Great food and great fun

Every time I visit, I can't break away from the sampler appetizer. It includes several types of meat, along with a small cup of cole slaw. Delicious!

Everyone in the area swears by this place and they were spot on. Amazing Food! All their BBQ choices were or looked awesome. I left fat and happy. Only complaint is it's kinda of odd being in a strip mall.

My first experience at Hempen Hill last evening. Ordered a pork BBQ sandwich. It was delicious!! The best BBQ I have ever had. The meat was moist and flavorful. I did not even use any BBQ sauce. I live 45 minutes away but I will make the trip back to this place!!

The BBQ is on point every visit no mattter if it is the Pulled Pork, Smoked Wings, Brisket and I haven't tried any of the others yet. All of the other entrees and sandwiches are also very good as well, we have never had a bad experience. Keep up the good service HHQ!

If in town and your looking for a delicious meal or even a drink, this is the place to go. We've been going for 5 years and love the wings on Wednesday and of course one of the crafted beers. My daughter, from Wisconsin has to make her stop here for a meal. It's a must!
