Just Okay Q. I think the reviews here are stacked. My biggest problem with this place is that every time I go there I feel like I am interrupting the employees from doing nothing. Seems to be privately owned and nobody ever seems to appreciate the business. Food is fair, not great and the place is always empty.

I could NOT taste the smoke flavor in the meat. My husband said he could smell it on his fingers. But he could not taste it as well. The meat was tender but I wondered if they cooked it in an oven and the smoker was just for show.
This BBQ place is small, clean, service was good. The atmosphere reminds you of eating in something like a cross between a regular fast food restaurant and Zaxbys. The potato salad was tasteless. The Brunswick stew was OK and the Baked Beans were OK... but they were not BBQ baked beans.

This place is a little hard to find in a shopping center on Roswell rd , But worth the hunt.
I Always have a great experience here. Most friendly and helpful staff. Don't think someother reviewer has really been here. These people are out of their way helpful to All the customers.
I must say Pig-N-Chik is the best BBQ in town , just like the food critics from the AJC said time after time.
The pork, beef, chicken and ribs are slapp your momma good. Stew is the best I have ever had.
$1.50 Pabst on draught...Love It !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Caution....once you try it the others will never measure up. I'm Spoiled.

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.

I went there with my girlfriend and saw the manager/whatever practically throw out a family of about 10 people (including several children).
These guys were spending nearly $100 and all these twerp could worry about was clocking out for the night.
The poor guy (father) called in advance too and the manager took his order but when he got there with his wife and kids, the idiot manager who was behind the counter told him that his family and him wouldn't be able to sit and eat because when he gets ready to close, they had to get out - but it was the *way* he said it.
I don't care how good the food is (mind you, only the sauce is good), if this is how you treat some folks trying to sit down and have a family dinner and maybe catch a game on TV, then you don't deserve to serve food.
To summarize - mediocre food (only the sauce is good) but TERRIBLE service when that guy with the baseball cap is there !

So many BBQ places in Atlanta, so little time. We were tired, and we wanted something delivered. Who would have guessed this little place on Roswell Rd. delivers. We ordered the pulled pork-tasty, smokey, and a super large portion. Good sides-BBQ Baked Beans, Brunswick Stew, and Cole Slaw. Not the best que in the ATL, but damn good for delivery. Sauce was tasty, not too sweert, with just the right amount of que twang.

Ordered up two meals and sat down to wait for our food. I noticed the receipt seemed a couple bucks high so I went to the register to ask about it. I was told that the posted prices were no longer in effect, everything was one dollar more. I told the man at the register that no one had told me that, as the posted prices are on a giant board above the register. He pulled out a little menu from under the counter and told me it was there that the changes were posted. He told me there was nothing he could do about it and walked away. I have never been treated with such disrespect in my life. Food was OK. Obviously customer service is of no concern for them.

I like BBQ that makes a statement and that includes all facets of the meal. It appears that their smoked meats are OK but I would hardly say that the sauce and sides measure up other BBQ locations in Atlanta. I think the new Smokejack in Alpharetta is the measuring stick as well as Fat Matt's.

I have ate at both Pig-N-chik restaurants the one on Roswell Rd. and the one on Preachtree Ind. Blvd.(that just opened up)and the food and service was great, but the one in Chamblee, GA. was better than the both of them. The employees at the Chamblee restaurant was more helpfull to me and my husband. I also seen the rate score 100% great job keep up the great work.

Like most people, I highly enjoy good BBQ, and Pig-n-Chik does not disappoint. The meats are moist, sides are good, and service is friendly. I'd highly recommend the cole slaw and potato salad. I've read complaints about the sauce, but I think it's great out of the bottle - lets me get more. :) Also, the prices are more than reasonable for the generous portions.

These fine folks have been doing a great job smoking que and pleasing a multitude of patrons the past couple of years, the first of many cropping up the last couple of years - Inside the Perimeter. The Pulled Pork, St Louis center cut Pork Ribs and Chicken have been well smoked & quite tasty. 'Even tasty Salmon for the Metro bunch. Sides are contemporary: fresh, good & wholesome; service is generally prompt. I'll admit the sauce is no great shakes, but the meats are suberb, portions generous like most 'que folks-classless classically trained chefs excepted-expect. For the record, this writer has smoked tons of 'que and ribs himself and judged same in both TX & GA; enjoyed/eaten 'que in a 100+ joints between Savannah & San Luis Opisbo. Yummmm.

Pig-N-Chick is the best barbecue place around...they have excellent pulled pork barbecue and best of all they actually have really good side items. I just moved from Sandy Springs to Marietta and I greatly miss Pig-N-Chick. I live within a mile of Williams Bros Barbecue which i've heard people rave about, they don't compare. Williambros. barbecue isn't anywhere near as moist and the sides are terrible, not just below average, they taste like Kroger purchased side items....but i digress, Pig-N-Chick is the best barbecue in town!!! Please come to Marietta!!!

The pork bbq is lightly smoked and I'd like to taste more. But I did like the pork and it is up there with Dusty's, IMO. Brunswick stew was pretty good but a little too sweet for my liking and beans were typically bland. Overall, I really liked it but it is not the best, IMO. I'll have to give it a few more tries and I had a big pork sandwich, stew, beans, and a Newcastle for under $10.

Their Pulled pork has almost become an addiction for me! Pure comfort food at its finest! Honestly can't tell you how perfect it is. Their Brunswick stew and BBQ sauce! as well as their smoked salmon salad Words fail me!! I am a picky eater.... like to eat only the best...Their constant high quality (trust me I have been there in the AM in the Evening right before close and still my order is perfect. Not to mention the friendly service has believing that I am always their special customer... seems like everyone I run into there feels the exact same way. If you don't visit or call them for a delivery, you are depriving yourself of outstanding BBQ...
