About The Smokin' Cue
Allen Riggs - Founder of The Smokin' Cue
After an early retirement of a 26 year career with IBM, Allen seized the new found opportunity to create a business from a lifetime passion. Established in 1994, The Smokin' Cue quickly made headway as a premier billiard stop among the pool playing community. Allen's vision was simple yet effective for The Smokin' Cue: Provide patrons with a clean facility, safe environment, friendly service, and well maintained equipment. These elements have ultimately lead to it's great success and respect within the sport of billiards.
Sadly, in May 2008 Allen passed away. Survived by his wife Roxanne and their three sons (Tyler, Jason, & Matt), Allen cherished his role as a father, husband, and grandfather.
