Reviewed July 21, 2012

What an enjoyable evening! Visited the Blu Pig for dinner and a drink Wednesday evening. The place was hopping! There were 4 or 5 musicians jamming to blues music and the energy was great. We enjoyed the best lip-smacking gumbo this side of Mississippi! The cold drinks were tasty and the service was friendly and fast. I’ve been traveling a lot lately and it was nice to hear some down-home blues music, relax and have a great time and scrumptious food. You will feel comfortable here; coming off the river or hike or taking your honey out on the town! Going back for more on Saturday night!

“Our roller coaster meal at The Blu Pig sadly started and ended downhill.”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

The initial seating blunder was a bad omen than should have scared us away. With a half empty restaurant in front of us, they told is we had a 20 minute wait. Yet we gave them the benefit of the doubt and soldiered on after only waiting 5 minutes.  Our hopes were once again restored when we saw the decor and general ambiance were very appropriate for a BBQ joint. Our charismatic waiter brought drinks and free cookies for my toddler right off the bat. He answered our questions and took our order in a timely manner.  There were a lot of good options on the menu. Sadly, this is where it all went downhill. The food was terrible. My husband had ribs that were meaty and smothered in yummy sauce. Yet the meat was so dry his jaw was sore from chewing! My BBQ was okay, but nothing I even bothered to finish. After dropping off our food, we didn't see our waiter again until he came with the check, so we couldn't say anything about our disappointing food. We had a coupon which he struggled to apply to the check. We left without getting full and feeling like we overpaid, even with a coupon.

“pass on this place”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

We had been directed to this place by the Moab Inn. Mistake - the food was possibly the worst we had during our 14 day Rockies trip. Expensive for what we had. Add to this the in your face service from David from Atlanta. Not a pleasant evening

“Unexpected delight”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

Stayed overnight in Moab and we were directed to the Blu Pig as a good barbeque restaurant.........they were right. Good food, great music, excellent service and a huge menu made this a very delightful evening.
