Pretty good food
Time and time again this place nails it. Groupon voucher is just an added bonus although would still frequent without especially on hot summer days. Everything is our favorite and have a hard time deciding what to order. Also very friendly staff and customers. A must try for everyone.
Great BBQ! The food is always on point. The staff is very friendly and the prices are very fair!
Excellent little spot with delicious food. The chili Mac and cheese is out of this world!
Great food at a great price wont be disappointed
Great food, awesome people very nice place to eat in or take out will recommend highly
Good local BBQ. Large portions, good prices, and above average flavor. Veteran owned, if that's important to you
Who are these people who rate this place below a 5 star????? Words can't describe the food here its beyond amazing! Owner is friendly and so is his wife! My wife and I stopped In from New Jersey on our way up to Maine couple weeks ago to grab a bite to eat and decided here i walked in and you start floating towards the amazing bbq smell. And owner asked us next time to bring in pork roll from nj since we are famous for it lmao! I will be stopping here everytime I'm up in that area!!!
Amazing food the smell grabs you as soon as you walk in best barbecue I've ever had whole place was so clean you could eat off the floor had an amazing experience would go again and again
Truly a standout in the CT barbeque scene. Food was absolutely fantastic, the staff was extremely friendly and the service prompt. Owner was present, pleasant and engaged with the customers. I will definitely be back soon.
Good food !
Love all the food . yummy. Go there at least once a month. Would recommend to anyone.
Great BBQ. Has a great variety of food.
Amazing BBQ, pulled pork and Mac and cheese are really great. Fast service, good prices. You will leave full
Great customer service. SUPER FAST. Good tasting food
Not a fan. Prefer my brisket sliced instead of chopped. I didn't care for the smoked mac and cheese but the sweet potato bread was good. Will go back to try their ribs and other sides.
This is by far one of the best BBQ locations I have been to. Also has reasonable pricing.
In the area visiting and was searched out the Rig Rig on the Internet. Ordered pulled pork, jerk pork, beef brisket sandwiches. All the sandwiches were tasty, but the brisket was maybe a bit dry. We had an order of mac and cheese, which was really nice side. The baked beans were a real treat, next time I'll get enough to have leftovers.
Pig Rig was recommended by a guy (maybe the owner) at 2 Guys 1 Grill (Wallingford). Thanks 2G1G...very good recommendation. The lady who took the order & 2 other guys (1 may have been the owner) were very friendly. I ordered the 1/2 rack of baby back ribs, Cowboy beans, smoked cornbread, & 6 oz brisket w/side of BBQ sauce. The ribs were tender but a lil fatty on the back side. The brisket was really good and the sauce had a slight kick to it. When, not if, but when I return, I would probably forgo the ribs as the main meat and order brisket. The Cowboy beans & cornbread were both good and I would buy both again. I would recommend giving Pig Rig BBQ a try. I believe you will be pleased.
Brisket and mac and cheese were delicious. Ribs were good, but not falling off the bone. Pulled pork tasted like fish (weird). Beans were good, but a little too spicy for me. Cornbread was overly sweet - more like birthday cake. Service was friendly and fast.
Was one of out favorite spots but the girl at the register failed miserably today .
BEST BBQ OUTSIDE OF TEXAS IN THE STATE, FRIENDLY STAFF, REASONABLY PRICED, GREAT LOCATION, PLENTY OF PARKING, CATERING DONE, FOOD TRUCK AVAILABLE. OWNER IS A VETERAN.
Excellent food and service.
I made a large catering order from here, and they were lovely. Very nice people, everything was delicious! I got so many compliments from the food, I even had the urge to say I made it all myself LOL. The chicken wings were delicious and flavorful, good. The bbq ribs were fall off the bone delicious. I still think about those ribs quite often. Well, we ordered a smoked Turkey for thanksgiving (we never do turkey on thanksgiving because its never eaten) but from them it was also very delicious! Juicy, succulent, aromatic, smoky. Easy to heat up. A little pricey but its worth it. The turkey was gone by the end of the day!!! A first for us. I love this place.
The best BBQ around. Always worth the drive. Owned and operated by an American military hero!
