Hands down the best barbecue in the whole world. Recommend the sliced plate (sliced into bite sized pieces). Brunswick stew is excellent. They also understand that barbecue was meant to be eaten with white bread. You can smell it two blocks away - do yourself a favor and follow it to Smokey Pig and enjoy!

Came here with some friends as part of their sons turning blue weekend. The BBQ sandwich with 2 sides was delicious! The BBQ nachos were excellent as well! Will definitely go back. This place has been around for 50 years and they know what they're doing. The owner came around to say hi which was a nice touch!

Stopped because we read reviews, this was the worst bbq and slaw that we have ever had. Meat was very overcooked and nasty.

I got the BBQ potato with bacon to go. Very good. I was surprised by the pure weight of the to go tray. Careful not to drop it!

I had the Barbecue Sandwich. I know thats not fancy but the sandwich and a bag or chips were exactly what I wanted. They have plates with sides and all kinds of stuff on the menu but I went for the Barbecue.

This is about the best BBQ in the world. The thing to order is the chipped pork sandwich and a bowl of Brunswick stew. The smoked flavor is out of this world. I grew up in the little town, and live in Atlanta now, but will drive all the way down there just for this BBQ (or Dinglewood Scrambled Dog... More

Super tender bbq pork with unique mustard based sauce. It was wonderful. The place is old and outdated but you don't eat the atmosphere. Go for the BBQ and you will likely go out of your way to get back there from time to time. These are the kinds of places that have memorable BBQ in the south

Ok we decided one day to go visit Columbus Ga. We stopped here to have lunch and boy I wished we had not, the place looks like the 50's and never has been renovated, the staff though friendly looked like the belonged in a tattoo parlor instead of a food place, the ribs were over cooked, the slaw sucked had...

My first visit and I was amazed. The bite sized pork plate was tender and wonderful. The mustard based sauce was light and tasty. The beans and potato salad sides were excellent, but extra $. Plate came with slaw, light bread and lots of pickles. Slaw was different; try small bite first. Pie seemed to have come sliced and pre-packaged... More
