Who We Are

Tom's High on the Hog Real Pit BBQ Inc. is a local BBQ Restaurant serving  Keystone Heights and the surrounding community.  Tom has lived in the community since 1976. HIs passion for BBQ grew during the late 70's. At the time Tom owned and operated a restaurant during early 80's in Keystone called "Tasty Cave," with his wife Cathy. They sold the restaurant during the mid 80's and focused on growing their catering business. Since then Tom has always wanted to open another restaurant. Tom and some friends of his were sitting at dinner one night catching up when one asked him what he would like to do next in life? Tom replied well you are not going to believe this but I'd like to open a little BBQ restaurant in my home town, my passion for BBQ grew from my first restaurant and I just can't shake the desire to serve the community I and Cathy have lived in for the past 40 years again . He and his friends took that moment and decided they could make it happen they would all  partner together to bring Tom's High on the Hog Real Pit BBQ to Keystone and the surrounding community. Tom, Cathy and their partners are excited to serve the community again, where their passion for food all began.


Tom's is committed to providing the highest level of quality products and providing superior service to the community. With this focus Tom, Cathy and their partners are determined to be a flagship restaurant in the community.