Best BBQ in CT! Food is awesome, Staff s friendly and fast. I have known these guys since they were serving out of the trailer. You won't find friendlier faces, faster service or better food served anywhere else in New Haven County. Conveniently located just off the Parkways exit 66 and only a couple of minutes from I91 exit 68. Worth the trip from anywhere in CT.
I ordered food for my family over the weekend. I called in the order and the man who took the order was very pleasant. He had great costumer service. When I went to pick up my order I was surprised by the very cute dining area which I didn't know they had. I had to double check my take out bag and there were a couple sides missing but they got them for me right away. We went home and ate and everything was hot and delicious! Even my picky kids enjoyed it. I think next time we will eat there to enjoy the atmosphere!
I have been meaning to go there for quite some time and I have to say that it definitely didn't disappoint me. Ample servings, quick and polite service and awesome food...whats not to like?! I definitely will be back. :-)
Great food and prices
Like their style of BBQ and fixins'
I have eaten at the restaurant several times and had their catering several times and this is by far the best barbecue in the entire state of Connecticut.
This is a great BBQ place right in Wallingford. The staff are always nice and friendly here. And since our last visit, they have expanded and now have a large dining area. This gives this place that extra touch that it needed. Now onto the food! What can I say - the make great BBQ. I've tried a variety of their meats before and they are all good. They have a nice selection of BBQ sauces that you can add to your meal, with options ranging from spicy to sweet and tangy. Their collards, Mac and cheese, and cowboy beans are excellent and never fail to please when you take them to a gathering. Yes, they cater and they are reasonably priced. On this particular chilly, Fall day I opted for their chilli and a side of corn bread. The chilli was piping hot and tasted great. I added in some spicy BBQ sauce to kick up the heat and that made it perfect. The corn bread was a tad dry (but I'm yet to have excellent corn bread anywhere). My husband got the brisket sandwich with collards and it was big! Didn't stop him from wolfing it down, so needless to say, he loved every bite. We'll definitely keep coming back here.
We went for a birthday gathering, first time to this BBQ restaurant. Out of the hundreds of other BBQ restaurants ive been too this place ranks in my top 5. Amazing meat and sides. Burnt ends and chilli mac is amazing. The owner stopped us on our way out and had a nice conversation with us about his business and was really friendly. Definitely recommend this place. Only negative is it was a bit chilli ( no pun intended) during the winter months so brimg a sweatshirt or coat with you. By no means let this defer you from the amazing food
I was not really impressed with the food here. I ordered the Carolina pulled pork sandwich... the coleslaw had no flavor and the Carolina sauce was not right. The pork however was tender. The chilimac and cheese was so spicy I couldn't even eat it.
Great food and service
I'm from Texas and this is the only place that has managed to meet my expectations of BBQ. Easily 5/5! Friendly staff, owner and AMAZING food with lots of variety! I was the kid asking about cornbread... btw, AMAZING CORNBREAD!
I've never had a bad meal here, everything's awsome if you liked bbq. Burnt ends are perfect and the smoked mac and cheese is incredible
Food is great, service friendly. Portions are in line with prices.
Delicious BBQ! The brisket and mac n cheese were our favorite, but the pulled pork and BBQ smoked chicken legs were really great too! Also, the cashier was friendly and helpful. We'll definitely be back!
Fast service and excellent food.
This place is tucked away in the right, very back corner of the strip mall but you could smell the yummy Bar-b-q smoke in the air while driving down Yale Ave. We ordered 2 of the 2 meat combo with pulled pork and oh so tender brisket. The actual chef brought our meals and 2 sides: Potatoes salad and greens + mac n cheese and cowboy bakes beans. You also have a choice of cornbread or sweet potato bread that comes with each meal. The food did not disappoint and the service was prompt as well. Also noticed they offer food truck and catering services, to bring their yummy bar-b-q goodness to your party or event.
Delicious, friendly fast
Good BBQ and sides (collards too! I was amazed to find greens on a lily white menu in Connecticut). Dining area was clean and pleasant enough. Located in a strip mall.
Amazing! All meats were seasoned well, sides were on point and a great selection of sauces. BYOB next time.
