Alex Kazakos, who also owns several Breakfasttime restaurants, and his cousin Steve Kontos are co-owners of the new restaurant.

Dan and Robin Swaim closed Cimarron in 2020 after 25 years, first in Elkin and since 2007 in Winston-Salem.

Kazakos said he has added 2,500 square feet to the building, in addition to other extensive renovations. There is now a second, larger dining room, a takeout area with a separate entrance and a new prep kitchen. Kazakos also bought the lot next door for additional parking.

Hawgfish Shack will not have outdoor barbecue pits but will use gas cookers to offer a wide variety of barbecue beyond traditional NC pulled pork.

“I’ll have every kind of barbecue meat you can eat, from turkey to cheddar-jalapeno sausage to beef brisket, NC pork, beef ribs, pork ribs, half chickens,” Kazakos said.

The menu also will have Calabash-style fried as well as broiled seafood.

The restaurant will not sell alcohol. It will offer online ordering.
