Hoggy's is home again. The barbecue chain has reopened a restaurant at the site of its first, at 2234 W. Dublin-Granville Rd.
That location in the Linworth area had closed in 2006 in a dispute with the landlord. A pizza place took over the space but soon closed. And that's when Tim Huter, Hoggy's CEO, jumped at the chance to reclaim it, the Dispatch reported.
The new old Hoggy's is a little fancier than when the original one opened in 1991. Then, it was just a small barbecue joint housed in a former ice-cream shop sandwiched between a grocery store and a gas station on a commercial stretch of Rt. 161.
