If you’ve ventured down North College Avenue in the past few months, you might have noticed that the old Long John Silver’s restaurant at the corner of Sycamore Street has a fresh coat of red paint, and that a large meat smoker has been installed behind the building.
Today we found out why.
A sign for the new Smokin Hog BBQ went up yesterday, and as of today, they’re officially open for business.
The restaurant serves what owner Kirby Freeman called “non-traditional bbq.”
“We don’t smoke any brisket here,” he said. “Our beef is a beef shoulder. We do a good pork loin, and we have good ribs.”
The menu includes sliced beef sandwiches, pork loin sandwiches, hot links, “Daddy back” ribs, burgers, salads, and more.
Smokin Hog B-B-Q is located at 1705 North College Avenue and is open 7 days a week from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
