Really good bbq

We have eaten at Warthog several times choosing multiple choices of meals over time. Really high quality sauce that does not over power with vinegar. My wife and I are Kansas City style BBQ people. My wife really likes their Prime Rib. They have a new place in Parkland we plan on checking out... read more

We have eaten at Warthog several times choosing multiple choices of meals over time. Really high quality sauce that does not over power with vinegar. My wife and I are Kansas City style BBQ people. My wife really likes their Prime Rib. They have a new place in Parkland we plan on checking out soon.

We love this little gem! We are very fond of BBQ and this is one of our faves! We like to come celebrate special occasions here. It's all good! Chicken, ribs, pork, beans, coleslaw and corn muffins!

A very neat little eating place, kind of funny the place looks so small, but there seems to always be room for every one to eat. Food is just great , we have never ordered any thing we did not like. People who work there are friendly, and helpful. We have told a few of our friends about it, and... More

Let me first say I love their prime rib and baby back ribs but it stops there. The beef ribs are all bone and when this was mentioned reasons for the standard was blamed on the beef industry. Offered replacement ribs but they never showed up and we left. Disappointed in Parkland

My Spousal Unit and I were planning a low-key, stay at home Thanksgiving dinner, with roasted turkey thighs, steamed veggies, and a half of a supermarket pumpkin pie. Fortunately, we saw an ad for a "Thanksgiving Feast" at one of my favorite restaurants, Warthog BBQ, in their recently-opened Pacific Avenue location. We called an audible at the line of scrimmage,... More

First and last time we will go here. I didn't like that I had to order at a counter then sit down. I was thinking it was going to be more of a restaurant style than a fast food counter. The ribs had more fat on them then meat and it was all lacking good smokey Bbq flavor or sauce.... More

You would think that a BBQ place in a city predominantly known for good seafood would be a bad thing ----- NOT! What self respecting former A-10 Warthog Driver would not want to go eat at Warthog BBQ Pit? Certainly not this one and I was not disappointed. With my travels taking me to the mecca of BBQ (Memphis) on... More

Having lived in the heart of BBQ Country...it's been hard to find good BBQ here in the Tacoma area. Warthog is among the best BBQ places I have found. We occasionally take it in to work for the staff. Worth a visit for sure if you are looking for BBQ.
