In a word, horrible. I ate at the Pig last night for the first time and I still have a stomach ache this morning. The baby back ribs were tough and slathered with this disgusting sauce. The "homemade" cole slaw was too salty and the baked beans were just okay. The corn bread was unedible. This place made me really appreciate the "real" BBQ places like Bobbique in Patchogue and Smokin Al's.

How can a slippery pig be bad? A slippery pig is beeter than a dry pig.

I wouldn't call this establishment "family-friendly." Obviously the "rowdy nightlife" and "evil bar scene" with its low-class patrons still frequent this place. I would not recommend this hole-in-the-wall to anyone, especially a family.

Just got back from this place. The food served was not hot, not even warm. The cornbread was doughy..not fully baked. BBQ chicken, I can do much better, it seemed grilled plain then they just put the BBQ sauce that is ordinary. Ribs, again not hot, not tender. I rate a place 3 ways: (1)Will definitely go back, (2)Will give it another try (3) No way, will I return again. This place is a 3 No way will I return again. I did not even finish eating and did not take the offd home. It was that bad. Crowd by the bar is too noisy even if there is a separeyt quiet dining room, nothing really separate the noise.

Bad food is not good and I want to add that the owner stiffed the band last night.
That's right, the group of guys moved their gear, played a set and moved out only to not get paid a dime.
I ahve this guys number and will eat and drink elsewhere myself.
Argue if he must he still loses as he will not see another dime of my money!
Never Go There

The slippery pig obviously named after the female staff members,I was looking forward to some good bbq type food, hoping for a new place frequent. I dont know what was more disgusting the food or the behavior of the bartenders....the food was cold, tough and dry, and the bartender was sloppy drunk with a filthy mouth... again now I know where they came up with the name!!!
