Porky Pete's is tucked away near a gas station on Route 153 in Essex, CT--but the food is delicious and worth finding. Pete's does all the smoking on the premises, and everything is authentic North Carolina style BBQ. They offer outstanding pulled pork, either in a meal or served in a traditional sandwich with cole slaw. Meals can include sides such as potato salad, corn bread, skillet beans and mashed potatoes, all of which are unbelievable delicious! Pete's offers meals to go, catering, and desert as well.
