The building now known as the Pink Pig was originally built around 1950 for a country store and gristmill. 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. Located between Ellijay and Blue Ridge just off Hwy 515 on the old party of Hwy 5. It is conveniently located to the
many who come to enjoy.
Ask any local where to eat and they will give you directions to the Pink Pig. The fried chicken and 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 former Governor Zell Miller and radio talk show host Ludlow Porch.
Former President Jimmy Carter may even surprise you with a handshake and his famous smile when visiting the Pink Pig.
