Hog Heaven: JD's Pig & Chicken

Every once in a while, a collection of scumbags and villains descends upon the Palmetto State, causing an epidemic of noise and a cloud of noxious vapors. But enough about the GOP Presidential debate on Tuesday... It's also Bike Week at the Grand Strand!

In the thick of all the chrome and leather of Bike Week stands JD's Pig and Chicken in Garden City. Garden City is neither a "garden" nor a "city" - kind of like Mount Pleasant in that regard. It's a "census designated place," however, and a helluva place to take a family vacation.

In the same vein, JD's isn't a "barbecue restaurant," but is rather a "righteous designated place" - also a great place to take the fam. There's no buffet, and the 'cue is vinegar based, but these are forgivable transgressions. The pork is superb, and JD's offers two sauces: the tomato-based "Texas" sauce and the vinegar-based "Hogg" sauce.

I ordered the "Bike Week Special," which was a sandwich, coleslaw and a bellywasher for $6 and tax. Somehow, the actual bikers a few tables over didn't seem impressed. Maybe the pastels gave me away, but what can I say -- my sleeveless "If you can read this, the bitch fell off" t-shirt is at the cleaners.

Gervais says, if you're on your hog at the Strand, and you could stand to get some hog, put down your kickstand at the Pig 'n' Chicken. Right across from Maze Mania on Highway 17 Business.
