The Pink Pig BBQ
The building now known as the Pink Pig was originally built around 1950 for a country store and grist mill. It was purchased by Bud and Jacque Holloway 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 half way between Ellijay and Blue Ridge just off Hwy. 515 on the old part of Hwy. 5, it is conveniently located to the many who come to enjoy the beauty of the North Georgia Mountains.

Ask any local person where to eat and they will give you the 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 french fries are cooked to order from "real" potatoes.
The iced tea is rumored to be the best iced tea in the world according to radio talk show host Ludlow Porch and former Governor Zell Miller. Former President Jimmy Carter may surprise you with a handshake and his famous smile when visiting the Pink Pig.
