Wood N Hog is opening in Downtown Champaign

The Urbana location will remain open, but the Champaign 4th Street location is closed. The new location is at 500 N Walnut Street (corner of Walnut and Washington). According to owner Michael McDonald, the 63-seat restaurant space will have the same menu as the Urbana location, and will offer a Soul Food Sunday menu. As you know, the regular menu and the Soul Food Sunday menu are awesome, and we included Wood N Hog among the best restaurants to open in the last decade.

The restaurant will open soon, so follow on Facebook for specifics. In the meantime, check out some sneak peek photos below.
