THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Pig-n-Chik Restaurant Review: There's no fooling around with slow smoking barbecue at this establishment, an independently owned unit of JEM Restaurants, launched by Jim Graddy and Bill Marrack. The moist pulled pork and ribs are the meats to target, although there also is beef, chicken or “Uncle Rick’s” hot-smoked salmon, the latter served either cold (our preference) or hot. The house sauce is a thick, tomato-based concoction, but we far prefer the thinner Eastern Carolina vinegar-pepper and South Carolina-style mustard sauces. Brunswick stew is peppery and has good body although purists will quibble about the lima beans. Baked beans are similarly spiced. The Bubba lunch---Moon Pie and RC Cola---is available at this location, too, which closes earlier than the others (at 8 p.m. during the week and at 6 p.m. on Sunday). Beer is the only alcohol served.
