A shout out to Allied Van Lines for making Whole Hog Cafe one of their Top Places to Visit after moving to Springfield MO. We’re in good company, as they also recommended The Missouri Institute of Natural Science, a really cool science museum near Rivercut; the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame, a great place to remember such heroes as Stan Musial and Lou Brock; and Relics Antique Mall, which is a seriously fun place to spend a few hours sifting through 90,000 square feet of treasures such as old vinyl records, vintage toys, or a 19th century church pew.
Here’s what Allied Van Lines had to say about Whole Hog Cafe:
The Whole Hog Café is a casual restaurant featuring slow- barbecued meats and homemade sauces. The secret recipes have been in use for generations, and some of the most popular dishes include pulled pork and pulled chicken sandwiches, beef brisket, pork loin, sausage and ribs. Sides include coleslaw, onion rings, biscuits, french fries and macaroni and cheese. You can wash down your meal with beer or a soft drink. If you want to do your own grilling, you can purchase the restaurant’s sauces to use at home. Catering is available for special events, and the food can be delivered or picked up. Whole Hog Café has earned many industry awards, including the Memphis-in-May World Barbecue Championships for first place in the “Whole Hog” category in 2002 and second place for ribs in 2000, 2002 and 2008.
Thanks, Allied! We love Springfield too so we don’t think we’ll be moving anytime soon but if we do–we’ll be sure to call you.
