Preppy Pig BBQ, named Rhode Island’s best BBQ by Thrillist, is closing its doors today at both the Warren and Jamestown restaurant in search of a bigger and better spot for their acclaimed barbecue cuisine. Both locations will be open under different ownership, and although they may look similar, they are not Preppy Pig BBQ. Owner Patrick DeSocio looks forward to sharing some very exciting news about the new location soon.

“Please keep watch on all social media as we can’t wait to fill you in on our next move and can’t thank you enough for helping put RI on the BBQ map,” said Patrick, “We look forward to seeing you in our new digs soon! In the meantime, our catering schedule is filling up quickly for 2017, so if you’re looking to book an event, please get in touch via info@preppypigbbq.com. Thank you again and Happy Holidays!”
