Aaron and Jamie Evans are the owners of Hog Wild Bar-B-Que and Catering. Aaron, a native born Texas boy, met Jamie, a native born California girl, from Placerville, back in 2000. They were married in South Lake Tahoe in 2002 and began their life together in Texas.
Now, they’re bringing a little taste of Texas back to Jamie’s hometown and the area.
For 16 years, Aaron was a key player for one of the largest catering outfits in the southwest United States, Eddie Deen & Company. He has been a part of two Presidential Inaugural Balls in Washington DC, the Dallas Cattle Baron’s Ball (which is the largest one night fundraiser for the American Cancer Society in the United States) and many more high-profile events around the country.
At Eddie Deen’s, Aaron learned the art of freshly smoked meats, tasty side dishes prepared from scratch, homemade yeast rolls and, of course, Southern hospitality.
Jamie was an instrumental part of the new home construction industry for 10 years in the DFW area. She always felt that she was not offering a house, but a home for a family to create a life in. Jamie is no stranger to hospitality, either, having grown up helping in her mom and dad’s candy store as well as alongside Aaron at Eddie Deen & Company.
Now, they are making a home, here in Placerville, for their family of 4 wonderful boys.
Back in 2010, the original owners of Hog Wild, Kat and Jack, built it, literally, from the ground up after years of restaurant experience elsewhere. Since that time, the team has built a loyal customer base using quality scratch ingredients while having fun and making people happy while doing so.
Aaron and Jamie, hope to expand that goal while adding a Texas Twist. This is done through offering high quality products that hit the “sweet spot” between art and science—all the while, serving it with a genuine smile!
