- LARGE & SMOKY: Pig 'N-Chik's Hubcap Burger
The Pig 'N-Chik is a standard in the area for barbecue… with a sweet honey sauce and fall-apart ribs. People have recommended the place to me for the excellent catfish, both the cornmeal-battered version and Friday’s special of smoked fish. One of these days I’ll venture back over to find out more for you on that.
But this burger… came with a lot of recommendations. So I went in one afternoon and placed my order.
Didn’t take me long to get my burger, a plate-eating hubcap on a big seedless bun, a big thick smoky-scented burger atop a pile of shredded lettuce. The toasted bun had mustard on the top bun (a little much for my taste), mayo on the bottom, ridgy hamburger dills and just a hint of tomato. It comes with thick yellow fries and American cheese for $5.75. We’re talking a lot of food for a good price.
So how’s the burger? It’s big. It’s eight ounces and seems like more. Better yet, it’s char-grilled and has a nice smoky flavor that could only come from hardwood
If I’d realized I’d had a choice of cheese I’d probably have gone with Swiss. Cheddar, Hot Jack and Mozzarella are other options. The fries were typical but not too bad.
You’ll find the Pig ‘n-Chik on Highway 107 in Sherwood. It’s open Monday through Saturday 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.. (501) 834-5456 or check out the website.
