West Seattle restaurants: Seattle’s Hog Heaven, ex-Jones Barbecue, reopens in The Triangle

October 5, 2012 at 4:40 pm | In West Seattle news, West Seattle restaurants | 10 Comments

Seattle’s Hog Heaven – formerly Jones Barbecue, as first reported here 3 weeks ago, though the new signage isn’t up yet – is now officially open again at 4417 Fauntleroy Way SW. WSB’s Katie Meyer spoke with Kimberly Jones, who says the menu is still the same Jones Barbecue menu, and the establishment still is — and will be — owned and run by Jones family members (Kimberly, in our photo below, and her husband William A. Jones).

Days/hours: Wednesday through Saturday, noon to 7 pm. Lunch specials run from noon to 3 pm. They take call-in orders (any call-in orders over $30 require a card number). There is, as always, parking in the back lot at the corner of the block (behind the under construction West Seattle Brewing Company).


  1. Why the name change and service interruption? I like the place and have had good meals there. But I’m puzzled.

  2. Onion, part of the reason, noted here previously, was a death in the family – the co-owner of the company died.

  3. Does that mean my groupon for Jones is no good now?

  4. J – you’d want to check with the coupon company. Earlier on in the closure, someone e-mailed us mentioning they had received a letter from that company saying the Jones location had “moved” to some other address elsewhere in the city.

  8. Well, my wife went by there tonight (Sunday, the 7th) and she said the restaurant is closed and is supposed to be open the 15th.
    Just a word to the wise (and hungry).

  9. They are only open Wednesday through Saturday now Jim. Don’t wait until the 15th, or you will be disappointed again.
