Welcome to Pig in a Poke!

Pig in a Poke serves up the best pit BBQ in Kentucky and offers a great menu of savory, delicious meats, including hand-pulled pork, slow smoked beef brisket, and tender, juicy baby back ribs. Our meats are smoked over real hickory wood for authentic hickory flavor, and everything on our menu is made fresh every day. Stop in today and taste the sensational BBQ that made Pig in a Poke great!

As a family owned and operated establishment, it was important to owners, Brian and Tammy Cramer, to create a place where they could bring their children and their parents to eat and enjoy themselves and where other families could do the same. Pig in a Poke is that place, offering visitors a welcoming, family-friendly atmosphere where diners can have a drink and enjoy good conversation over great food.

Pig in a Poke offers two convenient locations. Our two-story Prestonsburg restaurant features a spiral staircase that leads upstairs to a full service bar, while our Pikeville location features a spacious patio area that overlooks the river. At both restaurants, you’ll find the same great atmosphere, friendly service and amazing menu of choices! Visit either one today and try our incredible BBQ that has to be tasted to be believed!

We look forward to your next visit!

“We appreciate the business of our customers, and we’re glad that, with all the other choices out there, you choose to dine with us!”
