As an overweight person, walking into a place named 4 pigs was a bit daunting. However, once those BAR-B-QUE ribs hit the table all worries left. The meat on those bones simply fell off. Two sides were included and I must recommend the Cole slaw. I know that sounds silly but good restaurant slaw is hard to find and this... More

Great owners, who cater as well as operate this family-owned small town restaurant with a warm smile and great service. Good family style barbecue, meals, specials, burgers and more. They have another building where larger groups can be served special buffets as catered events. Great place for special events or during holidays. Some of our friends go there for group... More

My wife and I choose this spot for our weekly breakfast. She orders the big boss hog meal and it usually takes about 5 minutes to get it fresh.

We had family in from out of town and when we walked in, I was embarrassed!! It was so gross! Flies were buzzing all over and fly traps were hanging everywhere, thats... More

Homestyle cooking and some of the best bbq around.. their sauce is some of the best! Kids love the Western Omelet and the burgers are delish as well.. This place can be crowded but they always make room for more... as evidenced by their namesake, they added a fourth pig! That will be you for sure - when you pig... More

One of the best breakfast places around. Everything done as ordered. Eggs were perfect. The no-smoking policy is very welcome.

4Pigs has taken over the coveted title of #1 BBQ in Benton, Ky. They have a wide variety of menu items. Plate lunches are very good. Usually very clean and servers are efficient. Their BBQ beats Hutchens hands down.

We got a late start looking for a location in the mid-week ... two other locations we tried were closed. This was our last try before turning to "fast-food". Fifteen minutes before closing and we were seated with an apology that they would be cleaning around us! No problem ... I know longer remember exactly what we had that evening,... More

This is a simple, no-frills, small town restaurant. They have all the normal sandwiches and sides, plus lots of extra offerings for their plate lunches, as well as barbeque. The food is good and the waitresses are friendly and helpful. But, locals inside treated the place like it was their own kitchen.They yelled out for drink refills and teased the... More
