Folks from near and far venture to a place born Hog Heaven. Ron incorporates his love of food, travel and riding into a place where folks were not only served large portions of delicious pork dishes but were served friendly smiles, in a fun laid back atmosphere!
Ron and the entire Hog Heaven staff give back to the community through Annual Motorcycle Runs, Memorial Funds, Scholarships, and a friend or two in need. We are glad your travels landed you here, you entered as a stranger, but you'll leave as a friend! We hope your experience at Hog Heaven will leave you squealing with delight!
It all started in May of 2000 when Ron Rosenthal, with a love for southern cooking and a few extra bucks in his pocket, opened a small 16-seat Hog Heaven restaurant on Front Ave. in New Philadelphia, Ohio. Initial response was so strong that Ron was forced to offer carryout and delivery, requiring him at times to personally deliver meals on his Harley Davidson Road King motorcycle. Within the first year, the Front Ave. location was expanded to seat 40 indoors and 12 outdoors.
