Pretty Decent BBQ

Pretty reasonable bbq. Not the best, but you'll have a great little meal. No fried okra which is a real bummer. Portion sizes are pretty great.

We had shredded pork and beef sandwiches, sweet potato fries, potato salad and beans amongst our family. Everything was perfect...I can't complain about a single thing! Tender flavorful meats, and the sides were nice sized. They were serving the free breakfast (we were there Saturday at noon) but I wouldn't go for that knowing how good the other stuff is.... More

Let me start by saying, the outside looks like a dive bar... But we saw 3 cop cars parked in the parking lot (not there on a call) and knew if the cops were eating lunch here it must be good! The prices are so cheap! On the weekends, they have $2 mimosas! They also have a 2 egg breakfast... More

Friends recommended this little hole in the wall place. Opening the door we werre greeted by the owner and the wonderful BBQ aroma. Clean, with many tables, a bar and TVs playing a variety of sporting events, no volume so conversation was easy. Everyone of the staff were welcoming and accomodating and the food was delicious. We had rib tips,... More

We ordered the dinner for 3-4 people planning on leftovers to take home. Heck, yeah, did we have leftovers! Decent service, place was very clean (even the restrooms!) and the food was very good. Couple of sauces on the table were yummy. We had our leftovers but neglected to get any sauce so we had to add our own when... More

Drove up for dinner with my boss after searching "BBQ near phoenix" on my phone. The place looks like a total dump on the outside and we literally almost turned around before we got out of the car. Since, I had read some decent reviews we still went for it. And it paid off! The inside is much more presentable... More

The ambiance here is low key, with bare table tops, tv screens (tuned to sports) all around the room, corrugated metal wainscoting, etc. But the food was delicious. The Hammered Hog Sandwich is 1/3 lb of pulled pork on a toasted bun with blue cheese cole slaw on top. The pork was tender, moist, smoky, and flavorful. The cole slaw... More

Food was either dry from sitting too long or watery from soaking too long. We started out with the jalapeño poppers which were excellent but when the main course came out it was a big disappointment to our party of 4 which had order different dishes. The ribs were over cooked and dry, the brisket and pork was flavorless after... More

Marti and I shared a rack of St. Louis barbecued ribs that were really falling of the bone delicious. The restaurant is a combination of sports bar and sit down restaurant. The service was excellent and we were taken care of by the owner. If you are looking for barbecue, look no further. The Hammered hog is located on Cactus... More

Wow! Great beer, great food, great service. I remember this as a dive bar when I lived nearby. It's now a great BBQ place with just the right level of "dive". I had the hot links sandwich and fries. Meat was perfectly cooked and seasoned. Nice char on the outside. Fries were basic but hot and fresh. Both BBQ sauces... More
