After reviewing several lunch spots we chose HogHead Cafe. Great choice. I had the brisket and my companion had the Cuban sandwich. Both plates and the side dishes were very good. The side dishes baked beans and coleslaw were just the right proportions. The service was outstanding. If I ever make... read more

This place was recommended to us when we moved to Richmond. We went many times in the first few months because we didn't know any other good places. Now that we are settled we go every month or so. We originally went because I love limeade and they have the best I've ever had. They also have good lemonade and... More

Sweet josey on tap, which where we are from is hard to find. Very local environment , but we didn't feel out of... More

Al/ways looking for a new place to eat when I travel so I tried Hogshead for lunch for the 1st time. Got there before noon & place was packed with a waiting list for tables. Place isn't big but probably seats 30 with a small bar that seats 4. I had a pulled pork sandwich with fries both were great... More

We went to Hogs Head because of the good feedback on trip advisor. We were on a family trip and new to the area so didn't have any experience with the restaurant. The other reviews are spot on - the food was very good: the nachos as an appetizer were amazing, and the wings were some of the best I've... More

What a find! The place is small and there's usually a wait to get a table and all the complainers change their tune when they taste the food. As one meat eating friend said, "This is the most authentic North Carolina barbecue I've tasted since moving to Virginia. I can't speak to that but where else could I find barbecued... More

Had lunch here, had the pulled chick plate & hubby had the burger. The food was very good & got very large portions. The staff is quite pleasant & food arrives very quick after orders are placed. I really enjoyed the mustard sauce.

Great hopping busy place! Delicious food, pleasant staff, all food out of the kitchen looked awesome! Large portions, fun specials! Had the Chicken Fried Bacon appetizer and Pork BBQ meal would definitely go back often if we weren't from the Modwest.

Went over lunch when I was traveling in Richmond. Pulled pork was good and good size portions. The restaurant itself is pretty small but we didn't have to wait too long for a table to open up.

Everything we get here is outstanding. My favorite is beef brisket tacos. Follow them on facebook so you can see their specials. It really doesn't matter what you order everything is scrumptious. Wish I knew how to cook as well. Love this home town favorite.
