“The experience was worth the trek East of Stone Mountain from Atlanta”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

In a lot of gas station mini-marts you may find small-footprint franchise outlets of major chains (Subway, Togo's, various fast food chains). Here at the mini-mart of the Shell station on Five Forks Trickum Road is the Tipsy Pig BBQ. You order your meat and sides and beverage; walk across the store to the main gas station cash register to pay; and return to the BBQ counter with your stamped receipt.

We had made the trek out from Atlanta to climb the trail to the top of Stone Mountain and were looking for a BBQ place in the area. Lilburn is a few miles East of the park so it was within striking distance. Some of us ordered more successfully than others; that is, we took bites of each others' lunch orders and sometimes said, "man, I wish I'd ordered that". But for all of us the atmosphere was fun, the service was cordial and welcoming, and it will be fun to come back. And I know what I'm ordering next time: the pulled pork sandwich.
