Since opening on September 6th, 1978, The Smokey Pig Restaurant has become a landmark for local residents and travelers who appreciate its "elegantly informal" atmosphere and fine home cooked foods.
The building that houses The Smokey Pig dates back to 1927, when it was built as a general store, with lodging upstairs. Robert S. Jeffers purchased the building in July of 1978. After just six weeks of renovations The Jeffer's family opened for business. The name "The Smokey Pig" came from many family attempts to create a catchy name for their barbecue restaurant. "The Pig" is not only famous for its Hickory Smoked Barbecue, but for the vast variety of home cooked and southern style meals made on premises daily.
Thanks for visiting us today. We hope that you have enjoyed yourself. Please take some time to visit us at the restaurant and see the many "Pig" items that are on display. Many of these items were gifts from the many people who "Dig the Pig"!
