Harby's Hots Becomes Mike's Pig Pen


An iconic Watertown hangout has a new life, a new name and some very hungry customers.

Monday was opening day for Mike's Pig Pen on Route 11. 

Mike's is the former Harby's Hots, which closed a couple of months ago after 32 years of serving up food and conversation.

Mike Cornell decided to quit his job as a heavy equipment operator for Syracuse Utilities and start slinging burgers and hot dogs.

"We had a great opening day, sold out of all of our products basically," said Mike.

Mike says he hopes to attract both the old Harby's clientele and new customers who enjoy lively conversation along with their food.
