Harry and Sallie Thompson opened Piggy's Ice Cream Parlor in 1979. They along with their three sons: Todd, Michael, and Jeff. Piggy's sold ice cream and antiques. In 1993 the restaurant opened. Four months later, Harry died suddenly from a heart attack. Sallie and the boys decided to name the restaurant after him. Today Harry's Grill and Piggy's Ice Cream Parlor are still open.
We arrived too early on a Sunday and did not have a chance to sample any food or peak inside at the antiques but the outside satisfied my love of roadside attractions.
The antique store had a gem from my childhood, Officer Big Mac!
Many other whimsical finds abounded!
If you find your self in Hendersonville, NC or you are traveling from Atlanta to Asheville, this is only 2 miles off the highway and definitely worth a stop.