Great food could have been hotter
Excellent BBQ very fast service. Great value.
Very friendly staff with fantastic food! Truly enjoy walking into this place! The smells and atmosphere is so very inviting!
Really great BBQ. Meaty fall off the bone ribs. Had the Crackin Hotdog. The chilli is awesome! Should be offered as a side item! Will go back and recommend!
amazing food and great service ,
Amazing food, abit pricey but worth every penny
Enjoyed our visit. Signs, signs everywhere were signs. Menu seems more appropriate for regular customers. Had beef, pork, and chicken. Chicken was a small thigh and dry.
I havent tried much of the menu myself but the pulled pork sandwich is outstanding and I've gotten glowing reviews about the jamaican sandwich and the ribs. They've added more seating since I was here last, which was really my only complaint before.
The food is very good. Pulled pork sandwich with mac and cheese is my favorite. The mac and cheese has a real smokey flavor to it with bits of bacon and pulled pork. The staff is always friendly. The chili is spicy and delicious, although it's a little on the small size because it comes served on top of mac and cheese. The pulled pork has a lot of flavor; don't really need the delicious barbecue sauce.
Good taste, reasonable price.
This restaurant is incredibly amazing and their food is just absolutely delicious. Their prices are actually really good for the food that you get and it is extremely filling too. The staff are extremely friendly. Also it is a veteran owned and operated business.
SO GOOD. The food is amazingly flavorful and the service was the best. Daniel was so kind and welcoming. It's not close to where we live but we wouldn't hesitate to come back and eat here again!
Amazing BBQ. My go to spot! Come all the way from Branford to get their food. Pulled Brisket and ChiliMac are out of this world.
Stopped by on a Sunday afternoon after remembering someone telling me to try this place out. The food was delicious! The portions are generous and the prices more than fair (especially considering how pricey BBQ can be) My pulled pork sandwich was so yummy and the Mac and Cheese is awesome. The corn bread was really good as well, but a little too sweet for me. We sat outside with our dog and they were super accommodating and even offered water for her. The food was so filling I had to take some of it home for a "snack" for later that day. We will absolutely be back!
Food is amazing and so is the smoked Mac and cheese
I went here to check out a regular dinner after my friends wedding was catered from here. This is the only real place to get bbq. I’m southern and when we moved up here, I was seriously disappointed in every bbq joint we went to. This place does it right!! It’s smoky, tender and the sauces are perfect. The owner was really cool too. Good job!
Food was amazing. They had just expanded into the adjacent space so the seating was basic. Nice layout, food served in takeout fashion, styrofoam containers. Would be nice to see it on plates with maybe some real silverware. Again, FOOD WAS AMAZING. I'll for sure be going back.
Just amazing! I had the 3 rib special and a baby back rib. Side of cowboy beans. Deeelicious!! Beans tie for my all time favorite. Corn bread was warm and perfect. Buddy had pulled pork sandwich
Awesome food and fast friendly service!! Highly recommended!
Food is hit or miss. I stopped going there since the last time the chicken tasted like it was not cooked all the way.
Stopped by today for the first time with the family. Great, friendly staff. The owner was awesome! Gave us kick ass beans to try. We loved it. The family was happy with the meal and service. Ribs were great, Mac and cheese amaze and pulled pork also very good.
great bbq and sides
Amazing food, people there are wonderful. We will be back
The pulled pork sandwich was a little dry and could use more sauce. The mac and cheese was awesome! The portions could be more for the money. The staff is friendly. I will be returning
Very good ribs
The food was delicious, the price was good, and the portions were filling. I only wish my stomach had more room!
Amazing food. Owner is very welcoming. They offer catering and have special holiday dishes. You must try everything!
This is some serious BBQ. If you didnt tell me where I was I could believe I was in the heart of Kansas City.
Great food!.. a bit pricey $$$ but worth it if you love BBQ
OMG! Finally really Good barbecue!!! Don't forget the sides!! They rock!
