This is great casual dining at its best. We were seated in the front part of the restaurant and it has its charm with graffitied walls. The food was great! I tried the combo with the pulled pork and sliced brisket. Both were fork tender, flavorful, and really didn't need any sauce added to them! I had the fried okra... More

We found The Smokin' Pig a few years ago before they had such a huge following. They have some of the best BBQ anywhere. The parking lot is usually packed on the weekend and the line for the to go wagon can be long but the BBQ is worth it.

Stopped in for a bite to eat after golf. Boy was I glad we did the Beef Brisket just melted in your mouth. The décor was just very simple but the food was excellent would highly recommend. I got the smaller potion meal and still had more than I could eat.

The Smokin' Pig is an amazing BBQ joint! We live locally and eat here almost every Friday night...our weekend treat. And, yes, the wait is absolutely worth it. Just bring a deck of cards to pass the time and get ready to have some of the best food you've ever tasted! The jalapeño cheese grits, potato casserole, and sweet potato... More

I have had bbq all over South Carolina, and all over the nation, and Smokin Pig is by far the best. Fox bros in ATL is only place that can compete w quality of food. Try this place and you be bustin _____ for the next hour after eating it

Just off I 85 near Clemson, SC. There's a lot of good barbeque in this world, but not a lot of great barbeque places. This one is great. Atmosphere is family friendly, casual, relaxed. Service staff is attentive and friendly. I saw one spot cleaning a patrons shirt that got bbq sauce on it! Barbeque is excellent, lots of options... More

We ate here for the first time while passing through, it was recommended by a friend! It was great! I had the pork plate with potato salad and okra! All were delicious and that must have been the best potato salad I have ever had... Truly southern style! My husband had the Brisket sweet potato fries and grits ...of course... More

I actually visited here about 3 years ago, and haven't been back since. Although I am sure I will eventually. While the food is pretty descent.I found it to be one of the most unorganized places I have ever been. At peak times, customers don't form a line at the register to order. They just walk in and find a... More
