Review of Porky's Pit

Porky's Pit
Ranked #17 of 51 Restaurants in Port Isabel
Restaurant details
Reviewed 20 February 2018 via mobile

We tried Porky’s this year for the first time. It is on our list of favorite restaurants in Port Isabel.
We’ve been coming to SPI for 12 years now and was bored with the same old restaurants.
We love the pulled pork sandwich and the baked beans. The sauce is the best, not too spicy or sweet.
Not a fan of the ribs or the brisket.
They usually only have one waitress, so if they are very busy the service might not be up to par.

We stopped by for a quick bite & we got it. The service was friendly as is everyone on the island. Food was good--of course bar-b-q is always good.

We had ribs and brisket. Both were tender, moist and simply delicious. Baked beans and cole slaw very good. French fries were to die for.

If you are a barbecue fan, you have to visit Porky's pit. We are so happy that there's a good BBQ place near South Padre. When you walk in, the smell is heavenly. The meat is so tender, it falls off of the bone on the ribs. The brisket and pulled pork are also excellent. It's one of our favorite take-out places.
