All you can eat is always available. Barbeque, fried chicken , corn on the cob, everything is outstanding. A country fair buffet at its finest. If banana pudding and sweet tea are your favorites then you're in the right place! Get there early , it's always busy at meal time.

The restaurant has been there forever. The buffet has everything on it. The catering service is always reasonable, efficient and they give you lots of food. The owner "Champ" is awesome. Don't leave Columbia without trying one of the best.

Price includes your drink and dessert. A nice... More

At $8 per person, you get all you can eat buffet style. There is plenty to choose from. The only thing I don't like is that the tables are so full, that getting around is difficult sometimes. This is problematic when you want seconds..... and thirds. The only thing I absolutely hate about this place is the size of bathroom... More

I have to admit I do not go to the buffet at Little Pigs, simply because I can't do it justice. I love the BBQ, ribs, fried chicken, coleslaw, etc., but everything I've ordered has been delicious! I highly recommend the famous "rib rice", which I've never seen anywhere else. Be prepared to wait if you are dining in the... More
