Be sure and try the Frito BBQ Pie. This restaurant is somewhat famous for it's "shut-up" juice. Admittedly I have never and will never try this, but for the adventurous, it is an option. The BBQ is excellent and service always pleasant.

If you're looking for great BBQ the this is a great place to have some. This is a family owned and operated small town business. There sandwiches are delicious. If you want a hot sauce the the shut up sauce is for you to try but it is not for the weak. Definitely give Thai place a try.

The BBQ almost melts in your mouth. I prefer the BBQ beef with a sweet sauce without slaw. I try to eat there at least once a month if not once a week. I first met Buddy and his father when they simply had their smoker on the other side of the street. For many years they have had their... More

I've been eating Mean Pig BBQ since the days of the roadside stand. I keep coming back because it's the best in the area. Also Buddy and his staff are fast and friendly. I highly recommend the BBQ Frito Pie and make it sloppy with slaw. Everything is worth it though. Give them a try and you won't regret it.

Mean pig is amazing, the bbq is awesome, the family that runs the place is also awesome. The feel is typical bbq, the sauces are awesome. The flavors are delicious, the meat is always amazing, the service is always amazing even when the place is packed.
