The BBQ and/or Brisket sandwich was $7.50 and included two sides. The desserts were fabulous and homemade. Beer and wine are also offered. Worth the drive to give this fabulous place... More

A local gem that sits on a small airstrip. Pilots fly in to eat here, and I completely understand why. The food is excellent - homemade sauces are outstanding. Atmosphere is great and wait staff is great - down to earth and personable. Never had a bad meal here. Side note: They only serve ribs on Saturdays, and you have... More

A group Of Can Am Spyder riders went to the Pik N Pig on a Sunday ride. It was a very cool destination. It is a small airport. You get to eat great BBQ and watch small planes take off and land

The food is great! The service is outstanding. Watching the planes arrive and depart is just an additional bonus. they are very nice to grandchildren. My son- in- law from the north loves BBQue and pulled pork and sweet tea. He tries every type he can find when he comes back to NC. This was one of the best ever!

Fun place where you can watch small airplanes take off & land as it is right next to a small air field. The Best BBQ. Casual setting & everyone is friendly.

We had heard about this place for some time from our son and decided to make the trip to give it a try ourselves. We were not disappointed. The veges were very good and the meat outstanding. We personally loved the fried okra and the smoked turkey sandwich. The beef brisket was wonderful as well, although we would have preferred... More
