The food at Smoking Pig BBQ Company is good. Meat (spare ribs and chicken) was tender and not overly dry. The BBQ sauce was dry but not like what we had experienced in Memphis.

There are not a huge number of food choices, but everything is great. The meats are tender and flavorful. And I love the sauces they have on the table. Each is very different and if you like very hot and spicy, there's one for you,...More

We are a very casual BBQ "joint" in the traditional sense. The focus is on the food. Slow smoked meats, homemade sides, rubs, sauces and desserts. Friendly service, at home feel. Excellent beer and wine lists (no kidding). Genuine Southern BBQ. Everything made in-house. Our mission is your delight. We Cater too! 25 to 5000 people.
