Great food, Great service and even greater location next to the airfield. It was really cool being able to eat outside under the covering seeing the planes take off and seeing the beautiful day

This is a must if you have not visited it....restaurant is on a private air strip so small engine planes come and go while you enjoy the best pulled pork around.

I heard what a great place this was to eat good country cooking, watch the small planes come and go at the airport, etc. First of all, it's overpriced for what you get. Second, they really should make it clear they are a cash only business. I mean, it is not that small. It is big enough to at least... More

We were visiting family in the area and they took us to Pik N Pig. The restaurant is located on a small airport and campground. The food and service was excellent. One of our favorite stops during our stay and we will return on our next trip.

Crowds prove the atttractivenes of this excellent barbecue place. Smoked on site, pulled not minced, with all the fixins. Other menu items for those poor folks who do not know the joy of pulled pork!

Great "pulled" pork, along with effective fixings. Never been let down, whether for lunch or dinner. If you don;t like pork, the chicken or brisket is just as good if not better. Fun place if you visit when planes are flying and customers "drop in" for a bite!

OMG! I ate the barbeque naked (without sauce, not without clothes) and it was so tender! They also have jalapeno butter to go with the hushpuppies. I will definitely eat here again. I wasn't as impressed with the Brunswick stew. Our waitress was very nice and helpful with ordering. Prices are reasonable, and this is a down home place, so... More

Pik N Pig is a great place to grab some delicious Eastern NC BBQ and is just a short drive out of Carthage, NC. My wife and I stop by whenever we are on a day trip that takes us in that direction. The 'Q is always good, smoked on site over a wood fire. The sides are typical Southern... More

Good brisket, pulled pork and chicken. My wife loves the salads. The smoked pork chop has great flavor, but is overcooked. It is very lean and probably needs less time in the smoker. The cornbread muffins, beans and coleslaw are very good. Atmosphere is pretty funky, but fun!

Thank Cal C
