Pig BBQ Joint
Jeff Hetherington’s winning Carolina-style barbecue menu has spurred a second location in the downtown core. Slow-cooked brisket and pulled pork are on point, and buttermilk-marinated crispy fried chicken could make the ColonelÑand his cardiologistÑweep. The daily sandwich specials (mouth-watering combinations of meat, scrambled eggs, cheddar, onion rings, pickles, tomatoes, waffles, and pig sauce) will have you begging for mercy, and homemade donuts (weekends only) are delicately sublime. Brisk take out with pig-sized portions. Beer and bourbon are the house quenchers.
