We had originally intended to go to another BBQ place on the Monday night on our last night in Vernon. However, we found out it was closed!

So we just randomly chose The Naked Pig. What a pleasant surprise!

The service was awesome, the BBQ was great. They were very accomodating with my daughter's peanut allergy. They also gave her a chicken strip meal, with a side of corn dogs because she wanted to try them!

The food was good and the selection of BBQ sauces were nice. Overall we were full and very pleased with our mistake location.

I'd go back if I was in town again!

We stopped here for lunch and were not disappointed. Ate street side as the weather was perfect. We had the juicy pulled pork sliders, with both sea salted fries and yam fries – so tasty! A nice Long Island iced tea for me and a cold brew for the hubs rounded out the meal. The server was friendly and attentive.
I'd like to stop by Saturday am next time to try their famous coffee with brunch.

Been many times. Never disappointed - good food. Happy to serve when many restaurants in the vicinity are not interested. Better choice anyway - shame on us. Family friendly and highly recommend. And yes, we have had BBQ in some serious spots - these are no rookies.

This looked and smelled like a great place to go. The 5 of us, including a 9 year-old, went in around 5pm on a weekday. It was not busy.

Immediately it seemed as if the staff was disorganized, with no visible management. Our server was pleasant, but it was difficult to define the roles of other staff on the floor. One was a host, who spent a lot of time standing around.

Drinks took a very long time to arrive. The beer from the attached craft brewery was fresh and cold; reasonably priced. However watched another table's order sit in the pass-through for almost 10 minutes. While 4 staff members stood around and the cooks just stared at it.

The kids menu was pricey. We ordered the mac and cheese although our child wanted ribs. My in-laws ordered veggie burgers. My father in-law asked if the patties were dry; the server assured him they were the opposite.

My wife and I ordered a sample platter and we ordered some corn bread to start.

All the food arrived at the same time, and the corn bread arrived last.

Our sample platter included ribs, brisket, chicken, pulled pork, bratwurst and 2 pretzel buns. We chose baked beans, coleslaw and caesar salad as sides.

Ironically, the 2 salads were the best things.

The baked beans were dry and much more akin to kidney-bean refritos.
All of the meat was dry and over cooked.
There was NO bbq sauce provided!
The brisket was mostly unrendered fat.
The rub on the ribs was mostly paprika, making for a very dry and gritty taste.

And the veggie patties were indeed dry. When mentioned to the server, she made no effort to correct the problem.

I would not go back.
