Who Else Wants Some B-B-Q?

The Pink PigPigE

If you are driving on the Appalachian Highway just south of Blue Ridge Georgia, you might want to take a sharp left in Cherry Log. There you will find a quaint little old building built around 1950. It was originally built as a country store and grist mill. It was purchased by the Holloway’s in 1967.

Pit cooked B-B-Q with Bud’s special sauce and homemade Brunswick stew cooked in an iron pot has made this unique place known far and wide. It has been said that the Pink Pig is to North Georgia, what the Varsity is to Atlanta. It is conveniently located to the many folks who come to the North Georgia Mountains looking to get away from it all if only for a weekend.

Ask any local person where to eat and they will give you directions to the Pink Pig. The fried chicken and homemade onion rings are almost as well-known as the garlic salad made with the “secret recipe.” All food is prepared to order so be prepared to wait for your fresh hamburger or steak to cook. Fresh cut “Bud’s Spuds” are cooked to order from “Real” potatoes.

The iced tea is rumored to be the best iced tea in the world according to the former Governor Zell Miller and radio talk show host Ludlow Porch.

Former President Jimmy Carter might surprise you with a handshake and his famous smile while visiting the Pink Pig.

Be sure to remember they are only open Thursday thru Sunday from 11:00 A.M. until 9:00 P.M.

  1. As long as they provide a place to sleep after such a meal! 🙂 I love these type of restaurants where everything is homemade, secret recipes, and the fact it was an old Grist Mill adds to the charm. Bet they are non-stop busy!

  2. Chad – I love the beautiful Blue Ridge Georgia mountains and a great Bar B Q place with home style family recipes – Mmmm the Pink Pig makes my mouth water. Beautiful views and Great Food – living in Blue Ridge GA is a real treat – when I have friends relocating to Georgia I’ll be sending them your way. – Cyndee Haydon

  3. Thanks for the great post Chad. One great reason to have contacts with local real estate agents is that they know all the good local info. You’re a great source for the Georgia Mountains. The post also inspired me to write about a few spots in town that visitors should know about.
