Great catfish plate

I've been going to Porkr's for 20 years and have never been disappointed! I love the catfish plate! Two pieces really means 4 fillets, so its a big serving. I don't eat pork but my buddies are very happy with the pulled pork. This is my second choice for BBQ.

Our group held a meeting here, so we were ordering as we straggled in. We fully intended to order BBQ, but before we could, one of our tablemates' order of catfish came out. It looked really good, so we both ordered fish. What we saw is what we got, really good fish and sides. Honestly, there are several catfish houses... More

Friendly folks and good food. The BBQ is super, but try the catfish. Two pieces should satisfy your hunger.

We ate here due to a recommendation from a staff person at our hotel. She said it had great catfish. My husband likes catfish, but I'm not a fish person so I ordered barbeque beef. It was a huge serving, but the taste was off. I only ate a small amount, picking through to find pieces that didn't taste strange.... More

I dread giving bad reviews. I had the chopped beef sandwich. My wife had the sliced beef. It was half fat and could barely cut it with the knife we had to ask for. I am glad mine was chopped, because I would have never been able to chew it. No flavor. Tough. The bun was toaster to a nice...crunch.... More

The staff seemed distracted by talking to other customers and I had to repeat my order due to it. The barbeque pork was adequate, nothing to write home about. The brisket was better. Plenty of sides to choose from. Again, adequate and not overly flavorful. but large helpings. Baked items were extra and VERY pricey. 7.50 for a dozen cookies!... More

This down home restaurant is like a breath of fresh air amongst the chain restaurants that surround it. Great pulled pork sandwich. Potato salad is homemade. Giant sized iced tea. Would highly recommend this place.

Don't waste your time on the BBQ. Get the catfish. It. Is. AWESOME. I'm am beyond picky when it comes to catfish because I don't want the muddy taste that I can't seem to get away from. But not at Porky's! That stuff is legit!

Love the fish plates, the bake potatoes are huge, brown beefs are good. The prices are excellent. Not a fancy place but the service is good.

My brother-in-law and his wife took my wife and I here. The FRIED catfish and smoked Turkey were well & and properly prepared. The Pie for dessert was wonderful.
