Piggie Park

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.

I grew up on Piggy Park hamburgers and BBQ. They have great Brunswick stew (there’s not many other stews I eat), and great slaw dogs also. This isn’t about “atmosphere” or “ambiance”, it’s about food.

The scramble burgers are enhanced by a special sauce: a mixture of mustard, ketchup and other ingredients. The BBQ is sliced and plentiful, cooked the old-fashioned way: slow-smoked over an oak fire. Ride around the Northside area any Tuesday afternoon if you don’t believe it. The fries are the best in the area, real potatoes cut and fried. Not mushed and formed like today’s fast-food McRestaurants.

Here is a bit of trivia: Wayne Cochran wrote the song “Last Kiss” while sitting in the parking lot of the Piggy Park when it was located on Highway 19 S.

Great Thomaston tradition.
