Finger Licking Good

They have a small area to eat-in but is mostly a take-out service. They do catering and do a fantastic job. I usually get the ribs and they just fall off of the bone. They also have side dishes to get with your ribs or sandwiches.

Stopped by Hogfather's with a friend after a round of golf (he is a chef and was raving about the place). I'll say that this place has some of the best barbecue I have had, and I have been to many places in the South. Hogfather's has good prices and you get a lot of good food. Well worth the... More

I never liked it, I always thought it's over priced and dry. It may have changed since I was last there, but I never thought it was good at all, but to each his own, I suppose.

Food was good and the interaction of conversation with the entire wait staff was good. Very casual, friendly, and attentive.

Great Ribs. Best mac and cheese in town. Very clean place to eat and it is kid friendly. The best part is the take out drive thru window for a quick and easy dinner.

In my travels I always try different BBQ to try and see if I can get BBQ as good as I do here. It never happens! I always get the same thing.... Pulled pork sandwich that has jalapenos onion straws and a huge fresh bun. The bbq ranch sauce is what makes it for me though. I eat it on... More

We order takeout but there is seating. There are several booths in a somewhat cramped rustic open kitchen room. We enjoy the babyback ribs and the pulled pork sandwiches. The sauce enhances the tender meat.There are many good sides that make it hard to choose so we order several and split them up. They also do an excellent job catering... More

Had 1/2 rack of ribs and southern fried chicken dinner. Knew I was in trouble when the waitress looked at me funny when I asked for the ribs to be served dry. When I got them, it was obvious that the ribs had never seen any smoke and sauce tasted like KC masterpiece. They were cooked to the correct amount... More

Old fashioned barbeque done right. These folks know how to barbeque. The pulled pork sandwiches are fantastic! And don't forget the sweet potatoe fries
