Once again, we were driving across South Carolina and took a lunch break in the Columbia area. This time we chose Maurice’s Piggy Park off the interstate in Irmo. This was not our first visit but it was the best. First, the restaurant is easily accessible from I-26. Second, it has a very appealing brick barn style and, third, the food was great. You order from a counter and get your own drinks then the meal is brought to your table. We each had a Little Joe plate which featured a pulled-pork sandwich, fries, slaw and a couple of wonderful hush puppies. Gin added a side of the best fried okra we have had in a long while. The meat was excellent and there was a variety soft sauce options, although the mustard based is the favorite here. Our food was great. Also, the service was fast and friendly. We will stop at Piggy Park again.

With so many barbecue places closed Sunday through Wednesday in South Carolina, we were so thankful that this local, mini-chain of Maurice's is open to us road-weary travelers.It was good, not great; the mustard-based hot sauce was a bit overwhelming in flavor, portions were large, service is friendly, the fried okra was overly salty, and we enjoyed the white beans in spiced-up white vinegar. There is take-out, catering, pre-packaged pulled chicken, pork, etc and, of course, hot sauces that you can purchase before you get back on the road. You can't miss the giant Piggie welcoming you in, so park under the 50's-looking carports, and order up at the counter for some of this Maurice's little Piggie that went to market....

Wanted try their barbecue hash. Had a barbecue plate and hash as a side. Barbecue was good, but the hash wasn’t what I expected. It was okay, but nothing I would order again. Barbecue was good. They have a variety of sauces. Mustard base was my favorite. Sides were average.

Just not what I am use to.
