The Piggery

(October 30, 2011)
1625 W. Irving Park Rd., Chicago, IL 60613
The Piggery on Urbanspoon

A Quick Word:
A great bar atmosphere with amazing menu items focused around the Pig.  The food is all pretty good... just remember they might put BBQ pork on everything.  And they struggle at times to make some of the easier dishes.  And sometimes it is a little too loud for my liking.

What I Ate:

BBQ Pulled Pork Nachos

Best dish by far!... Nacho chips covered with handfuls of pulled pork, jalapeƱos, olives, nacho cheese, guacamole, sour cream, and served with a side of BBQ sauce.  This is a meal in itself... and in my opinion a MUST TRY appetizer to share!

BBQ Pork Eggrolls

How to make egg rolls even better?  Put slow cooked pulled pork and coleslaw inside, deep fry them, and then dip them in BBQ sauce!!!  It comes with sweet and sour sauce... BUT ASK FOR BBQ sauce to dip... its much better!

Chorizo Stuffed Burger

Extremely juicy burger... cooked to medium (I asked for medium rare)... the chorizo made it a little spicy but honestly it was overshadowed by the char on the burger.  I wouldn't go with this stuffed burger.

BBQ Pork Stuffed Burger

This burger was my brother's... The BBQ pork was placed right on top of the medium cooked burger... it was topped with onion rings and in my opinion had the most flavor.  The BBQ sauce really came through!  GET THIS ONE!

Gouda and Bacon Stuffed Burger

This burger was my other brother's... stuffed with gouda cheese and bacon!  Also more flavor than the chorizo because the char didn't overwhelm it.  and the fries wow those are good!

The DOs/DON'Ts:

- Ask to sit in the back... its not as loud as the bar area and there are still TVs to watch the games!
- SHARE the BBQ pork nachos... if you don't you will be sad!
- Drive here... they have a small parking lot in the back!

- Stay away from the Chorizo Stuffed Burger!

How far would I walk for this food?
