Description: 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.

We stopped at the new site by the San Jose Airport and Avaya stadium for a quick bite knowing we love the food from the location in downtown San Jose. Quality is just as good, we powered through the appetizer menu, Burnt ends were awesome, chicken lollipops, Wolf turds all yummy. Quick and good service. Nice part is they have a bar here too. Seating is limited but ok as is parking, better than the downtown location. Have never been to the Fremont location. So recommended as a step above Armadillo Willys, a bit pricier than Famous Daves.

We love coming here.... great BBQ! Parking lot gets full pretty quick, but the food is very tasty. Family favorite is the bacon wrapped chicken... mmmmm!

And there's bowling at 4th Street just a little further down the road to work it off... !

Looking for authentic BBQ where sauce is not the only flavoring then the Smoking Pig is your answer. Been a number of times and each time it only got better. Interesting sides, burgoo, and a bacon wrapped Jalapeno's - all good!

Great BBQ and sides. There wasn't anything that we ordered that we didn't gobble down. The Wolf Turds and Nachos were awesome and then the burnt ends... You won't leave hungry.
