Yes, those two places closed.

Yeah, Couches (was the Fireside Grill) and Brents both closed - the landlord filed bankruptcy and shut the restaurants down. I'm not sure why Brent didn't just buy them or lease them from the bank, but anyway. Brent's BBQ was the best in town. Really hate to see them gone.

As far as the Blu Pig, as far as I know Lance shut it down and is now just running the Ranch House up at the state line. I was hoping the Blu Pig would reopen during the summer but from what I am hearing, it may have been sold to someone else.

So there are no BBQ joints in Mtn Home at this time. KT's in Gassville is popular but it's a decent drive out of town to get there. Surely someone will open a BBQ joint in MH soon.

KT's may be a little way out of Mtn Home, but you won't be disappointed in their food. It is well worth the drive.

It's really good food...sauce isn't very good at all, though. I wish they'd get a different recipe.

I am sad to hear about the Blu Pig which was already a good drive. I'll miss it, but the state line is just too far away. :(
