Best BBQ I've ever had! I get the 1/2 chicken plate and my wife has been getting the pork chops. The smell and flavor makes your mouth water

Based on the recommendation from a family friend, we stopped in Anderson on our trip between Columbia, SC and Atlanta, GA. The Pompous Pig is a little hard to find. It is tucked into the back of a strip mall. However, if you are using a GPS device, you shouldn't have any trouble finding it. We sampled all of their... More

The BBQ is good and I believe they are open every day not just thurs-sat. The pretzel bum is great and their Sauces are very good. Pompous pig is one of the best in anderson.

We tried this restaurant for the first time and LOVED it. It was a little hard to find (shares the same building as a mattress store,) but I sure am glad we found it. The pulled pork was excellent. There were 4 sauces on each table, so there was something for everyone's taste. The mashed potato bake was soooo creamy... More

Doesn't look like much in a small strip mall, but the fun was outstanding. I had real brisket barbecue on Texas toast and it was fantastic. Definitely the place you want to go in Anderson.

We were camping nearby and always like to try local barbecue. You can smell the smoke as you drive into the parking lot. Unfortunately they were out of the ribs by the evening. Pulled pork was an excellent 2nd choice. We also tried the sausages, you get your choice of two. They are fairly small, but the pulled pork was... More

The absolute best BBQ in Anderson! In fact, quite possibly the best BBQ that I've ever had. Love the mac n cheese! The only set back is Sunday's. The hours are shorter. We went one Sunday around 2 (they close at 3) and they were out of almost everything.

I chose this place because of the reviews and I wanted some comfort food. The chopped pork was amazing and the fried okra was awesome. The baked beans was a little too tomatoey for my taste, but were good. I tried all four sauces that were on the table and my favorites were the sweet hickory and the apple cider.... More

Description
THE BEST BBQ! Smoked Pork, Ribs, Chicken, Beef Brisket and Sausages. The meats are smoked daily for 8 to 14 hours in our on-site BBQ Pit using a mixture of woods (Hickory, Pecan, White Oak) combined with unique blends of spices and rubs. Our traditional southern side dishes are cooked from scratch in-house each day. Come on by and visit us early 'cause when it's gone, IT'S GONE!
