’ve eaten here many times and really love the bbq. The brisket is great too. If you want good smoky bbq, this is the best place to get it.

Visited The Pompous Pig in search of good BBQ. This place was awesome! I didn’t need to use sauce! The ribs were perfect and the brisket was spot on! I will make sure I visit this place again when in Anderson!

Thank you, Robert! That's our goal -- BBQ so good that sauce is optional. We look forward to seeing you again next time you're in our neck of the woods!
