I dine here about every three months. The food is ok, sometimes may not seem fresh. The service is good, very friendly staff. Reasonable prices.

This is our favorite BBQ place; we've been eating here for years and love their BBQ sandwiches and onion rings. Our now-adult children have fond memories of eating at "The Pig" over the years.

Little pricey - everything is an add on. When you order a 'basket' you get a burger, very few fries and you pay an extra $2.95 for the fries. The burger is already like $5 and when you add the rest to it, fries and coleslaw it's easily cost $10. Burger is not a 1/2 thick or anything like that... More

I have been to Roberts several times in my trips to the Chas. area, and they offer a good sweet BBQ with a mustard base along with several other options.

The food was so bad we had to throw it away and leave. I ordered a cheeseburger and my husband ordered a bbq sandwich. The bbq sandwich was over sweetened and a low grade pork. I'm not sure what meat they used for my cheeseburger but it should be illegal. We aren't trying to be jerks, we just don't want... More

Yummy! This place has been around forever and remains my favorite for a barbecue sandwich and onion rings. The atmosphere isnt much, but the food more than makes up for it.

Sometimes you just need a great tasting, juicy burger with onions rings & fries in your life. Or perhaps a Barbeque Sandwich. For me, I needed their ALL Meat Club with Turkey, Ham, Roast Beef, AND Bacon, with a side of Onion Rings & Fries. It's always hard to decide between their perfectly brewed/made Sweet Tea or Lemonade.
