As I visit Dover often I've been here a few times. The last time was in June and we were served by Crystal who took great care of us. This is comfort food all the way and I've enjoyed all of the BBQ entrees I've tried. Portions are very adequate and the prices good. I'm happy to say its not... More

You will definitely leave here full. I had the combo of ribs and pulled pork with sweet potatoes fries. The ribs melted off the bone and the pulled pork was tender. Great service.

Jessica was a great server. The food was amazing. We had the pulled pork and pulled chicken combination plate with prickle fries as an appetizer. It was great!!! And the corn bread was mouth watering!!!! We highly recommend.

We had dinner at Where Pigs Fly last evening with about twenty folks from our neighborhood. The service was great and fast. My wife and I each had the full rack of baby back ribs. The ribs were fall off the bone but not overcooked. The rib sauce was very taste but not overdone. The fries were a bit droopy.... More

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. 😭
