Swaggy P’s BBQ: Hanson, KY
Swaggy P’s is locally owned (and locally famous!). They specialize in hickory, slow-smoked BBQ. It’s evident that care and attention are given to each dish; take one bite and you’ll taste what I mean! Swaggy P’s is a restaurant that locals frequent, which I always try to be mindful of when choosing where to dine. The crowd and demand for their food speak volumes!
Swaggy P’s BBQ Menu
The menu features a wide array of deli sandwiches, including chicken salad, pimento cheese, jalapeño pimento cheese, clubs, and BLTs.
Sides include creamy slaw, vinegar slaw, potato salad, pasta salad, baked potato salad, baked beans, baked potatoes, french fries, green beans, and mac-and-cheese.
Out of the hickory-smoked pit comes pulled pork, smoked bologna, ribs, chicken, and other BBQ specials. Their weekly menu includes fun variations, such as a BBQ quesadilla and a BBQ burrito.
What I Ordered
I couldn’t resist the BBQ Baked Potato – wow, it was amazing! It features BBQ pork, butter, shredded cheese, bacon bits, house mild sauce, and sour cream. Homemade BBQ sauce options include the house mild, house hot, and honey bourbon. All are fabulous!
The day that I dined featured the rib special. If you want the ribs, be sure to call ahead to reserve a rack — they sell out. After eating them, I can attest as to why. They were incredible!
I also saw the smoked bologna sandwich, which set this country boy’s heart on fire. There’s nothing like it!
