“Great Mexican food!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2009

This place is a must when visiting Jackson. I had the rice bowl with grilled shrimp and it was fantastic. Even the chips and salsa were very good. We were there in the afternoon and had no trouble getting a table.

“Surprise Find in WY”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2009

We stumbled across the Merry Piglets while planning to eat at Teton Thai, which was closed. The restaurant was packed, and the food smelled great so we decided to stop in. We did have to wait a bit for a table, but after eating there I can understand why. The guacamole was very good, chips and salsa were fresh and seem house prepared. All entrees were excellent. Warning: Portions are huge! Each one is enough for two people, making this a cheap meal.

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2009

What a great place to eat -the review were correct. We had a wonderful meal and even with a large party in we were well looked after. The meals were huge and we couldn't eat it all-so we took some of it away with us- I don't know how we managed to walk to the car !!!

“Great food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2009

We ate an early dinner here about 5pm. Restaurant was about 3/4 full. Chips were hot and crispy, very delicious. The salsa was homemade and very good. Fish tacos were yummy. My husband didn't love the sauce on it, he wished it was spicier. Shrimp tacos were also very good. Our service was fine. Waitress was nice, prompt, refilled chipbowl quickly(and we went through chips several times!). Food did take about 15-20 minutes to come out(if I had to guess the timing). But we didn't mind, we just ate the chips and drank our beer. Our kids also enjoyed this restaurant.
My advice would be to come early or late for dinner. There also was a line for lunch, so I would probably come on off hours if you wanted to eat lunch there. Definitely worth it- a fun, cute little restaurant.

“Don't Waste Your Time!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2009

We were looking forward to a nice dinner, and boy were we surprised! I was appalled at the treatment my party and I received at Merry Piglets. Our party of eight arrived at 4:15 p.m. for dinner. The restaurant was barely half-full. We were told it would be a 15-minute wait at the most. We were the only party on the wait list. Forty-five minutes later, after we saw numerous large parties who arrived after us get seated, we politely asked the hostess when we would be seated. She was extremely rude and gave us numerous lame excuses why we had to wait, even after we offered to split up our party. The manager then approached and informed us that they would not seat our party at two tables next to each other because it would involved two different waitresses. She then said she had no idea when we would be seated, and that we should probably consider returning another day. We promptly left, went to Gun Barrel, and had a great dinner. We didn't have to wait long, and the food and service were outstanding. Skip the Merry Piglets. Spend your money on a restaurant that truly appreciates your business.
