We tried the food out from these guys while they were at the Kauai Beer Company for their truck stop Thursday. They definitely know how to do pig. The wife had the bbq pork sandwhich which was too big for her to pick up as a whole and sloppy as all get out. The mess was worth it though since the meat was cooked perfectly and the slaw was on point. I had the sandwich that had a breaded pork cutlet, pulled pork, and home made bacon on it. It was crazy good. We also had some of their fried mac and cheese to finish off the remainder of our arteries that hadnt clogged yet. If you like the swine, this is where to dine.

Went to Green Pig for a late lunch. Had the porkaholic sandwich (pork cutlet, pulled pork and bacon) and pig tails (shoestring curly fries). Wife had pulled pork sandwich with coleslaw on the side. Son had chicken fried chicken sandwich. The porkaholic sandwich is BIG and delicious. The house (truck) made bacon is incredible. The fries were yucky. Really greasy. Pulled Pork sandwich got good reviews. Tried a bite of the slaw. I usually run away from coleslaw, but this was awesome. Made with vinaigrette instead of dripping with mayo. Highly recommended, but would avoid the fries and get the fried mac 'n' cheese next time instead. With drinks, we spent about $45 for three. Food is expensive in Kauai, so not a bad deal for a good amount of food. We paid cash, but sign said they take Visa and MC (not Amex). Enjoy!

Checked out the green pig after reading some reviews. Had porkaholic sandwich and fried Mac n cheese. Omg...this is fantastic food. I wish I had more time and better metabolism as I would go again in a heartbeat.

Definitely recommend this green pig. Check on open times though.

We discovered The Green Pig at the Taste of Hawaii event. The fried mac 'n' cheese was amazing! We enjoyed the open face pork sliders as well, but went back more than once for the mac 'n' cheese. Wish we could have made it back to their truck to try more of their menu.

We really liked it! Our first visit to the Green Pig and the great write-ups brought us there. Skip had the Pig-aHolic sandwich with pork tenderloin, pulled pork and Jake's bacon (aka, Jacon). He was in Seventh Heaven and I'll confess that having read about the fried Mac n' Cheese, we couldn't resist. I had the Pork tenderloin SW and it was delicious. It was pouring with rain but we were nice and dry under the tents....Good thing we aren't staying closer or Skip would be there every day!
