Yes, you read it correctly – that is the name of the restaurant my family and I ate at this weekend. I was looking for a great place to eat in Raleigh and I chose this place squarely on the name. It was a unique find in the city. The owners transformed an old piggly wiggly into a quirky southern restaurant and shopping venue filled with beautifully made items and pigs.
The upstairs was a quaint pig themed shop and the downstairs restaurant featured many cute pigs as well. It was a very visually inviting place.
We each had a really good meal. I had the filet minion, my husband had the pork chops and the kids had shrimp. All of the meals were good but my husband’s pork chops were to die for. The pork chops were extremely moist and came with collards and macaroni and cheese. I liked the shape of the macaroni and cheese. It looked like they baked it in a muffin pan. I may try that!!!
My other favorite thing about this restaurant were the kids drinks. My daughter ordered a drink called Zombie Brain Juice from “Always Ask for Avery’s” line of totally gross sodas. Even though the name sounded gross, the drink was a really good old fashioned soda.
After dinner we browsed the shop. I couldn’t fully enjoy the shop because I had to keep an eye out for my kids touching breakables. Browsing gave us some good laughs and even a few purchases. We bought some after dinner deserts that were fabulous. I would definitely recommend this place if you are in Raleigh and love PIGS.
