Casual, counter service restaurant specializing in pulled pork, ribs and brisket with a variety of sides. Tasty and well seasoned items, but very pricey for what you get considering the lack of service and somewhat industrial decor. Pepsi products are served, er, self served. Portions...are reasonable. Their rather unappetizingly named appetizer entitled "wolf t***s" are popular. Four sauces are offered, mostly thick, peppery and sugary. A decent choice for meat eaters. With money.More

We went to Smoking Pig BBQ for take-out this time. We ordered pull pork sandwiches with our choice of sides. We chose beans Service was very good. They do a great job of making the pork in their outside smokers.

Diner style restaurant which makes it a comfort place. The brunswick stew was to die for and couldn't have enough of it. Had the three meat combo, brisket, pulled pork, and ribs with many sides. We were so full leaving but extremely satisfied. Prices were...extremely cheap. Service was outstanding. Parking is satisfactory. A great place!More

The interior reminder me of a diner, but the food was outstanding. They have the best baked beans I have ever had. Pulled was delicious

The quality of BBQ at smoking pig is pretty consistent. I usually ask for the 3 meat combo and get my brisket thick cut fatty so it’s nice and juicy. The burnt ends and wolf turd is good too. I always go for the cornbread...though they don’t make it the muffin style anymore. Kind of bummed about that but it’s still good none the less. Good food, atmosphere and great service. Great neighborhood spot.More

Used to like the drinks served here, but they have a new bartender and I don't think he knows what he's doing. Drinks are weak and the martini's are on the small side. We have gone here a few times and decided not to go...in when we see this bartender.More

Have been here many, many times - always good. The appetizers and sides are great, as are the sauces, but the meats stand out: Pork ribs, brisket, sausages all on point. I love me my Q, and this place hits the spot!

Everything we ordered seemed like it was made from scratch right there on location. We popped in for a quick take out order because we are staying at a hotel nearby. We were not disappointed. The brisket fell apart and tasted superb. The beans, while...a little sweet were pretty good. The slaw was unique and fresh. And the sauce selection was wonderful and clearly made right there in house.More
