I agree, Smoking Hogs sandwiches are soggy. I don't know what the heck they do to the bottom of the bun, but it's like they dipped it in water before they dished up the sandwich.

I have always had decent food and decent service at BBQ Man.

The originator of this post sounds like he is trying to disseminate lies.

I tried Smokin' Hog's sandwich the other day. Loved the flavor of the meat but I agree the bun was soggy. Maybe the juices from the slaw? Or the meat itself? Regardless, I will definitely eat another one! MmMmm.

Still a fan of BBQ Man though. I love their $4.50 lunch special. Sandwich, FF, and drink. Last time I got that from Hannah's it was over $7!!!!

If you're getting slaw on the sandwich and then transporting it home, that will make the bun soggy.

I buy pork by the pound there and have no complaints. Once I get the pork home, I add the sauce, place the pork on the bun, and chow down. No chance for a soggy bun that way.

I agree with you! You didn't mention that many of the church crowd
tend to:
Share a plate, drink water and run the server to death because the coffee refills are free.
Ask for extra bread and anything else that is free of charge, empty the sugar bowl and anything else on the table
Request extra lemons so they can make lemonade...they don't have to pay for a soda that way
Modify a menu item when ordering until it is unrecognizable to the kitchen staff
Since they tithe the church 10%, it's sacrilege to even CONSIDER
leaving the server a tip equivalent to that...$1 per person is MORE than generous in their mind
Worse yet is the verbal tip..."oh your service was sooo good! The best we've ever had! Thank you!" That's the kiss of death. Expect no tip.
OR...the wonderful religious flyer...esp. the folded ones that look like cash until you open them. Losers! Try paying your electric bill with one...imagine sending one of those to the utility company with a note praising their service and see how long you have lights in the house.
Lord I could go on and on...cheap, needy and
demanding self righteous jerks!
I guess I'll stay away since I am "church people". Relax I have never eaten there. I did however try out the Red Pig. I had good service the others with me had sorry service not entirely the waitress's fault but still I managed to leave the waitress a $10.00 tip because I was emabarassed the "nonchurch" people I was with did not. No one made you choose that for a living and you were made aware sometime your wage and that you would be depending on tips. Cry me a river. PS I used to work in a restaurant and I know all about it. The cook and the dishwasher work their guts out without a tip.

Ate at the BBQ Man for the first time Xmas Eve. Thought it was damn good with friendly service. Prices are cheap, so I have no problem with them having a shared plate charge. We'll be back.

I think you mean "The BBQ Man", not Pig Man. The BBQ Man is located in Lenoir, NC. There is no Pig Man in Lenoir.

I used to eat at Pig Man BBQ near Lenoir with a church group on Sundays. One lady at our church recently had surgery and not much of an appetite. She only ate a couple hushpuppies off her husband's plate. The waittress saw her and charged her for a meal. They were very nasty about it... just horrible people. I'll never eat there again, plus the food is not that good.

Since you once worked in a restaurant, then you should know that the cooks and dishwashers make more than the $2.13 per hour that the law allows these places to pay their waitstaff.

Folks, if you have bad "service", then yes the tip should suffer. If the problem originates in the kitchen, and the server does the best they can, then it should not. If you do not have enough cash to leave a decent tip (15% for adequate service),then perhaps you should dine at home.

My family and I tried BBQ Man only once. We do not care for Hannah's so wanted to try this place. WE did not like it any better. It was NOT true BBQ. If you want good BBQ drive down to Wild Hog's run by Raymond Dollar. Great southern BBQ with great prices and service. Well worth the drive.

Hog Wild is not worth eating either.

I like both places, but prefer the sliced barbecue at BBQ Man because it IS real, and I can see the cut and leanness of the meat. When it's chopped, shredded, pulled or whatever, you can't see what's mixed with it. (fat, etc.)

What IS real bbq by your definition BBQ fan? The BBQ man cooks his in the same fashion as the Dollars, only he adds a rub to the meat instead of vinegar. The sauces are different, but that's the same across the industry and is what makes it good to go to different places.

When my family is in the mood for BBQ, Smokin Hogs is where we go. We have never gotten bad food from there! They are very particular as to how they prepare and serve their food. Their Kansas City Burnt Ends are mouth watering!

I have tried The BBQ Man's food. I don't have a taste for it personally. That is not to disrespect him and say that his food is bad or anything like that. Fact is, different people have different taste buds.

I believe it is possible for similar resteraunts to prosper in the same town because of the differences in people's taste buds.

May all of our businesses thrive and keep customers coming back.

May all customers understand what it is like to be on the other side of the table too! You don't know what your waitress has had to deal with before you got there.

Do unto others and you would have done unto you, and that includes interaction with the world outside our homes.

May you ALL have prosperous businesses- BBQ Man, Smokin Hogs, Wild Hogs, and Hannahs!

I can't see how ANYBODY can stand ketchup or sugar in their "BBQ".

Now ribs I can see it..but not real BBQ.

Salt, black pepper, red pepper, vinegar.

That's it folks.

Come on down east and try the real thing!
