Traveling through Tupelo on our way to our vacation destination, and we wanted to try something local. Found good reviews for the Neon Pig, so we decided to give it a try. Very small location, not a lot of seating, but we were there before peak lunch time, so we found a table. Very interesting place, kind of a specialty... More

The food was great, the smash burger was very good and tasty... my wife had the chicken lettuce wraps and they were delicious as well... the boys choked down a burger each with no complaints. The staff was a little confused at check out, but we managed to get the bill paid. Definitely worth a try...

I like the review that said this was a BBQ restaurant, a grocery store etc in. cool kinda way. Exactly! Everything in the restaurant is locally grown from the beef to the veggies. In the process of reading A Barbara Kingsolver book so was very happy to eat how she recommends! Hubby had the Smash which was the best burger... More

This place is a butcher shop/ local grocery/ restaurant... But in a young cool kids kinda way. They seem to really know what they are doing. Here's the thing... I'm a vegetarian... But all my meat eating friends are obsessed with this place. My poor boyfriend never gets to go though. They have nothing for me so we never eat... More

Entirely sufficient, I had the signature burger and salad. The food was good but it fell short of the "cool vibe" the atmosphere strives to impart. Service was ok while pricing reflected the trendy aura that was promoted. Ultimately, if looking cool is your goal, this may be your place.

We saw good and bad reviews. So glad we came. Had the smash burger and it was delicious and so unique. Best burger ever. We plan to come back for dinner where we can pick from their awesome aged selection of meat. Had a great time. Highly recommend.

My family and I stopped here while driving through town. I saw what great reviews it got on trip advisor. My husband and I love a good burger. The sign on the front door said it was voted the best. I would like to know buy whom? It was not a bad but really not close to the best. The... More

Pork belly bun...the meat is crispy on the outside and unctious inside with mild saltiness. Great hoisin sauce and thin sliced cucumber. Best item on the menu. BElvis burger is coarse ground flavorful meat with creamy pimento cheese, pork belly, sweet and savory sauces and soft ciabatta bun. It is a mix of restaurant and store with a service a... More

This was my 5th visit. I've tried to understand why people like this place. The service has ranged from aloof kids to overwhelmed workers. The food? Inconsistent. Smash burger tastes strange at best. Had 3 of them. Is STERNO the magic ingredient? On 2 visits, I was grateful the Zapp's chips were as expected. I took different people to each... More

Have been in many times but never left review. Good as always. Taco special of the day is almost always awesome choice and if it doesnt sound appetizing, the "best burger in America" is quite a backup plan! Casual to say least-you want a drink, just grab one. Service is fast and friendly. A little pricy, but with local sourced... More

I reviewed this restaurant on Yelp and Urban Spoon. I tried to add it to trip advisor the other day, but I didn't hear anything back, and it's not on your site. You can check it out at their Facebook page, Neon Pig Cafe.
