Reviewed January 29, 2012

Had the small portion BBQ brisket. Was nicely done. Had the cole slaw and onion rings for sides. Both sides were tasty. Onion rings were greasy but really tasted good!

“Surprisingly small portions”
Reviewed January 17, 2012

It was OK - fast food, basis tables, surprisingly small portions - and no draft beer. Wouldn't rush back.

“Best BBQ around”
Reviewed January 9, 2012

We love Lil' Piggy's. I get the chicken sandwich and it's huge. It's so tender, the fries are hot and good and the sauces are just so yummy. It's very casual dining, you sit on picnic tables that you share with others but who cares. It's so good.

“Food not so great”
Reviewed January 8, 2012

I was hoping that a restaurant that specialized in pork would serve good pulled pork. However, that is not the case here. There was a lot of fat in the meat, it was too chunky, and an overall a disappointment. I had the sliders with pulled pork and a side of potato salad. The sandwiches were terrible but the potato salad was not too bad. There are many better places to choose from, which is why I say skip this place and try something else.
