APOPKA, Fla. — Porkie’s Original BBQ in Apopka has closed after 20 years in business.
Owner Steve White announced on Facebook on Tuesday that he had closed his barbecue restaurant on East Main Street near South Park Avenue.
“Thank you Apopka and Central Florida for 20 years of business and friendships,” he said in the post. “Porkie’s is officially closed.”
White opened the restaurant in February 2003.
The barbecue joint was known for its ribs, which were smoked in a 20-foot barbecue pit using oak and hickory woods.
“My love and dedication to the people I have worked with over the years will never go away,” White told Channel 9 on Tuesday. “The people of Apopka are the best.”
