We tried this place three times, really wanting to like it, but it's just awful. We tried the BBQ, the catfish, everything ... and none of it was even "almost good." The mac & cheese was inedible. We give up!

BBQ is very good. They have BBQ plates you can get that come with beans, slaw and French fries. Catfish plates are also great.

This place serves the best BBQ and ribs in our local area. Friendly staff, great value as they don't hold back on the food amount because you will want to eat all they give you...as its that good. Fast turnaround on your orders rather it dine in or carry out. Highly recommended. Thank you.

The barbecue chicken was shredded and covered with barbecue sauce. The potato salad was not very tasty and the green beans contained pieces of potatoes. In my opinion this was not very good barbecue.

The food was ok but there were flies around bothering me and my family while eating. That was like in April 2012.

Little Porkeys has moved 1/2 block off Hwy. 51 S on Mueller Brass Road. The menu has expanded to include, of all things a Bar-B-Que Burrito! Baked beans, slaw and bbq wrapped in a hugh tortilla. Really good. The BBQ is as good as it ever has been. A sports bar is coming on one side of the restaurant.

This place used to be outstanding when it was a stand alone spot. They recently moved, however, because their building burned and they lost their lease. They are now in a semi-temporary spot about a 1/2 mile down the road. I spoke to the owner, a guy name Steve, who seemed to be super nice. Best BBQ in the area.... More 

Thank Greg C
