Meating Out :: Carolina Pulled Pork simply Pulled Pork when in Carolina

Apologies for the lack of posts the past week but JMI was off vacationing south in the Carolinas.  Home to a sea of neon lights by night tempting you with buffets offering 114 items, strip clubs and beach shops – Myrtle Beach is a tourism loving city that boasts every imaginable chain restaurant out there.  Including, some places you’ve never heard of – What’s a Zaxby’s?

Coming from New York City where chains only exist in Times Square, a mom & pop – hole in the wall establishment in the SC area was hard to come by but alas, Little Pigs Bar-B-Q is an easily overlooked stop on a busy road somewhere between a gas station and Planet Hollywood.  With no real rhyme or reason to the inside decor, the aroma inside LP heightens your sense as you walk through the door and is a great alternative for those who don’t want fried.

The BBQ is flavorful, juicy and available in a variety of ways; the standard sandwich between a hamburger bun that’s piled high (ask for the slaw topping), a plate that includes two sides (pictured left) or chopped.  A sauce goer?  Have no fear because the Carolinas excel in four different, all of what are available; vinegar, mustard, mild or hot.

The Final Bite

If you’re looking for alternatives in the land of chain resto’s, bring $10 and an appetite,  because Little Pigs meets the standard southern protocol, excessive.
