The food at Smoking Pig BBQ Company is good. Meat (spare ribs and chicken) was tender and not overly dry. The BBQ sauce was dry but not like what we had experienced in Memphis.

We could tell we were in the right place when we drove up to the restaurant and saw the large smokers in the back. The restaurant was in a commercial district. It is a jewel. The restaurant was very clean and the staff members were inviting. Meals are served on metal trays. This is not a problem, because it is... More

There are not a huge number of food choices, but everything is great. The meats are tender and flavorful. And I love the sauces they have on the table. Each is very different and if you like very hot and spicy, there's one for you, but not all are spicy so not to worry. Highly recommend for a very casual... More

We went to check out Girl Jerry and enjoy some good southern BBQ. Let me tell you, they did not disappoint. We had the sampler platter and it was cooked to perfection, the sides they give you are huge and the live music made the night perfect. Check this place out...great food, service and live music.

I've driven by this place hundreds of times and never thought to stop in. After reading reviews on TAdvisor decided it was time to check it out. Parking is tight; the lot is barely navigable with a large vehicle. Tried the combo plate and wolf turds. Every thing was v-good. Good assortment of sauces, reasonable prices and varieties of beer.... More

I have been to the Smoking Pig BBQ three previous times where I had mostly positive experiences. However, the only negative things I had to say in reference to my previous trips here are in regards to the cleanliness of the bathroom and the parking lot is too small to accommodate the customer base. With that said my fiance and... More

Excellent BBQ...very casual The meats are very good and tender and the sides are great - southern greens, corn bread, cole slaw - just to mention a few. If you still have room go for the desserts - bread pudding, peach cobbler -YUM!

We are a very casual BBQ "joint" in the traditional sense. The focus is on the food. Slow smoked meats, homemade sides, rubs, sauces and desserts. Friendly service, at home feel. Excellent beer and wine lists (no kidding). Genuine Southern BBQ. Everything made in-house. Our mission is your delight. We Cater too! 25 to 5000 people.
