After traveling for a few hours up to Boone, we checked into our cabin and then went out for kind of a late dinner. I had the pulled pork platter, and my wife had the brisket platter. Both were excellent and a lot of food. I had corn on the cob and green beans as a side - both were excellent - and my wife had baked beans and potato salad - also both were excellent. Our waiter, David, was very helpful, friendly, attentive and answered our questions. Highly recommend this restaurant! We also had our two children with us, very kid friendly and they have a kids menu.

This restaurant has really good bar-b-que and sides. Nice atmosphere and the portions were very large. Come with a healthy appetite.

Had a nice lunch here earlier in the month. Portion size was very solid and a basketful of hush puppies was a nice touch. Lots of sauce options, with a nice explanation of each. Pulled pork had a lot of bark in it and was a touch dry. But, plenty of sauce quickly remedied that.

Food portions are incredible. Menu had great choices. Restaurant was clean. Service was awful. Took us 15 minutes to even get recognized. I don't know the situation on this particular day as sometimes people call off, but it was just bad.

Just finished a BBQ sandwich from leftovers from the meal at the Pig yesterday. After discussions with the waiter we decided to order the sampler.... for 2. For us, should have ordered the Sampler for 1 and added an extra side or 2. But it was all very good. BBQ is always so subjective and everybody has an opinion! I've always leaned towards Texas for brisket but their brisket was very moist with a flavorful bark. The ribs were fall off the bones and the pulled pork was better than some. So, all in all some great BBQ. The sides were good (Mac & cheese, Okra, Green Beans, and great sweet potato fries). Would highly recommend and will be back.
