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

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.

This place is awesome!! We went on the recommendation of a coworker and they did not disappoint. I had the pulled port sandwich and a huge half wrack of ribs and it was wonderful. I tasted the toothpick and kind of regreted it but it was GOOOOOOOD. Took our entire team back a few days later and had the sliced... More

Acknowledging that our recollection of past events is not always perfect, I do recall previous visits to the Mean Pig were quite tasty. Sandwiches with ample amounts of tasty meat, slaw and sauce were the expectation and this Mean Pig met (and exceeded) that standard with regularity. In brief, I'd look forward to a visit to Mean Pig. A recent... More

This is a very clean and homey place with delicious BBQ! We had both pork and beef and they were very tasty. Our meal included potato salad, pork n beans with coleslaw and all tasted homemade. The meat comes dry and then you can pick the type of sauce your like. It's seems like a down to earth kind of... More
