Sorry to say that I didn't like the Bar-B-Q because it was chopped into tiny little pieces. However to be fair, the hush-puppies were the best I have ever had. The staff was so helpful and friendly.

Away from downtown but worth the visit for excellent pulled pork at a great value. Comfortable atmosphere and some of the best hush puppies ever! Friendly service too.

Visiting Asheville and had to try Little Pigs based on the reviews I read. This place has the BEST broasted chicken I've every eaten. Moist and juicy, yet crispy on the outside. The hush puppies are also some of the best. My husband had the...More

Go for the sandwich (with sauce and slaw of course) and the hush puppies. Both are fabulous. Good onion rings. Forget the beans.

Simple place. Paper plates and great take out. Many people eating here when we did, but the line kept moving. Staff checked on diners throughout dinner. Whole family enjoyed the food.

Very mediocre. Not advised for true BBQ lovers. The chopped pork was mundane, very little smoked flavor, could have been oven roasted instead of smoked or fire roasted. very ordinary, Beans were terrible, tasted like they were straight from the can. Sauce was not very good. Best thing on my plate were the Hush Puppies. They were really good. I won't be goung back
