The Pig

I wonder if they’re under new ownership. Instead of ordering at the counter and then they bring it to you, they actually have menus and regular table service. I also noticed they no longer use the soda fountain, but rather have canned drinks (the lemonade is still fresh squeezed, though). And there’s an alcohol permit notice in the window. I seem to remember they had beer there before. Maybe I’m wrong.

The pulled pork plate was outstanding. The meat was a little crispy around the edges as I like it, and tender and stringy on the inside. The sauce was also very good. It had a vinegary flavor that added tang to the meat. There are also 4 different sauces on the table.

The fried potatoes were so-so…really nothing special. And the cole slaw was equally impressive. The fried jalapeno corn bread was pretty good, but dry.

I’d go back for sure, and order the pulled pork again. I’ll have to try my luck with some of the other side dishes.
