A Little History About Hawg's

Hawg’s first opened their doors in 1985 as The LakeHouse. Back then, it was a fine dining establishment and served the area for many years. 

The Story Of The Little “Boss Hawg” Logo


You may recognize this guy. Our little “Boss Hawg” logo was created by Ms. Katie Marie Diedrich, a local Hot Springs, Arkansas artist. In 2015, the management of Hawg’s Pizza Pub opened its doors to a benefit for a depressed family who had lost a loved one. Hawg’s held an event to support the family during a difficult period in their lives.

It was at this event that Katie created the little sports loving hog. His shirt says it all. He is an avid fan of the University of Arkansas Razorbacks.

When the event was over, the management of Hawg’s Pizza Pub asked Katie if she minded that they adopt the little hog as their representative. Katie agreed and Hawg’s Pizza posted the little hog on all it’s printed materials along with their restaurant’s name.

Katie is an animal lover. She has a Facebook page at “@GoghRescueArt” where you can see her favorite subjects on canvas as well as a large assortment of photographs depicting her passions.

We highly recommend that you visit the site and support her efforts to rescue animals who are in need.

The new management of Hawg’s contacted Katie and we are extremely happy that she will allow us to keep little Boss Hawg as part of our family.