Pig rig has always impressed me. I've tried almost everything on the menu and have never been disappointed. My go to is the brisket sandwich with collard greens which have BACON in them. The side of beans has pork and brisket in it. The hot dogs can get covered in pork. Everything is delicious! We recently had them cater our company picnic and they even made a pretty good looking salad along all their delicious beef, pork, chicken, ribs, etc. If you're looking for local BBQ, pig rig is the place to go.
Great bbq pulled pork at a reasonable price.
Awesome barbecue! BEST RIBS EVER!!!
I got the ribs and corn bread. Very nice. Glad I made the trip.
Went last night for dinner with the family. Excellent food and service! Ribs were great and burnt ends were fabulous!!! Met the owner and his son who are personable and friendly. Bring your own bottle too! Great place to go. We will definately be back for more!
Tired of pizza..fast food..Mexican...then do yourself a favor and visit this place. Good portion size, fantastic food, fast friendly service. Does not disappoint. Take out or dine in
Decent BBQ, but hard to get anything better in CT.
Portions could be bigger for my money. The food is good. The smoked mac is great.
Haven't been able to find another bbq spot that even comes close to the pig rig
We have BBQ in CT. It's no secret to locals that this is the place to go for legitimate outstanding BBQ. Smoked mac and cheese? Brisket? Yes please! They started as a food truck and segued into a brick and mortar. They made a good decision. Their menu is amazing and also witty. The owner is a proud US Army vet, and they have daily trivia questions that can earn you a free (scrumptious) rib. Just do yourself a favor and hit this place up right now.
Delicious food! Large portions! Friendly wait staff! Clean restaurant! Will definitely be back for more!
Good bbq, heavy on the salt for all the food.but especially in the greens, really grit-your-teeth-salty. Inedible.
Very good barbecue very reasonable prices huge portions great service. A must go to if you enjoy excellent food and great friendly service
Was in the area and a co-worker suggested we try it out. The food was delicious.
I brought my family here for the first time. We were a large party and the owner and his staff took amazing care of us! The food was outstanding. The energy in there was uplifting. We left feeling like family! I had previously gone for take out and the food was outstanding but tonight's experience in full was wonderful! Their burnt ends, mac and cheese, cheese grits (a special for tonight) were delectable. Every single thing we got was better than the next! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PLACE! Thank you Dan for your hospitality.
So good! Great BBQ
Great bbq place
Great barbeque. Try the cowboy beans. The best baked beans ever. Yum! Brisket is tender and flavorful.
Awesome pulled pork sand
Excellent bbq and service
Service was great and food was awesome!
WOW....great taste very filling
WOW! What a huge change in quality from my two previous visits! I had given up on Pig Rig, but was in the vicinity and decided to give them one more chance. I'm certainly glad I did! The ribs I had today had a nice smoke ring, were falling off the bone tender, had the same perfect dry rub, and just the right amount of sauce to give them flavor without overwhelming the taste of the meat, just as they had when I first ate here, two years ago. The mac and cheese was as good as always, with a nice, smokey, cheesy flavor, but wasn't soggy and overcooked as before. When I mentioned that it wasn't soggy this time, the friendly lady that took my order said they'd changed the way they make it. Perhaps they were paying attention to the critical reviews. The cornbread was as moist and full of corn flavor as always. Thanks, Pig Rig. You've regained my patronage.
Pretty good stuff, saw them at the 4H fair in Durham and thought we'd give it a try.
The food quality is excellent the people that work there very nice but it is a bit pricey . Unfortunately after reviewing my post I realized I forgot to comment about the amount of fat in the food now I've done hundreds of pig roast and cook pork BBQ the last 35 years as a retired chef and I've always skimmed off the fat you know after it's cooked skimming off the top but they don't seam to this easy fat removal, at least in my opinion , and it's very fatty but good
Brisket was ok, pulled pork was not.
Excellent BBQ. Good portions. Reasonable prices.
Fantasic place, went here on the way to philly and it was both cheaper and better than expected.
The Mac and cheese is the bomb!!!! All the food is amazing and I can feed 3+ of us for $20
Amazing BBQ, probably the best I've had up here in Connecticut. I have to say that my favourite dish is the smoked Mac and cheese with smoked meat. Great staff and efficient service. I've been here for a couple lunches, got dinner to go. Definitely catering my next event!
