Porky's BBQ is wonderful and real hickory smoked BBQ, not city stuff! Staff are excellent and food is always hot and delicious. They offer a wide range of food choices, fish, steak, chicken, burgers, hotdogs, fries, etc. Always pleased and enjoyed meals.

I stopped here for an early dinner because traffic has been very slow and I still have an hour or more to drive home. I had been here before and always enjoyed the food. I will return here next time I'm in the area.
