About UsThe Whole Hog Café & Catering Company prepares the same award-winning recipes that won top honors in the 2000, 2002, and 2008 Memphis-in-May World Barbecue Championships – including 1st place in the Whole Hog category in 2002.
Competing as The Southern Gentlemen’s Culinary Society and opening Whole Hog Café in 2000,Whole Hog founders Ron Blasingame, Mike "Sarge" Davis, and Steve Lucchi long devoted themselves to the pursuit of barbecue perfection. Their devotion is reflected in the wildly popular dishes served in the Whole Hog Café each day – succulent pulled pork, tender beef brisket & smoked chicken, and of course, Whole Hog's award-winning ribs.
