Long Island may not be in the Deep South, but we can still enjoy the food they make there. So what is the best soul food and Southern restaurant on Long Island?

Long Islanders voted Pigs on a Wing the Best Soul Food and Southern Restaurant on Long Island in the 2022 Bethpage Best of Long Island contest!

Homemade fast food sounds like an oxymoron, but it’s exactly what you’ll find at Pigs on a Wing. Kurt Satzinger grew up in a family of cooks; his father and brothers all owned delicatessens, and his mother and grandmother were always trying out new recipes at home.

After 15 years in the music business, he decided to get cooking himself and offer his own take on New York comfort barbecue. His restaurant’s extensive menu offers fare for the barbecue aficionado and much more, from fried chicken platters and racks of ribs to classic sandwiches and seafood specials. Pigs on a Wing offers takeout, delivery, and online orders during all business hours and is happy to cater your next big occasion. Place your order and dig in!
