Wonderful Place we can count on to be there!

Maurice’s Piggie Park! When it all “started”, years ago, Joe Bessinger probably had no idea (around 1940) what a legend he would turn out to be. I think there are over ten locations now, not a major chain by any means, but nice S.C. tradition. This one in West Columbia has been our “target” for many years. Lived briefly in Columbia and found it to always be “good, fast service” and excellent flavor for my taste buds. Not being a fancier of the red sauce BBQ (tomato based? whatever), this is slow pit cooked tender with his famous (secret?) yellow mustard based sauce. Light, slight spiciness that doesn’t gag you (can add more). We would make runs from Charlotte down to “Piggie Park” especially for my mother – she would look wistful and say “anyone going to the Piggie” and of course we would. You can buy in larger quantities or opt for various dinners/baskets etc. She always wanted us to bring back several pounds of what she fondly called “the chopped piggie”
It’s great to eat in, casual, comfortable – always good service, never had a complaint (except traffic getting there!).

Dishes I tried:

Big Joe Basket

The “Big Joe” is a lot of pork on that bun – delicious – with hushpuppies – French fries for me, onion rings for the husband.
Slaw – it’s almost too good to try to talk about, better to eat!!! mouth waters thinking about that light mustard tang!
