Piggie Park

U.S. Highway 19 North, Thomaston, GA - (706) 648-3330
Posted By Bill Golladay on 3/15/2004 11:25:00 PM
Piggie Park is a fifties-style drive-in. The road sign in front has a big pink pig and says “since 1950.” While this small town setting may be nostalgic for some, the reason that most people come here is strictly the food.

The barbecue sandwich of chopped pork is very flavorful. The sauce has a tomato base and is mildly hot. Brunswick stew is sold as a main course and not as a side dish. This stew is any excellent representation of this traditional Georgia dish.

The cheeseburgers are another good choice. At one time in the past, you would have to ask to get a “scrambled” burger at Piggie Park. Now, however, if you order a cheeseburger, it comes “scrambled.” But the regular hamburger will be just a normal hamburger patty.

The home-style fries are small-cut and have a good potato flavor. There is one caution on the size of the soft drinks. The small drink is a child-size and may be too small for most adults.

The menu at Piggie Park is limited, but very enjoyable.

Note: This Piggie Park is NOT affiliated with Maurice’s Piggie Park in South Carolina and the barbecue sauce is not a mustard-based sauce.

Note: Closed on Monday.

We've never had a frosted orange anywhere else but The Varsity in Atlanta.  Ultra-thick, with a strong orange flavor, we really enjoyed it.
