“BBQ Heaven in Cherry Grove!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2012

The Screamin Pig has just opened this year and we have been 3 times already! My husband and I both like the Brisket sandwiches. We also like the barbecue "egg" roll as an appetizer...They smoke everything onsite. The people / staff have always been friendly. It is not a restaurant that you want to get dressed up for, but it is a great place when you are coming off the beach or taking a Sunday ride on your motorcycle and want to eat good barbecue. It is really good...trust me....

“Best BBQ in North Mrytle Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2012

Incredible meal we went with 13 people and they could not stop talking about how good it was. The BBQ egg rolls were a huge hit. There are 4 sauces to choose from each one better than the next. The Screaming Pig is everything you would want from a roadside BBQ and more. We are from western pa and the best ribs you can find in our area are from a place called DJ’s in WV. They better hope that the Screaming pig does not come north because they will put DJ’s out of business. The Screaming Pig is a must if you are looking for great BBQ at a reasonable price.

“Don't let outside fool you”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2012

A wonderful BBQ dinner. Don't come on a tight time schedule as there are only 2 people working. The food is worth the wait! The BBQ egg rolls were wonderful. Everything is made on sight. Great find. Only down side was soft drinks are in botlles so no refills

“Looking forward to going back!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2012

Been waiting for some decent food options to be available in myrtle beach. If you've ever visited you know that good quality food options are few and far between. Well out of the 6,000 options I only have two where I look forward to going back. This place would be one of the two. The pulled pork egg roll might be one of the best things I have ever eaten ever. If you go get one you won't be disappointed. The pulled pork nachos are another winner! Burgers were solid and you could tell they were made to order not some frozen slop. You can tell that this place takes pride in doing things the right way and they are a welcomed addition to the north Myrtle beach cherry grove area!

“Good Q”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2012

Our family ate here twice during our vacation June 16-23. The first visit we all had something different. Brisket was as good as Rudy's from Austin, TX. Not as smokey, but moist and tender. Pulled pork was awesome. Nice flavor and they have wonderful types of sauce if you want. Home cut fries were good, better on the second visit as they came out hot. Mac - n - cheese where out of this world. My daughters both thought the cheeseburgers were the bomb! Almost forgot, the fried okra was so good, we all had an order.

Now, a bit of advice for the owner. Are you trying to be a biker bar? We would have never stopped in to eat with the look you present from the street. Our rental home had one of your flyer's and a recommendation from the owner. Hogs are cool and bikers have money to spend, but families will not stop if the front is taken up by rough looking bikers drinking beer.

On the first night we had supper at your place, the front desk/counter girl had a young child sitting in the eating area, playing with his stuffed animal. Had to ask the mother to have the kid leave the large table so our party of 6 could sit and eat. Kid got up and sat at the frint counter to play Day Care and BBQ?

Last observation: Why have the order taker scream out the order to the kitchen located 2 feet from the register? Your dining area rings with the wonderful sound of "Got a burger, fries and a brisket plate order!" in the 15 x 20 foot space. Going to start calling the counter girls "Flo".
