Tucked away in a quiet corner of rural Georgia, not more than 40 miles from the hustle and bustle of urban Atlanta lies one of the South’s best kept culinary secrets; Zebulon Georgia’s very own Oink Joint. Situated on a quiet and historic downtown-square overlooking stately Pike County Courthouse, The Oink Joint is den of southern Barbeque excellence, consistently serving up mouth-watering and heaping portions of smoked indulgences to locals and travelers alike. The food here is without doubt sublime and the location and décor showcase that the hospitality of the old-south is indeed alive and well.
The menu is simple, and the recipe divine. Perfectly smoked meats married to tangy yet robust red sauces with just the right notes of molasses and vinegar. This is southern BBQ done right. Whether you opt for the pork, chicken, ribs or brisket you will not be disappointed. In a time when many places pass off boiled meet as quality que, you’ll find none of that here. What you will find is quality meats smoked to perfection, rife with bark and smoke-ring saturated. But wait there’s more! The sides here are equally good, offering fresh made potato salad, baked beans, collard greens, Brunswick stew and more.
