Although the Georgia Pig serves breakfast daily and lunch includes nonsmoked fare like cheeseburgers, grilled chicken sandwiches, and Brunswick stew, no array of food items nor the coffee-shop setting can distract diners from the brick pit that sits front and center behind the counter and emits irresistible barbecue aromas. The Georgia-style sauce is thin and bright, the ribs thick and succulent, the chopped beef and pork sandwiches superb -- deeply redolent of hours basting above a plume of burning hickory. The sides could be better and more varied (fries, coleslaw, and beans are about it), but you can't go wrong with coconut cream pie for dessert, slapped down on the table by the friendliest of wait staffs. The homey restaurant is centrally located on 441 in Davie.
