It has been a pleasure to serve the Ashland & Richmond
communities for the past 32 years.
It is with great sadness that we
have to report that The Smokey Pig Restaurant is now
Since opening on September 6th, 1978, The Smokey Pig
Restaurant was a landmark for local residents and
travelers who appreciated its "elegantly informal"
atmosphere and fine home cooked foods.
The building that once housed The Smokey Pig dates back to
1927. 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 restaurant served continuously for 32 years, until
The name "The
Smokey Pig" came from many family attempts to create a
catchy name for their barbecue restaurant. "The Pig"
not only famous for its Hickory Smoked Barbecue, but for
the vast variety of home cooked and southern style meals
made on the premises daily.
Thanks for visiting us today. We hope that you enjoyed yourself,
for the many years, we were in operation. Please
remember "Dig the Pig"!