Great food, fast service, super friendly staff. The pulled pork is amazing. The dining room recently got expanded and looks great.
Still hands-down the best place to get barbecue in Wallingford a new place just open up they'll be closed shortly they don't even compare
BBQ so good you don't need sauce and answer the rock&roll question and get a free rib
Amazing BBQ!!! My favorite Moomac sandwich and cowboy beans!!! Highly recommend!
Amazing food. Great service. Super laid back (what else would you expect with bbq). Ordered the ribs and the burnt ends. The flavor was awesome. The sides were equally delicious. We were there for father's day and even though they were super busy, the quality, quantity, and service was great.
Extremely fast service. Food was delicious. Had the brisket sandwich with cornbread. I like that they have several sauce options to pick from.
Our family has ordered from Pig Rig 2x in 7 days! We are hooked! Best BBQ in Wallingford and beyond! Owner Daniel knows how to keep his customers coming back. Great food and customer service. I highly recommend the Kansas City BBQ sauce on anything that comes out of his smoker! And the mac & cheese with pulled pork and bacon is heavenly!!
The employees behind the counter and grill were extremely nice to me and friendly. But the owners of the store were so uptight and rude that it made me never want come again. I was picking up food and was told that I couldn’t even take it becuase I didn’t show up with a bag due to their “policy”! What kind of policy is that!? I’ve never heard of such in my life and am so disgusted by the rude remarks made by the owner and his wife. They even bragged about how delicious the food was supposed to be and asked if I’d been before. I will never come back here due to the owners. The employees were great but owners need to learn how to treat their customers. I’m sure most haven’t met them while dining in, but I’m truly appalled and disgusted with the treatment.
Quick and friendly. good food.
Definitely a good attempt at authentic BBQ. Food was decent and came out fairly quickly.
Small BBQ joint with really good food. I was lucky enough to get the burnt ends, they tend to sell out, and I thought they were great. I also really liked the Cole slaw and the corn bread. They have a number of sauces to try, like original, spicy, Carolina, etc. Not bad prices either.
Not my favorite but it was ok
This is the Midway point to hockey tournaments in Boston from New Jersey. Great place to fuel up on some great smoked protein for the players! This is our second time here. The pulled pork it's just amazing! Can't go wrong. I was equally amazed by the smoked chicken. "Off the charts juicy..." The Mac and cheese is just sinful. Well worth it! The only thing needed to make me feel down south is fresh brewed ice tea (sweet tea for those who can handle it). The place is in a strip mall but don't let that slow you down. If they were closer to our house I'd cater family events from the Pig Rig!
High quality tasty barbecue that’s done right!
Awesome place! One of the best places I've eaten at in a long time. A good amount of food, plenty of choices, with reasonable prices.
The food and employees were absolutely amazing here. The pulled pork was delicious and the mac and cheese was slightly overcooked but that's understandable because I went at a strange time and it was probably sitting for a while. I'll definitely be back for more.
Excellent. Not dry meat like some. The ribs are delicious. Beans and corn bread great. The owners are very nice! I'll go again!!
Best smoked meals in area
Excellent lean tasting cuts of quality bbq with generous portions. Definitely will return!
I'll probably have to come back tomorrow to try the ribs,
Large portions of great food. Nice people who care.
Always a great experience. The staff & owner are always pleasant. Highly recommend.
Wanted to continue my shortened review, so my buddy had the pulled pork sandwich, it looked perfect and he said it tasted great. Nice roll too. He also had the cowboy beans and like them as much as I. IF this place was less than 2 hours away, I would be there every week! Certainly would stop by again if I was ANYWHERE close. Don't know about the complaints here about shop employees, they were all very nice to us on our visit. Shop is very nice and apparently the dining room is new. If you live in the area and have not been here, you are missing a real treat!
I didnt like the food at all it was very distasteful everything needed more seasoning and they need more and better sides. I will not recommend this place.
Great food, awesome staff
BBQ! Excellent food, oh and the mac&cheese is so awesome!
It was all around pretty good. Portion was a little light got the price but that's North prices compared to South prices. Corn bread was too sweet. Sauces were all right.
