The Kickin’ Pig’s barbecue smokers on Cherry Road in Rock Hill are up and running again.
Owner Mark Miller reopened the restaurant last week after being closed for several weeks. He’ll be closed today for Christmas, he said, but hopes his customers will support his reopening on Thursday.
At some point while the restaurant was closed, someone stole neon beer signs from the windows, according to a Rock Hill police report. The signs were on loan from a local beer distributor. The thief sold the signs – worth $300 – at a Cherry Road pawn shop, the report states. Police have made no arrests.
Kickin’ Pig will operate in its current location at 1227 Cherry Road until a planned Walmart Neighborhood Market is built there. The development also will displace a fireworks stand and a car wash.
In the coming months, Miller said he hopes to relocate the Kickin' Pig to the old Shoney's restaurant location on Cherry Road.
