All of the food here is really good. It is not fancy, but that's part of the charm. If you can't to Tompkinsville for Monroe Co. BBQ, then this is your place. Vinegar and black pepper-based sauce. Pork Shoulder is most often excellent, though sometimes...More

If you love smoke then you have hit the mother load here! Pork, brisket, sausage chicken oh my it's heaven! From the smell to the taste to the place. Not fancy just clean and full of good eats. Don't expect a lot of creature comforts...More

Always busy with locals-- some people come in for take-out, others sit down and eat there. Nothing is fancy, but the food is pretty good :) The back room overlooks the river.

Super good pulled pork sandwich. Huge. Really liked the BBQ beans. Didn’t care for the potato salad.

We live in Bowling Green, KY but live about 20 miles from Smokey Pig. Anytime we are craving BBQ, we make the drive. We order this for family events too because it's the best around. The pulled pork is always moist. Mac N' Cheese and...More

I like most of the places I try, in fact probably 95%, but maybe they were having an off day today. None of our group liked it, at all. Ribs, or pulled pork, or the sample of shoulder. Potato salad & beans were ok, but...More
