“When we open a new Martin’s, we’re always looking for a community vibe in a neighborhood setting. ” And they found what they went looking for in the 2203 North Main Street location. An application was made to the City of Columbia in July to remodel the old A&F Body Shop into the bbq restaurant. Surely the company is hoping to provide a perfect spot for local families and visitors to the Columbia area to kick back and enjoy their signature West TN Style Whole Hog BBQ.
A fresh hog goes on the pit each day for the next day. Typically, staff comes in at 5AM every morning and smokes a whole hog for 20 hours over hickory hardwood coals. They aren’t just BBQ… their menu also offers smoked wings and brisket, and they make all of our sides and desserts in-house (Coconut Cake, Pecan Pie and Fudge Pie).
The Nashville-based company operates six locations in Tennessee, two in Kentucky and one in Alabama. They also have a store on James Island in the Charleston area.
We’ll keep you posted on an opening date!
