I walked past this truck at Second and Pike on Monday and did a double-take. Eric was intrigued too when I showed him a photo later, and we went back to investigate yesterday.
They only opened a few weeks ago. As yet, the menu is limited. The Maximus is a pulled pork sandwich with a hot sauce, while the Minimus has a tangy sauce. They have a vegetarian sandwich, chips made from potatoes and vegetables, and hibiscus and ginger lemonades.
I don’t much care for barbecue as a rule. The Minimus with a sprinkling of Beecher’s cheese was good, but not outstanding. The pork was flavorful and not overwhelmed by the sauce. The sandwich was a little small and inevitably messy. The ginger lemonade was pleasantly tart. See Yelp for more reviews.
The pig is very cool and undoubtedly draws a lot of business. There’s nowhere to sit near the Pig. We sat down at First and Union and looked down at the waterfront.
I’ll be back. Occasionally.
