Great food, if you can catch them when they are open!!.
I swear the last ten times my husband and I have wanted to eat here, it's been closed. Even on days and times when they are supposed to be open. The food is good, and maybe one of these days I'll actually get to eat it again.
I have never really liked ribs until I tried the Mean Pig BBQ Ribs, that is all I ever eat there unless we happen to get there later than usual and they run out. I tried some ribs in San Antonio last summer just to see how they compared. No comparison, Mean Pig Ribs are the best I've ever had. We consider the owners to be our friends, wonderful family atmosphere. Mr. Merritt, if you read this, I'm posting my initials, you will figure it out. Get the Ribs........ jmh
Best B-bque I've ever had!!.
I live in florida and my parents live in arkansas... Everytime I go visit them, I make 2 or 3 stops at the Mean Pig!! They always remember me, it makes me feel great. Last time I was there was right before thanksgiving. I was going home the next day. The owner knows how much I love there sauce so he gave me some for home. That meant so much to me!! You don't find people like that very often! Not only are they kind, considerate with GREAT customer service, but they have AWESOME food as well!! Cabot consider yourself lucky for having such an awesome restaraunt around.
Best BBQ in caounty for 10 years in a row.
The Food is great, the service is the same. The Military customers are a welcome site. The " Air Dinks" as they were refered to in a prior review. are the back bone of our country. Everyone has a bad day, so if you thought there were rude, maybe, you were rude to start off with. I enjoy the food and the people. The Food is all FRESH cooked every day, the BEANS are AWSOME... The are so good they have a patient on them... So If you want to go somewhere else go ahead, the " air dinks" give you the right to say what you may say, God Bless the USA and the U. S. Air Force....
The most rude owners and help you will find anywhere.
Remember the Seinfield episode called the 'soup nazzi'??? Well, I call these guys the BBQ nazzi's. They are mean, short and rude. They act as if they are doing you a favor by being open. There was a time when they were the only BBQ joint in town. That's all changed now and thankfully for the better. Every air-dink in the tri-city area is in the restaurant from noon to 1pm. As far as tast goes it is very, very average. I mean it is just nothing to write home about but, it's not terrible at all.
What is dj 51 TALKING about, It' GREAT Q.
dj51 must be high as a KITE, The ONLY slaw offered for the sandwich's is "WET" slaw, and as far as being a grease soaked bun if you don't eat fast. I have ate there for the past 8 years and NEVER have a had a GREASE SOAKED bun. The food is great and the service is the same.
Not so Good....
I don't like the meat chopped and that is the only option. The sauce is average and they don't have "wet" slaw to put on the sandwich. Greasy - if you don't eat it fast, the bun becomes grease soaked.
