Ate BBQ sandwich at Little Pig BBQ in Greenville, SC in the past, assumed they used the same recipes in Asheville, NC. Tried the Ribs and Broasted Chicken, with slaw and potato salad. The slaw is very dry, and not sweet enough, and the potato salad is very bland. The ribs is the worst I ever had, drowned in a not too tasty sauce. A store bought sauce in a slow cooker would have tasted better. The chicken is a pleasant surprise, crunchy on the outside and juicy and moist on the inside, that is why they still get an average 3 star rating.

It would have been nice to have a cold beer with my BBQ but that was fine as the BBQ was great. I don't know about the 'grease' the other review mentioned. My large pulled pork platter was basically dry pulled pork. No grease what-so-ever. Nice clean restaurant located on the hillside between the Biltmore Estates and Mission Hospital, so there is a little bit of traffic to deal with, but Little Pigs has ample amount parking. I would definitely go there again or you can go to Ruth Chris/Texas Roadhouse/ and our favorite chain McDonalds down the street. Get some original NC bbq!

Very casual dining with ordering at the counter. Quick service and good value. I appreciate any BBQ south of the Mason Dixon Line and this place didn't disappoint.
