Terrible, terrible, service. Extremely rude staff. Good food but I won’t be back on account of the people’s character that work there.

One of the best BBQ in Champaign! Only complaint was that my rib tips had a weird aftertaste.

The food is not as great as people say. The restaurant itself needs a deep cleaning.

Gone downhill, even the pickles not very good now? I will continue to sample it from time to time, just to buy sauce and see if chicken sandwich as good as it was, if improved them pickles to be solid kosher dill with garlic greatness. I miss them having two locations

One of my favorite places of all time!I highly recommend the chicken and rib combo or the chicken sandwich with the sauce on it. Hopefully they reopen soon!!

Worst barbecue I have ever had. Had to get it to go due to covid. Horribly packed ; nothing was labeled. I ordered brisket with no bun; it was thinly sliced mostly fatty placed on top of french fries that I didn’t order. They omitted the cole slaw and the corn was soft and brown on the inside. I do not recommend this at all.

This place is a hit-or-miss. If you're lucky and can get the perfectly cooked beef ribs on a Friday, it's a steal. However, if you come in late, things may get overcooked and dry.

I have been coming to Lil Porgys since I can remember. And after today’s experience I will never be back. I ordered a large order of tips and what I got was a bunch of Griesel and bones. They put maybe 8 steak fries at the bottom. And it just plain sucked. I called the store to talk to the manager and all he could say is sorry about your luck. If I could do anything it will be going down the street to BoBos bbq probably will be more worried about there customers!!

I come here every year since I moved for NC. The BBQ is the best I ever had! I even take a couple of gallons back home with me. Anything on the menu is worth trying but the fish. Never had it. Its the sauce for me and the open pit they cook on. See yall next time!

Good bbq, fast service and good lemon shakeups. The latest was off though

Highly recommend getting the sauce in the side. By default the sauce is poured on the sandwich or protein and it gets soggy by the time you get home. Otherwise the consistency of the meat can improve but mostly all good!

Great staff and crew, and great bbq! A must for bbq snobs like me. Highly recommend!

It's okay, good bbq, just not my type of place. But I know people that are die hard for this place!
