This restaurant is a few miles off interstate 85, but absolutely worth the time to get there. I had a pulled pork sandwich that was out of this world. Great quality and fair price.

My wife and I tried Pompous Pig for the first time. While the food was good, I have had better BBQ and fixin's. The portions were small proportionate to the prices charged. Our bill was right at $27.00 for two plates and drinks. Will not rule out a return trio, however.

Went for dinner. Food was good. Portions for the sides were kinda small, served in a small styrofoam container. Everything was hot. Servers were very friendly. We thought the prices were high. You pay separately for each side - $2 - $3 each. Add that to a $6 or $7 entree and it adds up quick. Not sure we would... More

Stopped here for lunch on a trip thru S.C. Just off I-85 downtown Anderson. Worth the time it took to stop and eat. We had ribs, baked beans, Cole slaw, Texas toast and cornbread. Had samples of brisket, chicken, and pulled pork. Really good smoky flavor from all. They have really good sauces for a variety of taste. The Alabama... More

Based on the recommendation from a family friend, we stopped in Anderson on our trip between Columbia, SC and Atlanta, GA. The Pompous Pig is a little hard to find. It is tucked into the back of a strip mall. However, if you are using a GPS device, you shouldn't have any trouble finding it. We sampled all of their... More

The BBQ is good and I believe they are open every day not just thurs-sat. The pretzel bum is great and their Sauces are very good. Pompous pig is one of the best in anderson.

We tried this restaurant for the first time and LOVED it. It was a little hard to find (shares the same building as a mattress store,) but I sure am glad we found it. The pulled pork was excellent. There were 4 sauces on each table, so there was something for everyone's taste. The mashed potato bake was soooo creamy... More

Description
THE BEST BBQ! Smoked Pork, Ribs, Chicken, Beef Brisket and Sausages. The meats are smoked daily for 8 to 14 hours in our on-site BBQ Pit using a mixture of woods (Hickory, Pecan, White Oak) combined with unique blends of spices and rubs. Our traditional southern side dishes are cooked from scratch in-house each day. Come on by and visit us early 'cause when it's gone, IT'S GONE!
