While staying in whitefish we decided to try piggyback at the end of a long day of hiking. The reviews on trip advisor were pretty good and we wanted to give it a try. My wife was not very hungry so she had the chili and said that it was very good. I think my eyes were bigger than my... More

Great menu of family style barbeque. Great value and great portions. Clean dining area. Smokers are in eye view from your table. Wish you had a location back in Massachusetts!

This was a great place for dinner. The barbeque was delicious! The portions were more than we could finish. I liked that the sauce was served on the side so I could taste the smoke.

If you like ribs, this is the place to go! Highlight of our trip. Small but friendly and the food is great. The pulled pork sandwich is to die for! Wish I lived closer.

My husband was very happy with his 2-meat plate, but I made the mistake of ordering chicken. It was not thoroughly cooked (and I mean cold pink at the bone) and I had to send it back. I think the cook then dumped it into a fryer so when it was returned to me it was inedible. At that point... More

Great BBQ place. Affordable, which is rare for BBQ. Fried okra, potato chips were really good. The butter for the cornbread was Amazing. Staff was friendly and service was fast. Important when you have a cranky 3 year old to feed.

The food was average. I wasn't impressed with the flavor and the meat was a bit dry. I am sure we will try it again, but it won't be because of our first impression. When we took our seats outside there were three empty tables where the dishes and food from the previous patrons was still sitting on their tables.... More

This was my favorite meal in Whitefish. I appreciate that the meat was served with the sauce on the side so you can taste the barbecue. My wife and I ordered the sampler and had enough left over for a nice lunch the next day. Delicious!

We stumbled on this spot on the other side of the railroad tracks. It's tiny and As everyone has said it takes a while but the food is quite excellent and the staff very friendly . They offer lots of outdoor seating in good weather and I would say the portions are quite large..enough for tomorrow's lunch in the park.
