Today, after going to the prosthetist and having some tweaks made to my prosthesis, I went by a BBQ place called the Hickory Pig for lunch. The Hickory Pig is in Gainesville, GA and is an incredible place. It is a dive restaurant that serves the juciest, possibly most delicious, pulled pork sandwiches I have ever had. I read about it after I left and saw that people rave about their hickory burgers too.
I was the only one in the restaurant and was served by “Lil Bit” a waitress who has worked there for the past 8 years. We had a good talk as I inhaled the amazing sandwich and then she showed me around the small operation they are running. She took me out back and showed me the smoker, loaded up with meat being infused with the hickory smoke that is their signature, as you could have guessed by the name of the restaurant. Phil the owner was out back and was a very nice guy as well. We had a quick chat before I took a few pictures and headed back into town.
If you are ever in the neighborhood, you should definitely make it a point to swing by. You won’t be disappointed that you did! Their address is:
