Hubs and I both ordered the same meal, pulled pork, Mac n cheese, and fries with a sweet tea. It was all underwhelming I'm sad to say because it was a quaint little local spot with a sweet waitress. Maybe other menu items taste better - but these in particular were average to barely edible. 😭

Went to dine in for the first time. As usual, the food was FABULOUS! Our waitress, Jasmine Robinson was a refreshing personality herself. She was so friendly and funny! She had only been employed by Where Pigs Fly for a couple of weeks.....so when we asked about a few of the menu items and what she thought about them, instead... More

My husband and I were in town for a wedding. We decided to give this restaurant a try for lunch. We were not disappointed. We ordered combos. The ribs were really good but the star was the cornbread. Oh. My. God. It was sweet and oh so wonderful.

Had brisket and pulled pork sandwiches. Both were excellent. Service was great, portions and price were good. Wish I could have eaten in the restaurant but had it to go. Not quite the Happy Tomato but real good.

We only tried the BBQ sandwiches, but neither my hubby or I were overly imposed with the BBQ pork. Perhaps other menu items are better.

I have been here before. Here for lunch with someone who had not been here before. I had a pulled pork sandwich with coleslaw and warm apples. My friend had a half a chicken with apples. We both enjoyed our food. The waitress did a great job. I will be back another time.

I stopped here on a road trip with 2 other people to OCMD for lunch on a friday. They open earlier than most lunch places, and I was hungry earlier that noon, so it worked out nicely. We pulled in the parking lot and when I opened the door, I got hungrier. The smell was heavenly. We walked in and... More

Where pigs fly was WONDERFUL! Great, friendly staff and Kelly helped me get the right amount of food for our party. The food was delicious and everyone was so impressed and full! I would definitely use them again and recommend even just stopping in for Delaware's best pulled pork sandwich. Yum! Thank you all!

My husband and I ate lunch at Where Pigs Fly recently. I had a pulled pork sandwich and he had the pulled chicken sandwich. Both meals were delicious! We both had a side of their broccoli salad which is the best I ever had anywhere!
