Our family has been driving by the Hammered Hog many times since we moved to the Moon Valley area - we finally stopped in, and boy were we pleased! We can never make up our stinking minds, so we ordered the Family Platter to get a lil' ever'thin'.... YUM! All of the meats and sides were scrumptious... and the portions... More

We placed our order on opening night so I can understand the rush/craziness of it all. But the food was absolutely horrible. We ordered take out because the place was packed. The pulled pork was horrible-the meat was sweating from sitting in a heater too long I am guessing. The side portion sizes are lacking and the ribs...honestly, the worst... More

We've been to Hammered Hog several times for their great BBQ....we live the platter so we can get a little of everything. But the 'free' breakfast on the weekends is one of the best deals around. You just need to purchase a beverage - soda, ice tea, etc. and the designated breakfast is 'free'. We had a car club meeting... More

We'd been wanting to try Hammered Hog but the location on Thunderbird closed before we had a chance. Then we saw the restaurant re-opened on Cactus Rd. just west of 32nd Street, so we gave it a whirl. The decor is simple but the best part is numerous TV's around the entire place with any and all sports. We went... More

The new Hammered Hog location is close to freeways and very easy to find. Older building completely renovated and done right with lots of TV's to cover sports in all areas. Best of all is the food, we had the ribs and they are amoung the best you find anywhere. Great job to all .. we will be returning soon.

The Hammered Hog relocated just down the street near 32nd and Cactus - just West of the intersection on the North side of the street. My wife and I stopped in to try the place on the recommendation of my brother. On Saturday and Sunday, they advertise a free breakfast, so we thought, "What can go wrong?" As we entered,... More

Not a fancy place but great bar-b-que with real mashed potatoes(lumps and all) and gravy. I had the brisket sandwich and my wife had the chicken sandwich. Plenty of meat and very tasty. The waitress was great and did not lie when she said it was big enough for two. They have a new permanent customer thanks to Restaurant.com. If... More

We went as a group of six and we used a Restaurant.com certificate. We were early so were just about the only ones there. In using the certificate, we had to order quite a bit of food. We ordered the family platter which our waitress said was served on a surf board. She wasn't kidding! What a ton of food!... More

Good food , great value I mean where can you get a mixed drink for $3.50 and you can taste the drink it isn't watered down. The choices were great and it was really good ...the little pork bites with the honey mustard...awesome. The starters were all GREAT! Fun, some HOT , some just terrific! The outside needs work ,...

We used a restaurant.com certificate as first timers and it was a mistake. We both ordered the ribs which were not very good. They were fatty, greasy, and in our opinion undercooked. We asked the server to return them back to the kitchen but them came out not much better. I had brisket with my ribs and the chopped brisket... More
