Had to wait 35mins for ribs as had run out. Would have thought that you should’ve given some complimentary starters but didn’t!!
Ribs a little fatty.
Lighting terrible but otherwise it was a reasonable dining experience. Not sure if I’d bother to go back!

Food was lovely and generous portions. The ambience was very American smokehouse and strong connection to Tennessee, a lot of jack Daniel through the menu and decor.
We didn't try any this time around but seems like the drinks are good to as a few couples came in just for a drink towards the later end of the evening

Porkys has the look of your quinessential American Barbecue joint with dim lighting, friendly staff and stripped down decor that allows the food to take center stage.

The menu covers all your usual suspects with ribs galore along with pulled pork, burnt ends, burgers, wings and things accompanied by staple sides such as barbecue beans (standout side), coleslaw and fries.

The meat in general is cooked pretty well, some come with sticky barbecue sauce, others are of the dry rub variety. My only criticism is that the chicken seemed to have been kept on a hotplate with the meat dried out although soft. Felt a little disappointed as the ribs were tender and well flavoured and the pulled pork still retained all its juices having been slow cooked. Other than the aforementioned 'coq' up, the food is good if not spectacular.

Porky's price wise competes with other like minded establishments such as Big Easy and Bodeans but unfortunately without quite the same execution. Given it's location it might be considered a little expensive for what it offers, but you will never go home hungry!

As expected the food was 5star
Service was excellent by friendly staff, they wasn't rushing you or bombarding you.
Would highly recommend the burgers, my son said the ribs were the best he has ever had. We didn't wait long for our food or drinks.
