    BBQ Showdown

    Do you like BBQ? If you said "Yes," then why not saddle on down to Lady Luck Casino® Vicksburg for the Big PigOut dining event this November? The highlight of the month is the big BBQ Festival happening at Lady Luck Casino Vicksburg on November 8. Before we get to all that, let’s learn a little more about what you’re eating.

    What is Saint Louis BBQ?

    As you peruse The Big PigOut™ menus, you will see Saint Louis (STL) BBQ mentioned several times. Kingsford© – a leading BBQing Charcoal manufacturer – proclaimed Saint Louis as "America's Top Grilling City" with heavily-sauced, sweet, sticky, smoky, tomato-based barbecue! The U.S. Department of Agriculture even designated a specific "Pork Ribs, St. Louis Style" due to the numerous meat-packing plants in the area. Vicksburg might not be St. Louis, but these restaurants are proudly serving up this sweet, sweet style of BBQ!

    It's Swine Dine Time!

    Get your fill of ribs, pork and the fixin’s at the Big PigOut. You’ll be able to choose from BBQ meals served by a variety of restaurants, enjoy gaming and take part in some cool Facebook (FB) contests this November! You might even win your own grill and some spending cash too.

    The BBQ Festival!

    On Saturday, November 8, 2014 you’re invited to The Big PigOut BBQ Festival hosted just outside of the Lady Luck Arena!
