If you find yourself travelling from Birmingham to Huntsville and are looking for a good meal in between, look no further than Porky's Pride! I, personally, am not a Bar BeQue person but this place has completely changed my mind. I ordered the Rib plate with baked beans and potato salad and had it completely finished in about 5 minutes....

Porky's BBQ is now under new management and let me say that the quality of the food has vastly improved. Don't get me wrong it was good before but now it is really good. The burgers are thick hand made and the hot wings are outstanding. They now make a smoked prime rib that they only serve on Friday and... More

My sisters and I and our mother were headed from Cullman to Birmingham and wanted to try out some local affair, so we found this place on Yelp and thought we would try it out. First off, our little waitress was just as nice as she could be, but she kept talking about her experience as a waitress, but I'm... More

Friendly family BBQ restaurant. Stopped in on 3 separate occasions on way back to Atlanta and had the pork, sausage, ribs, brisket (when available), and a hamburger, all have been very good. The BBQ is not swimming in sauce just a little on top with extra on the side that way you can taste the real flavor of the BBQ.... More

My husband, teenage son, & I flew into Birmingham for a family reunion. We arrived before our hotel room was ready so we asked for a good local place to have lunch. Porky's came highly recommended. What a pleasant surprise! It's a local "hole in the wall" but boy oh boy was it fantastic. The service was excellent. The owner's... More

I work down the street and used to come here when the old owners owned it and the new owners are great. The steaks are delicious and the pork sandwiches are great. I love the atmosphere and they make awesome drinks. Try the Vegas bomb they make a good one.

Price's to high for what you get. Small serving and poor service. Has changed owners and may have improved, but I am afraid to try it again.

We are continuing to grow both in quality and service but as with any business we will always have room to grow. I would love to have more... More

This restaurant totally fulfilled my expectations for a barbeque joint. It had the essential smell of smoke, looked a little rough on the outside, but inside, was very clean, and the staff mad you feel at home.. The pork is expertly prepared and just downrigt good. The portions are great, and absolutely one of the best barbeque joints I have... More
