I love pork. Especially smoked pork, and so I came here to get a pork sandwich, after all pig is right there in the name! I was not disappointed in the least. I got mine with the medium sauce and slaw on top (first time to have it that way) and it made me into a huge fan! You can't... More

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.

My family and I all love mean pig. The hype is real with this place, as they have some of the best beans on the planet. They are a very friendly crowd with specials all the time. There's definitely something for every one here, even the thrill seekers. Just ask about the shut up juice if it's not hot enough... More

My son and been wanting to try it. He did the "Shut Up Juice" challenge, 2 bites he was done. It was super hot, I tried a bite it was to much. I had the Frito Pie it was good and the staff was very friendly. Outside of the pain of the hot sauce it was a great place.
