“Delish. Awesome BBQ”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

Stopped by with the family on our way to the Winchester House and itt was a great decision. The spare ribs were tender and delish. The brisket was great. The building didn't look like much from outside but the wonderful aroma of yummy BBQ grabbed you by the nose and pulled you in ad soon as you got out of the car. A little more expensive than I'd hoped but I definitely don't regret the stop, so good! Family of five equaled ten thumbs up.

Hey, thanks for the great review. Yeah, prices are nuts right now. There's a ton of stuff happening to all food which is raising the prices very rapidly. It will probably continue thru the summer, unfortunately, before we see some relief later in the year (hopefully). We're working as hard as possible with our vendors to keep the prices down, but it's going to be impossible to avoid this thing affecting us all. Thanks for coming in and "keep the faith"!

“Nice place with excellent food”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

It's typical American BBQ place. Very friendly service. Pork Spare Ribs were fantastic and Beef brisket was good. Knocking down one star for not having draft beer.

Thanks for the nice review! We really appreciate it. The only reason we don't have beer on tap is that at this current location we have no room for kegs. Our location in Fremont has 16 beers on tap and a full bar. Hope to see you again soon!

“Best BBQ in South Bay”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

I have been to the Smoking Pig several times for lunch and it's always packed. The "Wolf Turds" are incredible as well as the pulled pork & mac and cheese. They have 3 completely different types of BBQ sauce are of which are fantastic. I have tried several other BBQ places in the South Bay, but this one is THE BEST.

“Get Your BBQ on Here”
Reviewed May 21, 2014

Okay; any place with the nerve to serve "WolfeTurds" is on my fine BBQ list. Right after you finish the "Turds" have the "Tips" and the the "Brisket Sammy" with the Mac-n-Cheese side and a cornbread muff. Yeah that's what I'm taken about. Finger and forearm lick'n gooood!
