Great food set in a very low-key southern atmosphere. The place can be a little challenging to find as is set back off the road in a small grouping of buildings, but don't give up as the experience is worth the effort. The variety of items on the menu makes the dining choice difficult, but no matter what you order... More

What a great find!! Tucked into the center of a small non-descript strip mall, sit this small narrow restaurant. We nearly didn't go in but my son(17) and I gave it a shot. GREAT Choice!! I had the ribs with a couple of sides and the fried oyster appetizer. My son had the hot dog contraption- forgot what they called... More

I browsed trip advisor for a restaurant in Richmond for a quick visit. The reviews were beyond spot on!!!! The portions huge, the food fantastic. The baked apples were unreal, you tasted ice cream when you ate them. I would recommend and visit again and again!

Favorite place to come for BBQ. Can's say enough about it. It is hard to find if you are not from the area, but worth the hunt. This is what southern cooking is about.

visited Richmond on a mini getaway. My sister checked trip advisor for the best place to eat so we decided to try it. Finding it a little hard but well worth it! It is a sign and one door in a tiny strip mall that sits at an angle from the highway, sign on the marquee is very small. Look... More

HogsHead Café has excellent pulled pork sandwiches, but it also has so much more. Their Hog Dog is a masterpiece of delicious food combined epically. Huge hot dog + bacon + deep fried + pulled pork + coleslaw = a must have. The jumbo fried shrimp is also fantastic. I haven't tried many of the menu items, but they all... More

The location threw us off a bit when we sought this highly rated place out, since we did not see the sign when we passed. My phone gave me advice to take a U-turn and we then found the location. Then, it is in a small strip mall, and not even on the front facing the road; it was on... More

Wow! I joined a business partner for lunch here after he insisted we eat at this establishment. I did not expect too much, it is tucked away in a rather small shopping center. Boy, was I wrong! It is amazing food. The service outstanding, and the atmosphere - although it is a small dining area and bar, it is rather... More

While in Richmond, we checked Trip Advisor for a place to eat. The Hogsheads Cafe came up as the number one place to eat. After eating there today I can see why! I had the Cuban Hog and my sister had the Fried Lobster Po Boy. (Both are sandwiches). They were excellent. For sides we had the Mac and cheese... More

Highly knowledgeable chef in regards to barbecue techniques. In-house BBQ sauces range from good to great. Pulled pork and baby back ribs were fantastic. Side dishes were well flavored and neatly plated. Great bang for your buck.
