Just what we were looking for

My coworker and I were headed back up Route 17 to Norfolk after some meetings in NC. We decided to stop for lunch and gas, and were faced with the same old fast food choices. As we exited the highway, my coworker said, "You know what this drive needs, without going way out of our way? A good old... read more

My favorite BBQ in the area next to Skylight in Ayden. You walk up to the counter, order then sit at your table (long tables accommodating 8 or so each) with a buzzer then return to the counter to pick up your food. The BBQ is great, the chicken is also good as is the Brunswick stew. If you are... More

I came to Washington for a week for business meetings. So far best food I have eaten in Washington is at Hog Heaven. Yes, they do close a little early during the week, but for the price and portion size you can not go wrong. I did try their competitors (Boss Hogs) and was very disappointed in the quality. Overall,... More

Has a good reputation in town, but not as good as it should be. Pork is OK but not great, tasted better pork in other places. Counter girl is indifferent at best. Seating is functional, but not attractive. Prices are fair based on what they deliver. Closes at 7pm, so late dinners are out!

With a name like Hog Heaven I would have expected to have abundant portions of tasty varieties of BBQ pork. As it turned out they had no pork at all. We were only offered NY Strip Steak or BBQ chicken. Although the collard greens were tasty, the chicken was dry. Overall Hog Heaven was a disappointing earthly experience.

Well it is reason enough to go. I did enjoy the vegetarians comment, must of thought it was salad heavan. I think you do have to enjoy pork to go there. The "fry bread" is interesting.

Many people like all the other barbacue places around our Eastern North Carolina area, but my wife and I think Hog Heaven is the best. Can't wait to go back. Their barbacue is vinegar based so if you haven't tried it and just know those barbacue's with sauces to hide the pork taste, try Hog Heaven.
