Not sure of the fuss over this place. Although seated quickly, the food was far from exciting. The wings were smoky flavor and good. The pulled pork croquet (3) were boring and served without garnish or dressing. The signature burger, topped with pulled pork and stringy bacon was indeed hefty, full of flavor but the bottom bread was stale and/or toasted too long and broke apart while I tried to eat it. The fries were undercooked and the baked beans should have been a miss! Service staff were pleasant enough, but slow and inexperienced. Shame we were celebrating a birthday,

Tasty moist ribs slathered in a delicious bbq sauce with great cocktails to wash them down. We were seated quickly on a Saturday evening and were surprised by the large portions served. This is a good option if you like a lot of meat.

We went along for some amazing ribs a couple of weeks a go. The American vibe restaurant is chilled out with friendly staff. The burgers looked delicious and the fries were tasty. I write a full review on my blog: http://www.littlelondongirl.co.uk/2014/04/little-porkers.html

Popped in last night (Tuesday) based on seeing it in Time Out magazine and wanted to eat something filling. Restuaruant was very quiet when we got there (apx 6:30), so we got a lovely table in the window. When we came to leave (8:15ish) it had become full, a good sign. To start we had the calamari- really good, nicely seasoned and not chewy, and the pulled pork croquettes, again well seasoned, got 3 big ones, potato croquettes with some pulled port in but enjoyable. For mains I had the pulled pork with a side of sweet potato fries and slaw. Very good sized portions and tasty food. Sweet potato fries were a really lovely alternative to normal fries. My boyfriend had the Porky burger with fries and macaroni cheese, burger looked delicious! Would definitely go again if in the Camden area, down from the market. Staff were friendly and helpful, all in all a lovely meal.

Walked in full of hope and left extremely disappointed. Limited lager choices and cocktails however what we had was ok. Me and my partner had pulled pork croquettes for starter which came out within 5 minutes of ordering showing to me these were already cooked! No flavour until we put on the vinegar and BBQ sauce provided (which were nice). I then had a burger with pulled pork, bacon and cheese with a side of sweet potato fries. This was so disappointing. Burger was overcooked and dry with no seasoning, the pulled pork had zero flavour and the chips had no seasoning - all in all completely bland. My partner had the 'slow cooked' pork ribs. When they came thank goodness they had a BBQ sauce over them otherwise you would not have been able to eat them due to how dry they were - no meat was falling off the bone like it should have been. Considering the limited selection of food in my opinion there is no excuse for it not to be cooked to perfection. Will not be returning!!!!
