I ordered the mix plate for 1 with baked beans and mac n cheese. I didn't like the flavor of the beans. The mac n cheese was extremely mushy and lacked flavor. The meats seemed to have a good amount of smoke but unfortunately they drown all there meats in sauce, can't taste much other than the bbq sauce. The... More

The food was good and worth the visit. The price seemed a little bit costly just for a lunch stop. The atmosphere could use some improvements.

Remember that really good bbq that you ate on your last trip south? That not fussy, always friendly kind of place that's a meat-lover's dream...we've got that here in Battle Creek (and Sonny has opened a second pit in Kalamazoo). I like getting their tangy bbq on the side so I can enjoy the smoked flavor of the brisket fully,... More

First time. We had the Dinner for 2 Mixed Plate. Bbq sauce was good. Ribs were a little tough. Perhaps slowwww cook them longer. Chicken was dry and not much bbq sauce on it or the pulled pork. Mac and cheese was mushy and the coleslaw was average. Cornbread was cold. Not sure why. Not much of a selection of... More

We enjoyed Hogzilla Catering at a wedding reception last summer and then decided to try the restaurant itself. For BBQ it is the best. At the restaurant, the servings were generous enough to take some home for a meal the next day. At the wedding reception, the BBQ buffet was set up nicely and easy to navigate through. Both the...

You know when you walk in the place--the hickory smoke flavor tempts your taste buds on the spot! We have had the brisket, pork, chicken, and ribs--ALL delicious, tender GREAT tasting BBQ! This is a compliment--I'm from Kansas City ;). We know good BBQ! Tasty side dishes also. Not fancy inside but great food & service!
