For the price, I expected a whole lot more
I heard rave reviews about Pig n Chik, so I was excited to try out the place. I wasn't completely disappointed, but I just expected so much more for my money. He ordered a pork sandwich with a side of hush puppies, I ordered a small pork platter with two sides, and we both ordered sodas - totaling just over $17. They gave us two cans of soda and two cups full of ice. It seemed wasteful to offer both the can and a cup - why not just get a fountain dispenser?
Service was fast - a server brought our food after we ordered at the counter. The potato salad was excellent, broccoli was broccoli (it's pretty hard to mess that up), but the pork was cold and had some gristle to it. They also threw a slice of bread on the plate - not toasted or anything. The only reason I can think of is in case anyone wanted to make a half-sandwich, but if I wanted a sandwich, I would have ordered one. No butter or anything for the bread, so it just kind of sits there.
I guess I was expecting swoonworthy BBQ, but it was very, very average. To be honest, I thought it was comparable to Smokey Bones.
