Fueled by hickory smoke and guided by Deep South traditions like sweet tea, onion loaf and Sunbelt salad, Dover’s Where Pigs Fly has earned the respect of barbecue devotees since it opened in 1993.
Picnic faves like homemade broccoli salad and potato salad join Memphis-style pulled pork and pulled chicken sandwiches on the menu. But the centerpiece is the St. Louis-cut babyback ribs, which are slow-smoked before hitting the grill with a slather of tomato-based barbecue sauce. Grab a rack, or stack it with barbecued chicken, pulled pork, sweet potatoes, coleslaw and more for the famous Where Pigs Fly triple combo. Bring a bib.
