Hog Heaven, a longstanding barbecue eatery near Centennial Park in Nashville, will close after more than 30 years in business.

Owners Katy and Andy Garner announced via Facebook on Nov. 13 they will be retiring at the end of the month and closing the location after Thanksgiving.

“After 30 years of serving Nashville and enjoying everybody we will be closing on the 27th of November,” Andy Garner said. “We will be closed for Thanksgiving and will possibly reopen a couple of days after Thanksgiving, but this will be our last month. We’re retiring, moving onto other things that we will enjoy as much as we enjoyed this, but we’re going to be following other business paths.

The eatery, located at 115 27th Ave., Nashville, has been operating since 1986.
