At every here twice! And twice. Had the Pork Ribs and fried okra. Okra is outstanding and the Ribs fall off the bones! The local beer is worth a try too. The only thing I would suggest...less salt.

The Pig is known in Chapel Hill as one of the better BBQ places (top 10). The line gets kind of long during the rush and their system leaves a little to be desired on the customer service side. There is only one person taking...More

I wanted eastern nc bbq. It was not good. Did not seem fresh. The fried green tomatoes were like hockey pucks. Most dishes way salty. Hush puppies look like funnel cake and are greasy. Staff very pleasant. They get the 2 stars.

You will not find better "Eastern" (vinegar-based) BBQ; we know, we've tried just about all the establishments out to the coast. The "sauce" itself is particularly good and they use it to just about the right amount. There's more on the table and there's some...More

The BBQ is decent but there is certainly better around Chapel Hill. The sides however are great. The people there are really nice, however.

We are from out of town and wanted some BBQ and The Pig had good reviews. The reviews weren't wrong!!! It's a small place, with a casual (do it yourself) flare. You walk up to the counter and order and then they bring you your...More

I believe it is Lonerider Shotgun Betty Hefeweizen. I'd call The Pig just to be sure. The website for the brewing company is Loneriderbeer.
