Pig In! Pig Out! BBQ Review

When visitors, clients, friends or whoever it may be comes into Wichita for a visit, a question I’ve heard many times is, “Where can I go for good bbq?” Since they are in the Kansas, they assume three things:

  • There’s a Yellow Brick Road Somewhere
  • Everybody is a KU fan
  • We have great BBQ
Unfortunately I have to break the news to them that only one of those three is true; the latter of course. While this isn’t Texas, Kansas City or anywhere else, Wichita is home to some really good BBQ. So usually one of the first options I’ll tell everybody is (drum roll please):
Pig In! Pig Out! BBQ
They are located at 1003 E 13th St. That is near 13th and Washington, also close to McAdams Park/Barry Sanders Football Field. They are open Tuesday-Friday 11:00 am – 7:00 pm and Saturday from Noon to 6:00 pm. You can visit their website here.
I’ll admit that when it comes to BBQ, I’m no professor of meat. I don’t grill out much or smoke meat, I just eat what people make and serve out. What I do know about is if my taste buds approve of the food I’m eating and in this case, it does.This is one of those places that is always in the discussion as the best BBQ in town and it’s hard to disagree with it. They display all the ribbons and awards they’ve won and it’s quite numerous. They have a very loyal following. Even when I went in there for lunch, it seemed like the workers knew everybody that came in. Almost like a “Cheers” but for bbq where everybody knows your name.

Pig In! Pig Out! BBQ can draw a really busy lunch crowd but the line moves pretty quickly. Don’t be intimidated by all the cars in the parking lot or the long lines if you go.

They specialize in ribs, pork, brisket you name it. Whatever you order, I’m fairly certain you’ll be pleased.

When I went in for lunch a couple weeks ago, I had the turkey, pulled pork, beans and pasta salad. As with any great BBQ place, they serve their meats without the sauce. You get it yourself if you want it. I used their sweet sauce because it was conveniently located at the table and I was too lazy to get up and grab any other sauce.

Let me tell you all, the meat was absolutely sensational. The beans had a nice zesty taste to it and the pasta salad is something I’ll order every time I go in.

I have yet to try the ribs and that is high on my list of “restaurant things to do”.

If you’re all looking for really good BBQ, this is one of the first destinations you should try.

Happy Dining,
