“Great smoked ribs!”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

The smoked food was great but you don't get much food. You get either a little cup of potato salad or a bag of chips with your food. If you could have got french fries or a baked potato etc + some vegetables with your smoked meet we would have been back!

“Closed”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

This location is closed and moved to The Ranch House on Highway 5 north. I haven't eaten at the new location (and probably won't) so I can't critique the food. The BBQ at the former location was very, very sweet if you used their sauce. I like Memphis style BBQ so I go to KT's in Gassville.

“Nice but felt out of place”
Reviewed January 27, 2012

We worked on planning a family member's wedding here while eating a nosh. Food was great. A little limited in the seating department and we felt a little awkward since many of the other's seem to be frequent flyers. Overall though good food for a decent price.

“$21.00 for 2 BBQ sandwiches!”
Reviewed January 18, 2012

Over priced for sure! This is not good BBQ. Lots of fat, tough. I grew up eating Memphis BBQ and was really excited when I saw the blu pig open, but very disapointed after eating there. I even gave them a second chance! Dummy! Try KT's in gassville. Excellent.

“It may not be the best BBQ in the world, but it IS very good.”
Reviewed November 6, 2011

This place is located a short drive east of Mtn. Home, near Lake Norfork. The owners have done a good job of creating a cool-sorta' funky ambience. They play some good tunes and, sometimes, some live music.
They do a good rib, but my favorite item is their brisket; very moist-just like I like it.
Friendly service & good food in a neat facility-priced about right. If you're in the mood for BBQ, the Blue Pig won't disappoint you.
