BBQ Thursday: Speedi Pig, Fayetteville

A few weeks ago now, life took me over to Fayetteville, and having a little bit of time during the lunch hour, I found Speedi Pig.


Speedi Pig was nothing fancy.  Just a typical little barbecue joint that had your standard fares.  I did notice that if you were someone with a rap sheet, you might want to stay away.  There were more cops in there than at a Baylor football practice.

Speedi Pig can’t be sued for false advertising, the food came out quite speedi.  I ordered the basic plate.  I thought the school lunchroom trays was a nice touch.


I don’t really eat slaw, so I can’t give a report there.  The pulled pork was just “so-so”.  Not disgusting, not great.  Nothing special there.

What saved the lunch, though, was the stew.  This was some of the best Brunswick Stew I’ve ever had.

If you’re in the neighborhood, I suggest you try another meat option but definitely get the stew.  Or just skip the meat and stick to the stew all together.  But no matter what, get the stew.

    If you like good stew, give Striplings stew a shot. Its pretty damned good and given that its less than a mile from my house, I get a quart at least once or twice a month. Stew and a pone of cornbread makes a fine supper!

    Two comments Corbindawg…

    1) If you have a rap sheet, you might want to simply stay out of FAYETTE COUNTY!
    2) You should have treated yourself to the Speedy Pig PIGLETS….some good eating; a kin to a BBQ Krystal burger.

    If you return to Speedi Pig, try the wings. When I had them, they were very good.

      I have tried two BBQ’s in savannah lately, Both boasting big write-ups. First B’s crackling BBQ. Meat was dry, but the thin red sauce was good. The tea was nice and sweet, the sides beans and collards were average. Second was Wiley’s out toward Tybee Is. The pork was moist, but average, the tea was not very sweet and the sides I got, collards and red beans, weren’t anything special. Bill without tip was $16.20 ! Maybe it’s me, but I never have any luck with BBQ’s in strip malls. (both were)
