Didn't know what to expect from a bbq place at CA, I was surprised on the good execution. I mean, coming from TX I've had much better bbq in the past, but this one was flavorful and tasty.

Smoking Pig is a must visit every time we're in San Jose! From the Chicken Lollipop apps, to the Brisket, ribs, pulled pork & chicken, to the peanut butter pie for desert, the food is great! The mac & cheese is also wonderful! The only...More

Found this place recently and was delighted by the food and service. Got a quarter rack of ribs and wished I had room for more, they were so good.

Great food! The BBQ ribs and BBQ chicken are juicy, tender, and mouth watering; and the Burnt Ends are amazing! The service could be better but the food keeps us coming back!

Food and service were good. Sandwich was very tasty, but not very big for the price of the meal. I got the brisket sandwich - which left me still wanting more. Very generous with the fries.

Absolutely the best brisket I have ever had!!! The honey BBQ. Sauce was excellent. Really compliments the brisket. Great service too! I went to the original so can’t speak for the other one that popped up.

I always order the burned end, cornbread and beans are surprisingly good, good BBQ joint in the neighborhood, everyone's friend and try hard to accommodate their customers

We are a very casual BBQ "joint" in the traditional sense. The focus is on the food. Slow smoked meats, homemade sides, rubs, sauces and desserts. Friendly service, at home feel. Excellent beer and wine lists (no kidding). Genuine Southern BBQ. Everything made in-house. Our mission is your delight. We Cater too! 25 to 5000 people.
