Tambo's Pig Pen has closed. Was good when it was open. Not sure what happened. It is a loss to Elberta, AL

There is no such place in Elberta. Alabama. For this reason cannot say anything about as it doesn't exist.

We have enjoyed the bbq sandwiches several times. The prices are very reasonable, friendly staff and clean too! We are planning on trying some other options but that is for a future visit. Next to the corner where you turn for Barber Marine

My family has always loved Tambo's. Their Bar-B-Q and sides are delicious. My fiance loves the brisket, I'm partial to the pulled pork. They've got great beans. You definitely need to go by!
