We were traveling through Richmond and saw this was conveniently located off I-64 (and well reviewed on TA!) so we decided to stop and do lunch. First impression: the place is fairly small so we were lucky to grab a table as soon as we walked in at 1:00 p.m. (Others 2 minutes behind us had to wait.) Cute retro... More

We ate there for the first time a few days ago, largely because of several favorable reviews we read. It was good, but not any better than lots of other barbeque places. We usually go to Q Barbeque because it's closer to where we live. I don't think Hogshead is as good as Q and it's much more expensive. The... More

We were coming back to MD from NC and wanted to miss some of DC traffic. Checked out Travel Adviser to see if we could find a place to eat a late lunch. We had to depart I-95 to get here, but was it worth it!!! We walked in with a couple of "regulars" who basically said we could not... More

Went there for lunch on a Tuesday around 11:50 and it was full already. Waitress said to stand around or wait outside. (outside was around 90 so we waited inside) Dining area is small but we were seated in about 20 minutes. Now for the good stuff...I had heard rumours about this Hogdog, all beef hot dog wrapped in bacon... More

We live in Canada and whenever we visit friends in Richmond Virginia, our first question is when can we go to HogsHead cafe. The most amazing barbecued food you will ever taste. There is nothing on the menu that isn't truly divine. Relax and enjoy the smells wafting out the door as you wait in the line.We so wish it... More

I don't get to Hogshead as often as I'd like. However, on my two visits with a family of four....we've enjoyed a total of 8 meals with leftovers to take home. Big portions, great value, and very worth their #1 trip advisor ranking! We will be back!

I Love this place. Everything I have had here is Terrific! My favorites are the limeades, corn pudding and the asparagus fries. They make the best Cuban sandwich in Richmond and the banana pudding is to die for. When I go I usually end up getting one of the hot dogs - they are incredible. This is a must when... More

We were on vacation in Richmond and my daughter decided on the HogsHead. We went off the directions on the TripAdvisor app and ended up on a private road with huge No Admittance sign on it. Definitely not the right place. We switched to Maps and found we were about 6 miles away from our destination. Hopefully this issue gets... More

Our most recent visit to Hogs Head Cafe was for dinner. The food was wonderful as usual. Our table ordered hushpuppies and onion rings as appetizers. Two members of our party ordered the build your own burger. The burgers were served on pretzel buns with perfectly crispy bacon. The other member of our group ordered the sampler platter which included... More

Last night my friend and I went to the HogsHead Café. They were very busy and we sat at the bar and ordered a beer and food. I had a half rack of ribs with corn pudding and beans and my friend had a half rack of ribs and grilled shrimp with onion rings and squash casserole. Our waitress was... More
