The food was excellent. The ambiance and sound level were conducive to lively conversation at our table of 8. The whiskey selection was top notch. We ordered a Napa Cabernet that opened quite nicely for a good price. The chocolate dessert was a good way to end the evening.

The meat needed more flavor and to be cooked a little longer.. Not the best bbq, I've had better.

Delicious ribs! We loved the mac & cheese and the cornbread. Relaxing decor not too loud. Great place to tuck in and enjoy some comfort food. Service was excellent.

Ordered the platter, got a good chance to try a variety of things. Dessert was delicious, fried apple pie. Going for the peach cobbler next time. Server was a delight, so nice & relatable. 10/10

Well, I’m from Kansas City so this is just a basic review. The cornbread was great. The ribs weren’t cut right and not able to be properly eaten. The brisket was half marbleized and half dry… both sides were over cooked. We would recommend for a fun atmosphere with friends.

Solid rib and BBQ joint! We all had the BBQ platter with various meats and a side a mac n cheese. The mac n cheese wasn’t that good but everything else was very tasty. We all agreed we will come back.

The pork buns were excellent. The pork chop was a little salty and the heirloom carrots were too under cooked for me. Overall, it was good. I tired my husbands pork shank and it was fine too.

Spent a few days in DC, discovered this hidden gem on my last night. Best BBQ ever coming from a Caribbean girl! Wish I had found it sooner. Smoked chicken was fall off the bone tender. My kids loved the ribs. Cornbread and Mac and cheese also quite delicious.

Excellent customer service. Our service was pleasant, kind, and attentive. I wanted a drink from the happy hour menu but was denied the happy hour price because we had to move inside due to the storm. I wish the bartender was a bit more accommodating, but our service was amazing.

Just wonderfully delicious, from our cocktails to the starter to the entree, all are a celebration of everything that is delectable about porky goodness! The roasted Pork Belly Bun starter held crispy pork belly with a tangy sauce that hit the perfect note to begin our journey, the signature cocktails were smooth and a perfect compliment. Our entrees of the BBQ platter (ribs, brisket and pulled pork) and Pernil Pork were just delicious, perfectly cooks that it all melted in your mouth. The Peach Cobbler dessert with peach gelato was about as perfect as a dessert could be. The Pig is a restaurant that will make any foodie incredibly happy!

My wife and I came here for dinner. I am a huge carnivore and all about the pig. The pork belly app was delicious. Everything came out in great time. The portions were ample! Corn bread was a bit dry. But overall food was worth it! We had Fausto as our server and he was training. They were FABULOUS. Loved them and were very attentive.
