Hi-Ho#5 BBQ offers many affordable menu choices

IDEAL LOCATION. Hi-Ho #5 is a restaurant which offers the schools and working population many different meal choices at very affordable prices and has a drive-thru for those looking for quick in-and-out service to continue their busy day.

April 2017: Donny and Sarah Davis saw an opportunity for opening a restaurant when a coffee shop went out of business and the building sat empty in the heart of their hometown of Livingston. The family history behind the Hi-Ho brand intrigued the Davises, and they were able to purchase a franchise, with permission to personalize the menu as long as they held true to the original Hi-Ho BBQ sandwich.
Their interest in helping the community thrive is one thing that guided their decision to purchase the building and open Hi-Ho #5 as a restaurant which offers the schools and working population different meal choices at very affordable prices. With a drive-thru for those looking for quick in-and-out service to continue a busy day, it’s a great choice.
There are several things that set Hi-Ho #5 apart from other fast food restaurants.

“More than just BBQ” HiHo #5 was created specifically to emphasize their expanded, diverse menu offered only at this location.

Breakfast is served 6:30-10:00 a.m., Mondays through Fridays, to accommodate the school and work crowds. Lunch and dinner menu items are available ALL DAY LONG, from opening to closing.
Their slogan, “More than just BBQ,” was created specifically for Hi-Ho #5 to emphasize their expanded, diverse menu offered only at their location.
In addition to the traditional breakfast with many combinations of eggs, pancakes, biscuits, grits, hash browns, white gravy and tomato gravy, sausage, bacon and ham, they also offer chorizo-and-egg burritos, a breakfast quesadilla and other items.

“We invite everyone to come by on their way to or from the ballpark. Hi-Ho #5 is open until 9-9:30 most evenings depending on the day; call ahead to verify times, and use our convenient drive-thru to reduce your wait time.”

The barbecue sandwiches are always popular at lunch, but some of the many other choices include hamburgers, Mexican burgers, nachos, salads, grilled chicken sandwiches, grilled chicken salads, and family-influenced Mexican-flavored items, such as taco salad, tacos, quesadillas, and tostadas.
They also pay attention to pricing, with every item on the menu under $7 and many under $4.

WE BACK THE BLUE. All law enforcement men and women in uniform are welcome in the Hi-Ho #5 and are offered a free coffee or soft drink with purchase.

“Periodically, we may offer free coffee with purchase of breakfast, and we sometimes partner with the Doyle schools to offer award cards to students to reward them for good grades,” revealed owners and workers alike at Hi-Ho #5.
“We’d like to note that in full support of law enforcement, all men and women in uniform are welcomed in the Hi-Ho #5 with the offer of free coffee or soft drinks with their purchase,” said Donny. “We back the blue.”
The Hi-Ho BBQ sandwich is not your typical BBQ. The pork and beef BBQ sandwiches and the sauce buns served at all Hi-Ho locations are true to the original recipe.

According to Hi-Ho servers, all meals are prepared upon order, so calling ahead for your meal is always a plus, especially if time is of the essence for you at that moment.

Sarah added, “Other customers may prefer to sip on a soft drink or coffee while they wait for their fresh, hot meal.”
The local community baseball teams – high school, recreation leagues and tournament teams – have begun spring play in earnest, and the local baseball park stays busy with practices and games.
“We invite everyone to come by on their way to or from the ballpark. Hi-Ho #5 is open until 9-9:30 most evenings depending on the day; call ahead to verify times, and use our convenient drive-thru to reduce your wait time,” said Donny. “Teams are always welcome!”
“Come give us a try! You’ll be glad you did, and we’ll enjoy the visit.”

Hi-Ho BBQ was born: Anyone who has attended Southeastern University or visited Hammond is likely familiar with the Hi-Ho BBQ sandwiches which have been popular there for decades. In 1933, Joe and Francis Spitale purchased a small gas station and store at the corner of Morrison Boulevard and West Thomas Street in Hammond. The previous owner, Mr. Felder, made a barbecue sauce that Mr. Spitale really liked, and he persuaded Mr. Felder to show him how to make this special sauce. They began selling barbecue sandwiches out of the back door of the gas station. Hi-Ho BBQ was born and soon became known far and wide, eventually becoming a franchise. The reason the Hi-Ho name was chosen, however, remains a mystery.
