Ribs and chicken smoker done here. We had the sampler and it was ok. Actually we were disappointed . They did have some outside seating . Takeaway was done well with respect to Covid. Ribs had a taste I was not exactly happy with. Others...might like that spice,so be fair and try the place. A lot of people like it a lot .More

Been a few weeks since coming back to the Pig Rig, with the current situation the country is dealing with, takeout is the option. As expected, food is great, even takeout. The team is working hard to keep things going and I am happy to...support. I had the Chicken platter ( chicken thighs, cole slaw and corn bread) and it did not disappoint. The taste is amazing and the sides are perfect. As things improve, I will return to my regular weekly lunch at the Pig Rig and recommend highly.More

Stopped in again for the weekly fix and never disappoints. Had the brisket sandwich with cole slaw and was perfect. Last time I had the brisket it was fatty, but this time perfect. The coleslaw is amazing too. Not busy in the shop, which is...a concern as this place is great. Might be the location but I hope people find how amazing this place is.More

I'm going to be brief. Two meat combo, ribs and chicken. Amazing!!! Cowboy beans and cornbread. I've been here before, so I knew the food would be amazing, but actually strong and enjoying the meal was a great experience! The atmosphere was nice, seating comfortable,...and the food...wow! Tender ribs that fall off the bone, sauced perfectly, and the chicken was tender and juicy. I don't like dark meat, but it was incredible!!! Cornbread was tasty, not dry and the beans were flavorful with pieces of brisket. I said I would be brief lol, oh well. I would've given 5 stars, but my ribs were a bit cold. The owner said to tell him next time and he would fix it. Highly recommend this place!More

Been coming here for a while now and it never disappoints. As we were kicking off the holidays, we originally were going to change it up, but consensus was we could not miss the PigRig. This week I went with the pulled chicken (great as...always) and added the Mac-n-cheese, and glad i did. Normally I have the coleslaw, which is very good, but was looking for something warm. It's so well done and so tasty, amazing it is. Everyone should try this hidden jem.More

Had a Groupon to use and my friends and I decided to pick up some delicious bbq for lunch. So I went to pig rig- and got the food to take home - while I was out on errands. I had a hotdog with everything...on it - so good! And we shared the bbq chicken and bbq ribs with sides of Mac n cheese and cowboy beans. Delicious! Along with corn muffins and sweet potato bread. If you haven’t been to Pig Rig- you should try it. They have a great variety of bbq items you will enjoy!! There is plenty of seating in the dining room and lots parking in frontMore

I've eaten here 5 times already in just 5 months. It would be more if I lived closer. I have had the ribs, pulled pork sandwich, beef brisket sandwich, cowboy beans (a must) and everything is yummy. Bring your own bottle if you wish. Prices...are very reasonable and portions are generous.More

I could go on forever about how delicious the food is at Pig Rig. I've been several times, and it never disappoints. The pulled pork is amazing, and my favorite dish on the menu is the Pig Mac, which piles on the pulled pork and...tops it with mac and cheese. I also love their corn bread and coleslaw. Everyone is always friendly and it's the best BBQ in CT!More

Seek out this place if you're looking for BBQ. Ribs were outstanding as well as the beans. Arkansas salesman will be back for sure on next visit.
