This is a simple little place with great BBQ. We shared the brisket and the large portion was enough for the both of us. Delicious. My son had the pulled pork and loved it...and he's a bit of a BBQ snob. Finding The Irish PIg is a bit tricky, but worth it. Enjoy.

I remember the pulled pork dinner I ordered could have been more appetizing but I kept seeing flies flying around the counter top. I had my food to go because I didn't want to see another fly on my plate. Hopefully the fly situation has been taken care off. Parking is available.

This place is awesome. We have been planning on trying this place for awhile now. Drive by every day. Well now it will be one of our frequent places to visit. The food was great. Large generous portions and extremely helpful wait staff. Went above and beyond to make our visit a great experience. I had pulled pork with sweet... More

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.
