Pig Iron Bar-B-Q

Restaurant
5602 First Ave S

The staff is of the young, hot variety and the food comes in only medium-huge portions on cool-looking tin trays, with sides nested in matching cylinders. Even though no one's calling you "honey," the hospitality's still fine, and the pulled pork is almost falling-apart tender, with crisped edges here and there.

LOVE ♥

We are a family of 5 and this place has something each of us love! Ribs for dad and the boy (they love to eat with their hands and get a little messy!), pulled chicken for our finicky little girls and a huge salad with avacado, corn, catfish and honey mustard for me!! Plenty of space for our little ones plus beer, wine and cocktails for us! My husbands company used them to cater a work party too--it was the perfect set up and everybody loved it. Can't beat Pig Iron!

Just like a BBQ restaurant ought to be

Unassuming and a little gritty with great sauces, pulled pork and sweet tea. Yum! Plus, they have a vegetarian option (fried geen tomato bbq sandwich) for you veggies out there. You don't find that at many southern restaurants.

Oh the spinach caserole!!

I would do anything for that spinach caserole!! Not to mention the great laid atmosphere, killer BBQ (really unique sauce flavor), and excellent staff! Well worth the drive south if you're not down there already!

Hotrods, Greasers, Pin-ups & BBQ

If you're looking for authentic BBQ in Seattle, Pig Iron is by far the place for it. The atmosphere is hip, the staff is friendly, and the food is the best!

The best in Sweet Potato Fries and Jalepeno Poppers

YUM! The Pig Iron "Rockabilly" BBQ is the best place to spend a lunch hour. If you work near by, you gotta stop in. THe food is to die for, the service is great, and the hotrods parked outside by the patrons are as good as any carshow~

Best Damn BBQ in Seattle

Do yourself a favor, and get to Pig Iron for some damned fine BBQ. The babybacks are the best in town! Pulled pork sandwich also rocks... Your choice of sauce, flavorful but not overpowering. And don't pass on the sides. The spinach casserole is the best kept secret in South Seattle. You will NOT be disappointed!

Remarkable Food

I was in Seattle for a weekend, and me and a friend stopped by the Pig Iron on the way out of town - what a find. I had the fried green tomato sandwich, and my buddy had the pulled pork, both of which were absolutely incredible. The side dishes and sauces were great, and the service was even better. These guys should consider a franchise here in San Antonio - they'd give these Texas BBQ joints a run for their money.
