We went here for lunch. The pulled pork sandwich, cole slaw, and corn nuggets are delicious!! I especially loved the sweet sauce! They were very friendly too.

My husband and I eat at When Pigs Fly every Wednesday for BBQ and wings day. We like the messed up wing sauce and homemade ranch dressing with our meals. Kristin makes all her dressings and BBQ sauces homemade and you can taste the difference....More

I give a 4 instead of a 5 only because they were out of ribs and several of us wanted ribs. The food was great. Atmosphere was nice. Everyone was nice. The sweet tea was very good.
