Venue Info

Housed inside a weathered shack in Eliot, The People's Pig is serving up near-sinful BBQ, including a next-level smoked fried chicken sandwich that requires you wear anything but white. Grab a swivel chair at the counter, a cozy booth, or a picnic table out back, and prepare to get messy -- the crispy-skinned chicken thighs are smoked to perfection and coated in a house-made jalapeño jelly that you'll want to lick every last dollop of and jar for yourself. While this hefty creation is the star (did we mention it's served on charred sourdough?), there are plenty of pig-centric options, too, as this joint's name would hint, like melt-in-your-mouth baby back ribs and juicy slices of pork shoulder. Meat isn't everything here, though, considering the cast-iron cornbread trickled with honey will visit your dreams for nights to come.