Why would anyone go to MacD or BK when you can get awesomeness between two buns, a homemade side, a drink for the same price. Man you are just cheating yourself.
Probably the best BBQ in the state. And a super friendly staff!
Food came out faster than McDonald's and was some of the best BBQ I've ever had.
BBQ is good but,was much better when they were cooking out of the trailer.
Good BBQ. My second time there. Great service but the meats could use more smoke flavor. The cowboy beans are excellent. On my first visit I tried the ribs which were cooked perfectly, and today I tried the pulled pork sandwich which was very good. If it had more smoke flavor i would have rated it 5 stars. Excellent food regardless and fast friendly service too!
For a peron who smokes his on Barbecue I will go to Pig Rig on days I'm not cooking. I wish they would do spares over baby backs but never the less in really enjoy the brisket burnt ends. Staff and ownership is ever helpful. We often buy when going to a show down the way at Square Foot Theater.
Fabulous food, great portions, the sweet potato bread is to die for. Dilki took care of our party of four after hours, saving the day!
Great BBQ spot owned by a veteran. He is super friendly and his food is solid. Worth a visit for sure!
The Grandsons first discovered The Pig Rig and suggested we all return. They hadn't been back since the addition of the ample, bright dining room. We each ordered a different menu item. Tasty and huge portions. Nice people are there to assist with ordering questions you may have. Definitely the place to go when you crave Barbecue. The Mac & cheese is divine!
Great place I've eaten there once and plan on going back
Walmart academy associates favorite place to eat. Good quality food and great customer service.
I came here with some friends for dinner on a Saturday evening. The location is within a shopping center with a large parking lot and pretty easy to see. You order at the counter and then sit at the table where they bring the food to you, and you can even bring your own booze! The food was delicious and very well priced for the sizes that you get. I'd highly recommend the brisket on the menu along with the baked beans.
Obviously not a place for black people. Very BLATANTLY rude! Spoke to and helped every white person...even those who came in after I did. Would NEVER purchase from them. The WORST service
Amazing food.... tried it for the first time tonight. I will be back for sure. Pigmac!
This place is great ! I will be back!
Absolutely amazing BBQ. My only wish is that they had cheese to put on the sandwich. A slice of cheddar on pulled pork would be great. The food is amazing though. Check them out if you want that southern BBQ taste. Also have catering which is amazing.
If you enjoy BBQ then I can tell you that I love just about everything on the expansive menu. Pulled Pork, Brisket and Burnt Ends! Platters and sandwiches and sides such as Smoked Mac-n-Cheese, Cowboy Beans, Chilli Mac, and occasionally specials like Cheese Grits (with or without bacon). Friendly service willing to answer questions. Take out or eat in (expanded dining room).
Discussing. Poor flavor and too much fat. I went a year ago. I would never recommend this place to anyone. The service was poor and the food disgusting
Awesome find right off of the highway during a road trip a few years back. I always make sure to stop in whenever I'm passing through CT. I love the pulled pork and their bbq sauce is awesome. Make sure you try their Mac and cheese and cowboy baked beans as sides.
Found this place through a friend who sent me their groupon deal. Everything I've had there has been excellent, clean environment, and friendly staff. Best bbq in the wallingford area in my opinion. Also great to support a veteran owned business
A hidden amazing BBQ gem! Excellent food and nice customer friendly service! Will try to visit again
Just live how friendly they are and how good the food tastes!
My first visit, I was very pleased, considering that I'm from Texas where BBQ is the bomb.
The corn bread was ok. I guess my taste buds didn't care much for the meat was a bit dry, but that could of just been me.
Excellent food and wonderful staff! Veteran owned and operated with authentic BBQ dishes. The brisket is to die for, and they offer a variety of homemade sauces to add if desired. The smell alone will have your mouth watering!
Owner is extremely friendly, food was prepared in a timely manner, and it tasted great too! Fun environment. Some of the best burnt ends we’ve ever had, we loved the smokey mac ‘n cheese, baked beans & cornbread tasted great too. Just a little tricky to find because the sign wasn’t hung and we had never been. Highly recommend!
