"Apparently BBQ is on the menu for what Cleveland needs. Proper Pig got started in the food truck scene, but just opened up their first brick & mortar location in Lakewood right around the opening of Mabel’s.  Enjoy this Texas-style BBQ, located in the old Cleveland Pickle location in Lakewood."

"Since launching a food truck more than two years ago, owners Shane Vidovic and Ted Dupaski have quickly gained notoriety for their legit slow-smoked, Texas-style barbecue (just look at the charred crust on that brisket), so much so that Proper Pig is set to open its own shop in Lakewood this spring. That’s great news for those who prefer their barbecue stationary, with a cool side of beer, or bacon on a stick."
