Pig Out Inn Barbeque
The southern charm, magnificent river views and gorgeous antebellum homes of Natchez, Mississippi are just a few of the reasons for motorcoach tour groups to schedule a stop here, at the oldest permanent settlement on the mighty Mississippi River. Another is for the authentic southern fare served up at The Pig Out Inn Barbeque, specializing in slow-smoked meats and homemade side orders.
This casual local favorite has been family-run since it opened 21 years ago. Owners Ann and Archie Willett learned the art of creating perfect barbecue in Dallas before moving to Natchez in 1996, when they opened The Pig Out Inn atop bluffs just one block from the Mississippi River. Meats, which come fresh from handpicked suppliers, are slow-cooked for 16 hours out back, in a smoker made to order in Dallas. Everything is made in-house, including the barbeque sauce and special spice rubs.
The select menu includes sandwiches and dinners and features ribs, beef brisket, pulled pork, chicken, turkey, sloppy joes and hot sausage. Dinner offerings include two- and three-meat combos and come with two homemade sides – cole slaw, baked beans, potato or pasta salad, chips, fresh-cut curly-Q fries, smoked corn on the cob, black bean and corn salad or mac and cheese. Tour passengers can top off their authentic southern barbeque feast with ice cream or a homemade mini-pie such as pecan or sweet potato.
Pig Out Inn Barbeque, 116 Canal Street, is just a few blocks north of Highway 84 and the Natchez Visitors Center. This central location provides tour groups with easy access to historic downtown Natchez, with its scenic streets, historic houses, churches and buildings, quaint shops and riverwalks.
Bus passengers can be dropped off and picked up right next to the restaurant, and drivers can park for free around the corner. Pig Out Inn staff will meet your group, pass out menus and have everyone eating a delicious meal in just a few minutes. The group leader and bus driver eat for free. “We will spoil you with our speed and efficiency, to allow your group more time to experience our beautiful city, where the old South still lives,” says owner Annie.
The Pig Out Inn is open seven days a week, from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and until 3 p.m. on Sunday. The facility can seat 115 to 120 people between the main dining room and enclosed patio. It is an open, airy, eclectic, light-filled spot with a down-home feel, friendly, helpful staff and reasonable prices, where everyone is welcome. Its motto is “Swine Dining at its Finest.”
