Porky D's Bar-B-Que.....

Old Porky D's BBQPorky D's has been open for many years at the intersection of Old Two Notch Road and Emmanuel Church Road in between Lexington and West Columbia, SC. The old site didn't have run for seating customers and was strictly care out. You also had to make sure you went early enough on a Saturday afternoon or they might run out of BBQ. :-( Porky D's has great ribs, chicken, and BBQ in a mustard vinegar sauce. Their hash is one of my favorites. :-)

New Porky D's BBQWhen I recently took this pic of Porky D's new home it wasn't quite ready for operation (end of January). It has since opened. I haven't been to the new place yet, but I've been told by all my sources that the BBQ is still wonderful. And they picked Homey up a MENU. The new restaurant has plenty of seating and is located just west of the old site on Old Two Notch Road (just off Highway #6 to the east). Mmmmmmmmmm BBQ!

Great site! I too love the Q. I recently joined the SCBA and hope to become a certified bbq judge by the end of summer.

Porky D's could easily hold 3 or 4 times more customers had they decided to build it roomier. I have been twice to the new facility and both times we had to wait. My wife's favorite item is the collards! I am more of a connoiseur and think the only items allowed at a BBQ restaurant should be Q, hash and rice, ribs, baked beans, bread and banana pudding. I was disappointed that there is no buffet and it costs a lot if you want "All-U-Can-Eat." To me BBQ you can serve with an ice cream scoop has been robbed of a lot of its character and flavor. It reminds me of Maurice's Mess, so I would give it a C+ with the hash getting a B. The staff was very friendly and accomodating, though, and the building and grounds are neat and clean. I will certainly go back, but for some real BBQ try Sweatman's in Holly Hill.
