Black Eyed Pig was born in the Shirley Street location on October 28, 2008. Purchased as The Classic Café, the restaurant was transformed from a long standing breakfast and lunch sandwich shop with a dozen seats, to it's current capacity of 36 and open for lunch and dinner only.
Osburn began his BBQ apprenticeship program with Jerry Vandergrift in 2004. Carl assisted Jerry with prepping and cooking for several catering events and charity functions. Jerry is the second owner of Van’s Pig Stands, which Jerry’s parents founded in Shawnee, Oklahoma in 1930. Jerry's kids now run the operations of all 5 Van's locations, 86 years later! Thank you so much for the education and friendship Jerry!
