My favourites are the smoke sausage, ribs, and corn bread. Very tasty and made with love. Like all BBQ, it gets cold fast, especially eating with disposal plates. Open only 4 days a week.

Although its slightly limited opening make getting a meal there a bit uncertain, it is so well worth it. I think it is the best or possibly the second best smokehouse in Western NY.

Fun casual spot for good Barbeque. The Piglets are a wonderful way to start, with the pulled-pork appetizers. Great cornbread too. The only negative, to me, was the plastic forks and knives. I may bring my own utensils next time we visit.

I saw a few reviews of this and decided to try it out. The food was good, the prices were very reasonable and was worth finding. It is a modest but nice.

A little bit out of the way, but worth finding. We had fantastic pulled pork, melt-in-the-mouth delicious brisket and crisp and delicious coleslaw. Skip the oven fries. Friendly table service. Real home cooked BBQ (They'll cater your wedding too)

Love everything I have gotten from there. Just keep in mind it's cash only. I love the salty hog for my lunch.

We ordered the two meat combo, brisket and pulled pork and our side was smoked smashed potatoes. The potatoes had no smokey flavour, they were just boiled with rub on them and some kind of butter. The meats were both good quality but again no hint of smoke. We will not be going back. This mediocre meal ended up costing... More
