If you want to feel at home, see people from all walks of life enjoying themselves, and love traditional BBQ and/or ribs, this is the place for you. The barbeque is really exquisite (interesting word to use with BBQ, but it works!), and all of the sides are delicious. The fried chicken is so tasty that is also is worth... More

I've been going to Little Pigs for 35 years now and have always walked away happy and full! There are usually 3 types of barbecue to choose from (my favorite is the vinegar based) and plenty veggies too! Also, don't leave before you have the banana pudding. One more thing is the prices, cheaper than a lot of fast food... More

We had about 50 guests and had Little Pigs cater it for us. This was the third time we have used them and have always been pleased. The food is delicious, attractive, and easy to serve because it is packed so well. I do not hesitate to highly recommend them.

Definitely not the fanciest place one can go to, but the food was good and what is expected from a buffet?!? A lot of choices from the buffet and a person does not go away hungry. I was not too keen on the sauces - like mine a bit more sweet and thick, but worth checking out! The fish was... More

We were on a day trip & found this via internet. Cafeteria style lunch with multi selections: pork, chicken, turkey plus side dishes. Staff helpful and constantly refreshing dishes. Beverage & dessert included.

With all the warning signs blaring out the rules to obey in an area with too much food crowded together, skimpy little flimsy plates and the hoard trying to get to the trough...the food was adequate.
