Coming to you today from the Improper Pig in Fort Mill, South Carolina. Today's meal started with the twice baked jalapenos. They have cream cheese and chorizo in them. Very tasty and definitely smoking hot. The star of the show today, is called improper charcuterie. It has pulled pork, brisket, ribs, andouille sausage, pimento cheese, slaw, crispy chips and pickled onions. On top of all that, they have six different styles of sauce. Every one of them was so different and so good in their own way. My favorites of the bunch was the queen bee, which is a honey barbecue that has a very heavy honey flavor, in the Mary B's which is a tomato-based sauce. The building is tucked in right downtown in Fort Mill. It has tons of really cool light fixtures and partially exposed brick on the walls. It was absolutely worth going out of route for this meal. My server checked back many times to make sure I was doing okay. It was a lot of food you know.
Just had the pleasure of enjoying some dessert from here to cap off my Sunday drinking. Spent the day with a couple friends brewery hopping and wanted a sweet treat next door to amor artis. We had the cobbler and banana pudding. Thought I was supposed to have peach cobbler but it was blueberry... thats okay. And the banana pudding was a little too fluffy for me- needed more southern girth! But still yummy nonetheless.
Small cozy restaurant with great service. The burger was very good and the sweet potato fries were the best I have ever had. The sliders were on the show dinners, driver ins and dives and were told to be great, but we're just okay for me. The bread used didn't seem fresh and store purchased. Overall great meal and would go back.
All seven of us loved our meals! Great food and service! Some of the best bbq Ive had in the area. We will be back!
We gave this place a try and fell in love with it. The service was good the food was good will definitely be coming back. The location right downtown Is perfect.. We live in Columbia and thought Fort Mill was so nice that we are actually considering moving there.
