Going to Columbia next weekend, and I'm meeting some friends who've moved from NC to NYC. They will be craving BBQ and all the fixins. My preliminary search reveals the Palmetto Pig as an option. Any opinions on that place, or other spots I might check out?

    If you are looking for a place in Columbia, Little Pigs is the best option. Good variety in their buffet and lunch time is always bustling. It's a drive to the other side of town though. Big T's is also outskirts of town but an option for mustard bbq, over Palmetto in my book. If you want to adventure out, McCabes is about an hour out in Manning and totally worth a visit on days its open. Hite's BBQ out in Batesburg-Leesville is also a drive but good and an experience just being out there.

      We're staying on the same side of town as Little Pigs, so that sounds good. We're there on a football Saturday for USC. Any chance of getting in without a lengthy wait?

        It can be busy but the line moves fast since it's a big place. Should be fine!
