One of My Favorite Quotes...

“The Master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both.”

Lil' Piggy's Bar-B-Q in Coronado, CA

I've been eyeing Lil' Piggy's Bar-B-Q in Coronado for some time now, but never found the time or the excuse to go check them out. That is until now. There was an offer/deal to try out their BBQ on Groupon and thought now is the time. Besides, I've been craving for some BBQ and don't want to wait in the long lines at Phil's BBQ in Point Loma and I wanted someplace new that I haven't been to. And as luck would have it or maybe it's like this all the time, it was pretty empty. But then again it was during the early afternoon on a Monday. Good for me...

So with the coupon in hand, I took a buddy of mine to check it out and get our grub on. I got the Big Portion of Pulled Pork Piggy Plate with white bread, mac & cheese and corn fritters as my sides for $14.99. Hoheezee got the Big Portion of Smoked Sausage Piggy Plate with white bread, mac & cheese and seasoned curly fries also known as Pig Tails as the sides for $14.99. I really enjoyed the corn fritters, especially with the honey butter that came with it. Frankly, I wanted more of it. The mac and cheese was alright and was real cheesy and creamy. The fries was nothing to write home to as it wasn't seasoned enough despite the name. Although the pulled pork was good and tasty and the portion was large and also would order again, I actually preferred the smoked sausage. Damn I should have picked that instead. Next time...

The above images are some close-up shots of the food. Looks pretty good huh? It's a lot of food and I wasn't able to finish all of mine. It was just too much for me to handle. Hoheezee on the other hand killed his plate with plenty of room for more. I just can't hang. All in all, I would come back to Lil' Piggy's Bar-B-Q again and try out the other dishes that they have. Some of the other BBQ items look very promising. And it doesn't hurt that I like visiting Coronado for food every now and then. The view of Downtown San Diego and the Bay is amazing. It's one of my favorite places to go to for sure. Oh, the service was great and very attentive. No complaints here. I should have ordered more coupons on Groupon for future visits. I just didn't want to waste my money if I didn't like it. And boy was I wrong, I should have gotten more...
