Smoking pig is worth getting off 85 for. Great Bbq right next to Clemson. Order at the front and grab a seat. The can handle the crowd too with a comfortable outside waiting area. Service is great too. Don't miss this Clemson favorite!!

A must visit anytime we are near Clemson, and it is close to the weekend- only open Thursday, Friday, Saturday. We are never disappointed. This time we ordered glazed ribs, and brisket - delicious. We loved the sweet potato crunch!

Not the best BBQ I've ever had but definitely in the top 3 places. Great selection. Some items sell out faster than others (ex: ribs, brisket) depending on time of day and day you go. Roll included in platter is so good, as well as...More

Stopped in for lunch while visiting Clemson University with my son. You order at the counter and a waitress brings your food to your table within minutes. I ordered the chopped BBQ plate (pork) with fried okra and slaw. I also added in a banana...More

We had heard about this place, and the reviews were promising, so we drove from Clemson for dinner to see what it was all about. It is VERY casual, almost picnic table casual, but that is part of its charm. I do not like meats...More

I'm not sure about the details but I've had their catering on numerous occasions (most recent experience was Dec 2016) & have never been disappointed! it's always busy so I think the sooner you contact them, the better.
