My husband and I stopped in while traveling and really enjoyed our dinner. The platter for two was a great way to try different things. My favorite by far was the chicken and he loved the ribs and cornbread. We will be back!

The Iron Pig Smokehouse is the "real deal". I'm a big fan of brisket and The Iron Pig didn't disappoint. If you happen to be in the area and are craving delicious smoked meat, you should pay them a visit.
