We love eating local and piggyback bbq is a great example why. The amazing sandwiches and ribs keep us coming back when we our on vacation. I might have to order some to take home.

We found this resturant in whitefish and loved it. We like it so much we stopped again on our way back from Banff. Very inexpensive (under $20 for two) but exceptional. Not fancy but very good food. One of the highlights of a trip that included great lunches at the Banff springs Fairmont and the Lake Louise Fairmont---which were much more expensive. Brisket is one of the best I have ever tasted.

Choosing this "restaurant" was the worst mistake of our 10 day trip to Whitefish!! The food was marginal to poor at best and the service was poor. BUT OMG THE FLIES!!!! We were afraid to open our mouths wide enough to take a bit for fear we would have a fly in our mouth. It was the most flies any of us had ever seen indoors. We had a group of 5 adults and no one in the group had ever encountered anything like that even at an outdoor events.

We passed their building everyday on our daily outings and someone in the group commented on it every single time we passed.

I apologize sincerely for the issue with the flies, this is the worst fly and hornet season we have seen in years. Our doors open and close all day long with our outdoor seating and we try to manage the flow as much as possible but at times it can become an overwhelming issue. We have taken measures throughout the summer to keep these issues under reasonable control. I assure you our establishment is a safe and very clean facility. I regret your poor experience and would be happy discuss further with you what it would take to resolve the issue personally. Please feel free to contact the store and ask for the owner to discuss further.

I eat pulled pork sandwiches everywhere I can find them - Texas, the Carolinas, Tennesee etc.
This sandwich was not good - dry, no flavor, etc. The sides were not great either. It's a cute place and well known but, we won't go back.

This restaurant is very casual. Meals are served on paper plates and the picnic tables outside are similar to the furniture inside. The food is good but not outstanding. The presentation is, well - not great. And for the price this is all okay as long as your expectations are in line with what you will get, you'll be fine.
We only went once and that was enough. It was okay but didn't leave us wanting to eat there repeatedly.
The service on the otherhand was outstanding! Our server was pleasant and unflappably handled the orders for the entire restaurant by herself, for the whole hour and a half we were there. We tipped extra large just for the show. She was amazing.
