Our authentic BBQ starts in a live-wood smoker stoked with genuine hickory logs. Our pitmasters hand-rub the meats with a custom blend of spices and cook for hours to extract the natural flavors. We source the highest quality meats and trim them up like we’re in a competition and hand-rub them with the freshest seasonings available to create mouthwatering experiences! In addition to our BBQ and grilled meats, our menu features a selection of salads, sandwiches, side items, and made-from-scratch desserts.

Remodel leaves Dave's flat. "PIG" coupons are no longer accepted. Won't be back after 10+ years of dining there.

This is a great family restaurant to get good quality BBQ, the ribs are outstanding, the chicken is perfect, the muffins are outstanding. Service is five star, the staff puts the customer first and provides service in silence, not too many questions, but always shows up right when you need them, more napkins, water, to go container. Highly recommend ordering the feast!

I had issues with the open table reservation. It wouldn't modify the amount of people without changing the time, irritating.

They were busy with to go orders and or appetizer took over 20 mins.

Our server gave us the wrong food order, but I didn't notice till we had already begun to eat. I asked her if this was it and she ran away. Manager came over and offered to remove the food. That was a dumb idea because we were already eating. We ended up paying full price and talking the food home.

This location does that a lot but they closed the one near my home in Puyallup.

Travis, our server was awesome. He was very kind to our rowdy kids and very polite to our elderly mom.
