We wanted some authentic BBQ and Smokey Pig definitely impressed us. Ribs, mac n cheese, and slaw were all awesome! Very laid back little place with quick and friendly service. We were very happy to have crossed paths with this place!

Truly a must try if you are a BBQ lover. They have plenty of choices both meats and sides. I had the pulled pork, beans and vinegar cole slaw. Reasonable prices and ample portions. Staff was friendly and attentive

This place sits right on top of the Barren River and has a cool view if you sit in the open room or outside on the picnic tables. If you stop by here, get the pork shoulder. They give you three thin slices of meat...More
