By far the best food my family and I have when we go out to eat. The staff is very friendly and it is a lot of fun to watch them work so cooperatively in their small space. It is very apparent that everyone that works there cares about the the restaurant and wants everyone to have a good time... More

Best Cuban sandwich we've ever had!! Tons of sides to pick from. Butter beans were amazing! Not a lot of seating but worth the wait. Second time eating here in 2 months. Mac & cheese, sweet potato fries, and greens were also yummy.Same great food and server, Jennifer, is a great example of Southern hospitality. Highly recommend. Only thing keeping... More

When the sandwiches are stacked with three different meats and more, then you are in for a good time. The food is absolutely amazing at the HogsHead café!

Based on TripAdvisor reviews we ate at this restaurant on Saturday, April 4th. We were very pleased. The restaurant is pretty small, about 12 tables, I think, with a small bar area. Décor is more for the bar, but with some classic looking signs on the wall. The food was really good, I had the pulled pork platter and my... More

The Food was really good. The signature dish is the big boner which is a foot long sausage with pulled pork, coleslaw and ribs stacked on top. Go hungry and you will leave full.

We're visiting the Richmond area and this was nearby, so we decided to try it. Like another poster said, they are hard to find and we drove by it as well. They actually do have a sign, but it is easily missed. Hog's Head is located across from Lowe's on Broad St. It is small, a single unit store front,... More

Nothing, and I mean nothing, on this menu is less than stellar. From the smooth she crab soup to the Cuban Hog, and everything in between, you will be in seventh heaven. There are always daily specials to pique your interest, and barbeque is not their only offering. Fresh seafood is often on the "blackboard", and if you love vegetables,... More

I love real southern BBQ. We used google maps but still had to turn around twice to find it. There is no sign from the main road. It sits behind an empty or unmarked bldg. the food was very good. The chicken sandwich was plain, but the sides were delicious. I suspect they see more locals but we wanted to... More
