This is a great place for a family dinner! The BBQ is excellent, the service is great and the atmosphere is like no other place. You are surrounded by pigs of all sizes! My parents used to go here in the 1950's for the same great BBQ!

Coming out of Harrisonburg headed for Mt. Jackson and drove past, saying 'I should stop". Well, seven miles later, I kicked myself and swung around and headed back. Another time that I got smart and stopped at what looked to be a great place. Great BBQ, lots of food for the money, typical southern fare, but taste certainly better than... More

Great for a no-fuss simple BBQ/southern meal. Picnic style serving with fun pig decorations throughout the building. Great flavors and quck services. One down side, the bathroom is outside around the back of the building.

The Sizzeling Rib Eye Steak was melt in your mouth Delicious. Best Steaks we ever had. OH So Tender and juicy. They offered cups and T-Shirts for sale which we bought.
