Scott Tabor, the new owner of Irish Pig BBQ, keeps many of the restaurant’s well-known attributes in tact — such as the decor and popular menu items — and has started to add his own touch with a Carribean menu and Southern Sundays.

When Scott Tabor took over ownership in February of New Lenox’s Irish Pig BBQ, he brought a lot of experience with him, albeit from a different profession. Tabor spent the last 30 years as a mechanic and had his own shop in Lockport.

But his love for all things barbecue has been a big part of his life, and Tabor has been “experimenting” with barbecue, He even did some catering when he was in California, where he lived for roughly 25 years.
