Have a different kind of a party
We are Mark and Connie Strassburg, owners of The Memphis Pig Out Restaurant. We came to Atlantic Highlands 21 years ago with the intent to introduce Memphis-style regional cooking to the Bay Shore area. We specialize in ribs and chicken cooked over hickory similar to the way it’s been done in Memphis for hundreds of years. According to Joan Hamburg, we make the best ribs in New Jersey.
Take a look at our menu and you’ll see we also offer an array of seafood and Black Angus steaks we cut ourselves. Our 40-item salad bar is the best in the estate! We prepare all but a few items in-house, according to southern family recipes in use for many generations.
Our original intent was to offer generous portions at reasonable prices so the customer could “pig out”! But a funny thing happened along the way. In addition to our core customers, we have developed a faithful following of vegetarians and calorie counters.
The salad bar can be a meal in itself, or accompanied by our vegetarian lasagna or grilled chicken, can be just the ticket for a broader ranger of appetites.
Life is uncertain, eat dessert first, and then there are the homemade desserts: Tennessee Hot Fudge Cake and fresh Strawberry Pie. Years ago, Gourmet magazine requested the recipe for the strawberry pie to publish in its magazine
Memphis Pig Out foods go to many parties. We have delivered as far away as Short Hills and provided food for as many as 439 people. There’s also a private party room downstairs. Call Mark for party details at 732-757-1920.
And finally, we are a family restaurant, kid friendly. We have high chairs, booster chairs, crayons, our version of chicken nuggets, and very strong vacuum cleaners. (There is also vodka for parents.)
Come see us, our goal is fast and friendly service and wonderful food in a whimsical homey atmosphere.
