We stopped into Where Pigs Fly because this is one of my daughter’s favorite restaurants in Dover. They enjoyed and shared the ribs while I ordered on the lighter side of the menu. I ordered the cream of crab but they had just run out....More

If you want a place to chill and eat delicious food...this is it! My grandsons loved the decor of pigs and the tasty hot dogs. The adults enjoyed the pulled pork and broccoli salad. Yummmmmm!

The portions were very generous and presented well. Plenty of good flavored sauce to go over fresh and moist meat. The cornbread is outrageously tasty. And, don't forget the potato salad. The waitress, although very busy, always made a minute to see how we were...More
