Mediocre food all around and poor service. Party of 9. various entries. All uneventful. Went for a family diner on a rainy night. inattentive wait staff. Most food just left on the plates.

The service and price are fine, but the taste of their meats is not good at all. I ordered the pork and chicken with sweet sauce, they just tasteless, unlike what it says in the menu with picture provided. It's just fake.

This was the first restaurant we dined at in Michigan. The restaurant closed at 8PM and we arrived at 7:40. We were greeted by the young lady behind the counter who reassured us that it was not a problem arriving so late. I would recommend the "Sweet Sauce". The pork BB-Que was awesome. They have a Hog Wild Pasta Salad... More

After studying the menu we took our chances and ordered. Spouse's chicken was excellent, very well prepared and tasty, even without a sauce. Brisket was a tad greasy and not as enjoyable, despite a very good Carolina sauce. The cornbread was very good. We'll explore some other options on our next visit, but do recommend the chicken.

I had three meat, plus one side meal. Pulled pork was Ok, Brisket was better, one rib could have been better. Chose Spicy Sauce which had a little kick, but not too hot. The cole slaw was red cabbage looked good, dressing was a little ceamy, I did not like it particularly. Came with corn cake shaped like a pillow,that... More

With so many good reviews of this place I was really expecting to have my socks blown off. It was lunch time so I ordered the sandwich special, which is about $6. It comes with a drink and a "side." I really love hot links, so I decided on that for my sandwich. I tried the pasta side, which wasn't... More

If you put a pork roast in the oven, and cooked it slowly with very sweet sauce, I think you'd come up with a good match for the pork at Hog Wild. Its just nothing special. Ordering pork here is like ordering a bbq selection at a restaurant that does not feature bbq. I'd expect more of a smoky flavor... More

We normally will only visit an eating establishment once on a vacation. But, this was sooooo good we went twice. Everything we tried was good. The Pulled Pork BBQ was so big I had to eat it with a fork. The Corn Chowder was the best I have ever tasted!! Service was also very good.
