Needed a last minute diner. Stopped in to pick up some ribs. Meat fell off the bone delicious. Sauce is good too. Had the garlic fries, they were great. Baked beans were tasty as well. Portions were huge. My wife and I split a full slab with two sides and had left overs. Definately recommend and will be coming back

Got the pulled pork, although the pork itself was good, the barbecue sauce that comes on the side was bland and not at all to our liking! Comes with baked beans that were good and cole slaw which had no flavor. Probably won't be back!

This place is AWESOME! Best Reuben sandwich around the New Lenox- Mokena-Frankfort area! Hands down! The Brisket and Pulled Pork almost melt in your mouth! The baked beans and coleslaw are made fresh! The ladies working there are very helpful! (kinda cute too!) Great environment to get a great meal at a great price! Wait.......... They do catering too? OMG!

A lovely lady owns The Irish Pig and she is a cooks up some great pulled pork. The sandwiches are huge, heaped with tasty BBQ pork. In the past, she catered several events for me and I was never disappointed. The small place is set back a ways from the main road, but keep looking and you'll be glad you... More

OK, but if you're looking for a "deep South" type of bar-b-q, this isn't it. Not that that makes it bad - it's just more mild than what you might be expecting.

We used Irish Pig for a family reunion this summer. Delivery was prompt, food was hot and delicious. Besides the pulled pork (which I ate as left overs for three days in a row!) I would highly recommend their cole slaw.

This place is under rated! I've been here several times, bbq has been great every time. Bbq pork shoulder & ribs are seasoned just right. Also their baked beans are to die for! I think it's their specialty item!!!!! Reasonably priced as well.

She asked me if it was to go and because it was,she suggested I take the two sandwiches with two sides each. Everything was very good it came with... More

We ordered from Irish Pig when family was over because we wanted to try somewhere new. No one was overly impressed with their food (pulled pork, ribs, brisket were a few of the items we ordered) but everyone agreed the garlic fries were very good. Easily the best part of the meal! I think I like the pulled pork better... More

I used them to cater a luncheon for 30 people and everyone loved the bbq, coleslaw and potato salad. The owner was very easy to work with and very helpful with portions. I would use this place again.
