|The Bearded Pig opened July 30, 2012 in Somerville.|
The Bearded Pig is a 40-seat Southern-style cafeteria joint you’d find in Texas, but it's conveniently in Somerville. Pick your passion from the counter - oak-smoked ribs, pulled pork, brisket and more - pay and grab a seat. The casual dining room with off-white walls and red accents is easy on the eyes. Owner and pit master Michael Schmidt said he is awaiting a beer and wine license, which could be dispensed in a few months. The Bearded Pig opened July 30, and it's open Tuesday through Sunday 11:30 AM-3 PM for lunch; 5-9 PM Tuesday through Thursday and Sunday for dinner; and 5-10 PM Friday and Saturday. It's closed Monday.
445 Somerville Ave., Somerville. 617-996-9080
