Not bad BBQ

Nothing fancy, but some good Q. We like the half chicken, beans, and potato salad. Parking is a little tough but by planning ahead will get you a good spot.

In a strip mall. The counter staff and table clearing folks were very nice. Very quick service. Minimal warehouse type vibe with concrete floor. $20 for a mixed variety platter with 3 (very) small sides and a cold bland roll. $2 for free refills soft drink. Lots of award trophies all over the place. Food tasted great but venue and... More

Whole Hog is a very good, solid BBQ place with tasty pulled pork and a wide variety of sauces. Unfortunately, the brisket was dry and overcooked. Maybe we had bad luck but next time, pull the pork and avoid the brisket.

By far the best barbeque I've eaten. Friendly staff, fun atmosphere, great food! I've used the catering service and have never been disappointed. My guests always go home happy!

Clean and easy to locate. Enjoyed the brisket, and it was reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend!

We've tried many BBQ restaurants and hands-down this is our favorite. We rarely dine-in, but we do their bulk take out often this time of year for weekends at the lake. I've never been much a fan of ribs, but Whole Hog's ribs have actually tempted me on several occasions and are my husband's favorite. I tend to order their... More

The ribs are the best in the city and the pulled pork and brisket are equal to or better than other BBQ places. The Buddy Packs for taking home for large gatherings or family suppers are perfect at the end of a holiday outing.

Whole Hog is an awesome local establishment that is my go to restaurant for BBQ. But my favorite thing in their menu has to be the potato salad. With a hint of ranch dressing, it is a must have.

I'm not really much of a BBQ fan, but my husband is, and he loves WHog BBQ! I go along and eat it, too, but I'd really like a burger or something else. If BBQ is your thing, this is one of the best in our area.
