Lovers of smoked meat will have a new place to eat Tuesday, when HogFathers BBQ, previously a food truck, has its restaurant’s grand opening.
The restaurant, near a Shell gas station, had a soft opening this week.
Matthew Hind, one of the operators of the restaurant, said the new restaurant at 1001 Elizabeth Street will have seating and take-out.
HogFathers started in 2015 and has grown from a tent to a mobile food truck to, now, a restaurant. It will be open 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday to Thursday, and 11 a.m. on 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
Some menu items include brisket, pulled pork, ribs, chicken, sausage and coleslaw, green beans, and macaroni and cheese. There also will be some restaurant-exclusive items, including a dish with chicken drumsticks.
The food truck will be scaled back now and will appear only at large social events, Hind said.
“We still want to keep our name out there and still go to fairs and festivals,” he said.
