Our History

Whole Hog Café has been serving New Mexicans award winning Memphis style Barbeque since 2006.  Whole Hog Café competes in the Memphis–In–May and Kansas City Barbeque Championship circuits.

Founders Mike “Sarge” Davis and Ron Blasingame competed as “The Southern Gentlemen’s Culinary Society” throughout the South and Southwest developing the dry rubs and recipes which now are prepared daily at Whole Hog Café. Along their journey Sarge and Ron created 7 exceptional sauces to complement their pecan smoked meats.

Sarge and Ron’s passion and commitment to excellence are reflected daily in all that is served at Whole Hog Café.
