Holy Hog Barbecue officially opens its first Coral Springs location on Nov. 1, specializing in southern barbecue along with a wide range of options.
Located at 4372 N. State Road 7 at the Turtle Crossing shopping center; the restaurant will be serving up pulled pork, smoked chicken, brisket, fried pigskins, St. Louis pork ribs, burnt ends, and a BBQuban sandwich with smoked ham, pulled pork, swiss cheese, pickles, and mustard.
According to co-owner Efren Knight, all of their food is slow-cooked to perfection. It follows a Holy Hog Barbecue’s motto, “good food isn’t fast; we don’t serve fast food.”
Knight, who grew up in Coral Springs, said that he and his family opened in the city because there aren’t many authentic barbecue options.
Other locations include Pembroke Pines and Delray Beach. They are also in the Tampa area, however, they are not owned by them.
According to Knight, the restaurant focuses extensively on reaching out to the community and providing excellent customer service.
While their grand opening is on Nov. 1, the restaurant is hosting two special events before then.
First, on Oct. 28, they are offering free samples and meals for diners between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m., then on Oct. 29, they are offering free meals to first responders between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m.
He said they want to be a neighborhood place where people can bring their friends and family and have a good time and a good meal.
“We want to build a staple in the community,” Knight said.
