Friendly family BBQ restaurant. Stopped in on 3 separate occasions on way back to Atlanta and had the pork, sausage, ribs, brisket (when available), and a hamburger, all have been very good. The BBQ is not swimming in sauce just a little on top with extra on the side that way you can taste the real flavor of the BBQ.... More

My husband, teenage son, & I flew into Birmingham for a family reunion. We arrived before our hotel room was ready so we asked for a good local place to have lunch. Porky's came highly recommended. What a pleasant surprise! It's a local "hole in the wall" but boy oh boy was it fantastic. The service was excellent. The owner's... More

I work down the street and used to come here when the old owners owned it and the new owners are great. The steaks are delicious and the pork sandwiches are great. I love the atmosphere and they make awesome drinks. Try the Vegas bomb they make a good one.

Price's to high for what you get. Small serving and poor service. Has changed owners and may have improved, but I am afraid to try it again.

This restaurant totally fulfilled my expectations for a barbeque joint. It had the essential smell of smoke, looked a little rough on the outside, but inside, was very clean, and the staff mad you feel at home.. The pork is expertly prepared and just downrigt good. The portions are great, and absolutely one of the best barbeque joints I have... More

We went on a Wednesday night as a group of about 10 or 12 guys. The steaks were tough and the BBQ was just ok. Nothing special or anything that made it unique enough to go back. The service was good. It was a mid-week dinner and they only had one waitress on duty. The owner and a couple others... More

I do believe I remember your group and I hate that your experience was just "average". I would love for you to come back now that we have had a chance to improve. When you dined with us we were only 45 days into ownership. We continue to improve but I can promise we have came along way since your... More

This is a unique place. You can cook your own steak or have them cook it for you at an additional cost.

We recently moved to this area and discovered Porky's Pride this summer...Loved dog friendly patio and friendly service. The BBQ Salad very good (and a heck of a better value/tastier than Full Moon, which has "ground up little dried chunks of meat" ...what is their problem?!) Porky's has Fresh salad with good portion of pulled bbq meat! Had very good... More

If you're looking for Southern Hospitality and down home cooking this little restaurant is for you. It has a great family atmosphere and small town feel and the food is great. Get there early on nights when the Crimson Tide is playing because the BBQ Ribs disappear fast.

We are a local owned full service bar and restaurant. We have great bbq, fantastic steaks, and what many people consider the best smoked wings in the state.
