It seems like forever since we were able to announce the opening of a new restaurant . . . but this one is a barbecue restaurant, and that’s worth a little extra attention:

Oink, a new barbecue joint, has hit the scene in L.A.–Lower Awendaw, that is–in a refurbished green cinderblock building on Highway 17 up past Park West (3563 North Highway 17, if you want to be exact). They feature Eastern North Carolina barbecue, including chopped pork, a spicy vinegar sauce, slaw, barbecue potatoes, and hushpuppies. Oink is open for lunch and dinner seven days a week. (843) 284-8480.
