My old friend Malcolm Johnson started Purple Pig and recently sold it due to poor health. The food continues forward with some added attention to weekend live music and indoor seating. It's a casual place with good food!

When we first found this place we had just moved here and it was the best ribs I've ever had !! Two years later I guess they're under new management. I don't know what they did but, they changed the menu...now the ribs are OK not any different than any other place around.
