A great location that serves up authentic southern BBQ. We have tried all the menu items and everything has always been fantastic. Go early or call ahead, his BBQ is in demand and sells out quick. Give this place a try, you will be happy that you did.

Really good BBQ. Eat in or take out. Quick service; choices of sauces; good sides. Easy access off of PA 61.

Ive been here 3 times in 2 weeks and it's always amazing! I love the brisket but just tried the pulled pork sandwich last time with the honey bbq sauce and its ridiculously awesome. The prices are very good.... I order a lot and usually hover around the $20 for 3 people. The only down side is that the mac... More

We were excited to stop for some BBQ in an area with few restaurants. It is on a spur off highway 61. We were stopping for Sunday lunch and checked out the board menu and their regular menu on Pink paper. It seemed to be the only thing pink in the place. We ordered a pulled pork sandwich and a...

Terrific pulled pork & brisket. Generous portions. A variety of barbecue sauces including horseradish. Very friendly and courteous staff. Energetic Pig mascot in the parking lot waving to everyone. Plain and clean inside with picnic tables. When in the area again, will definitely return!

Great place for quick (eat in or take out) really tasty barbecue. We've eaten barbeque in several "barbeque states" in the south - this is just as good & no long drive needed!

We just moved to the area so we are working our way thru the local eateries. This one has has a cute bright pink metal pig out front! And delicious food inside! I had the smoked bbq chicken & he had ribs. Both delicious. I got a piece of cornbread to try - I'm fussy about corn bread & this... More

This is the best BBQ that I've had in the area. The restaurant is not fancy but the staff is always fast and courteous.

I had been wanting to try this place for awhile. It was recommended by friends as being a unique BBQ place with a southern style menu in southern schuylkill county. Today, I made it through the doors. The appearance is deceiving. From the outside, it sits in a 1970's style small commercial building (the precursor to strip malls). However, it... More

We stopped a few times over 3 years and have increasingly been disappointed. Our LAST time was ordering BBQ and the waitress said, it will be a little bit, I need to get more out of the freezer. I'm not sure what days they actually BBQ, but it sure wasn't that Saturday. It has small seating and we always got... More
