Little Pigs Too Barbeque, 11210 Broad River Road: December 2011   2 comments

Posted at 12:16 am in Uncategorized

Once upon a time, this building was The Whale's Tail and then Rubino's Italian Restaurant. More recently it has been the second location for Alpine Road's Little Pigs Barbeque -- in fact, after the Alpine Road store caught fire, and before it was repaired, this was the flagship location, though it's hard to imagine a place further away from Alpine Road but still "in the Columbia area".

The building does not seem to be up for sale, and is still furnished, so perhaps the owners have plans to re-open, or open a different restaurant here.

(Hat tip to commenter Nobody).

UPDATE 17 June 2013 -- Cletus' Roadside Grille is now operating in this building (and has been for a while):

  1. They closed after Labor Day 2011. I was sad to see them close but it didn't surprise me. All of the BBQ had to have been shipped from the Alpine location as they did not have any smokers or pits in the Broad River location unless someone installed them after the Whale's Tail was there (I should know, I worked at the Whale's Tail YEARS ago). The food was always comparable to the Alpine location but the hours of operation were very sketchy. They were only open for about 4-6 hours a day 3-4 days a week (but they always had a good business the few times I went by there). I heard that they had inherited or bought the catfish recipe from the old Jake's restaurant (another Ballentine/Chapin restaurant that I remember from being a kid). They actually had a catfish night before they closed, but I missed out on that.
