A new barbecue buffet restaurant, "The Big Pig", has opened on Hillsborough Street near 15th in Durham. The building was a Mexican restaurant and before that a Chinese restaurant. Last week, there is a taqueria wagon parked next to building, reflecting its Mexican heritage. The building still looks like a Chinese restaurant from the outside. It'll be interesting to see how it looks on the inside.
AW's has been sold and renamed Backyard BBQ Pit, but has kept the same barbecyue chef.
