We cannot go to the NC mountains without stopping at Pedalin’ Pig at LEAST 2-3 times. It’s literally all we eat before snowboarding, after snowboarding and midnight snacking after that. BEST BBQ OUT THERE. What I should say is no one should go there so...More

The service was friendly, and the food was fine. Pulled pork was a little dry but could be saved with the sauce. Onion petals were pretty greasy, mostly breading and not much onion inside.

Be prepared... the portions are enormous. Everything we've had is tasty except the cornbread salad. Sometimes there's music, too.

Always tons of cars in the parking lot, so eat at a non-traditional time. Lunch at 2:30 during the week it was uncrowded inside. Good service. Very good chicarrones, pork belly tacos, ribs. Lots on the menu to try
