Good barbecue but not the best in the area. Portion size is on the smaller side and sides are not as good.

I have eaten at plenty of barbecue place, but this one is heads above all of the other. The food is always fresh and the people are always friendly. You will have a variety of choice to choose from. They really deserves a six out of five. Conline to be blessed.

Very friendly restaurant! The Mac and cheese and fried okra are maybe best you ever had. Wish they were open later in the day. Convenient, just right on Clemson Blvd. near the mall.

Thanks, Reba. My wife worked on the mac recipe for 12 years -- trying to get it as close as she could to her grandmother's! More

This restaurant is a few miles off interstate 85, but absolutely worth the time to get there. I had a pulled pork sandwich that was out of this world. Great quality and fair price.

My wife and I tried Pompous Pig for the first time. While the food was good, I have had better BBQ and fixin's. The portions were small proportionate to the prices charged. Our bill was right at $27.00 for two plates and drinks. Will not rule out a return trio, however.

Went for dinner. Food was good. Portions for the sides were kinda small, served in a small styrofoam container. Everything was hot. Servers were very friendly. We thought the prices were high. You pay separately for each side - $2 - $3 each. Add that to a $6 or $7 entree and it adds up quick. Not sure we would... More

Stopped here for lunch on a trip thru S.C. Just off I-85 downtown Anderson. Worth the time it took to stop and eat. We had ribs, baked beans, Cole slaw, Texas toast and cornbread. Had samples of brisket, chicken, and pulled pork. Really good smoky flavor from all. They have really good sauces for a variety of taste. The Alabama... More

Description
THE BEST BBQ! Smoked Pork, Ribs, Chicken, Beef Brisket and Sausages. The meats are smoked daily for 8 to 14 hours in our on-site BBQ Pit using a mixture of woods (Hickory, Pecan, White Oak) combined with unique blends of spices and rubs. Our traditional southern side dishes are cooked from scratch in-house each day. Come on by and visit us early 'cause when it's gone, IT'S GONE!
